This class introduces children to movement and music through a program that emphasizes their creativity, flexibility, and coordination. Designed especially for children aged 3-5 and taught in a caring and fun environment
CONTEMPORARY / MODERN
Contemporary dance combines the techniques learned in ballet in a modern and exciting way. Dancers learn to express themselves through movement and musical interpretation.
Jazz dance is a fun and energetic. The music is energetic and the dance style involves jumping, turning and a high degree of musicality.
Tap dance has been a favourite for young dancers for many years. The dance relies heavily on beat and rhythm. Dancers develops their footwork as well as their coordination between legs and arms.
At Ballet Montreal we compete in at least three competitions a year, in all our dance formats. All serious students are encouraged to participate in this experience. We welcome experienced students from all schools.
Our junior company is a truly unique experience. Qualified students audition to take part in a rich and exciting dance experience. For talented dancers hoping for a professional career this is a very rewarding opportunity.
