The Studio Dance School opened its doors in the Kennebecasis Valley in August of 2003. In our inception year, The Studio had an enrollment of 150 students with one full time teacher. Our enrollment is now over 400 strong with a second studio located in Saint John and a staff of twelve. We teach 80 classes each week to students ranging in age from 3 to adult. We are also home to 5 competitive dance troupes and 3 Hip Hop Crews. Over the past few years we have expanded our repertoire of classes from Tap, Jazz, Lyrical and Hip Hop to classes in Modern/Contemporary & Ballet. We also offer workshops from various guest teachers whenever the opportunity arises.
Since we began 16 years ago, we have trained many dancers, but we have also developed a comprehensive “Teacher-in-Training-program”. Our apprenticeship program is one of a kind in the area. Participants who qualify to participate in this unique program are required to assist teachers in the classroom, attend regular workshops, carry out assignments, and successfully complete written and practical exams. All of this is done on top of their own personal dance training. It is a very intensive and demanding program which requires a considerable commitment on the part of the dancer. The result is a team of highly trained, professional dance teachers that we are extremely proud to have representing our school.
We are pleased to be part of such a wonderful community and do our best to get involved whenever and wherever we can. The Studio Dance School hosts an annual Christmas Food Drive for the KV Food bank. Our staff has taken our skills in dance instruction into local schools, figure skating clinics as well as performing in community events such as the IWK Telethon, Dragon Boat Festival, St. George Church Women’s Shelter and Hestia House.
