Welcome to Dance Sensations By Desire’
Dance Sensations’ aspirations are to NURTURE dancers and INSPIRE dreamers. Every child is different and has different reasons to dance. All teachers and assistants take the time to know why each child enjoys their classes. We care for each of the children, whether a beginner student just starting out, a teen recreational or competitive student going through difficult times. Our studio is very family oriented and we believe that parent involvement, support, and encouragement are essential for a successful and rewarding educational dance experience.
The whole reason for participating in activities such as Dance is to give our kids a greater opportunity. A greater opportunity to further their career, a greater opportunity to improve their fitness, to improve their confidence, or even just to improve their social environment and teamwork skills.
Dance education helps students develop personal focus as well as self-esteem. It helps to lengthen attention spans, learn music appreciation, and allows for self-expression and discipline. The physical benefits of dance include balance, coordination, agility, flexibility, strength, stamina and control. The social and emotional benefits include discipline and responsibility, learning to work individually and as a team; enjoying the success and camaraderie of the class.
Dance Sensations offers classes in Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Lyrical, Contemporary, Technique, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, Acrobatique, Creative Movement, Creative Movement/Tap Combo classes, Conditioning, Ball & Band, “Boys Only” Tumbling & Hip Hop Classes, Teen recreational dance classes, Adult Classes, ADAPT Exam classes and PiYo LIVE.
We hope that we will be able to accommodate your child at Dance Sensations By Desiré and are honoured to introduce your child to the benefits of a dance education.
Ø All students, teachers, and staff are expected to demonstrate respect for all members of Dance Sensations By Desire’, as well as the facility. Dance Sensations By Desire’ reserves the right to dismiss anyone who acts disrespectful at the discretion of the staff.
Ø No food or drinks in the dance studios.
Ø No gum chewing in class.
Ø If a student will be missing from a class, it is their (or their parent/guardians) responsibility to inform their teacher or the studio. While it is understood that emergencies and sicknesses happen, if a dancer has missed three classes, it is up to the discretion of the instructor if the dancer must do a half-hour private lesson at the cost of $35.00 in order to catch up. This is not a punishment: when a dancer has missed too many classes, it is not fair to the group, the instructor, or the dancer themselves. The group does not want to be held back, the instructor has planned out classes, and the dancer who missed will struggle with being behind. The opportunity to do a make-up class allows the child to catch up and will keep the class on track!
