Why Dance?

Arts research shows that students who study dance are more:
  • self motivated, disciplined and focused in their everyday lives.
  • expressive in their communication of emotions, thoughts and feelings.
  • creative and imaginative.
  • able to critically analyze their own work and the work of others.

The Dancer's Extension focuses on an academic approach to dance education, where students of all ages have the opportunity to be creative while learning the technique of fine art of dance. We recognize the need for dance to be an exciting and creative art form, with a strong focus on health, exercise and positive self-esteem. The Dancer’s Extension is a bright, clean and professional dance space with up-to-date equipment. The studio space features a Marley sprung floor, safety mirrors, sturdy barres and a piano for live accompaniment. Our studio is an inviting place for all who enter and we welcome you to join us! We are grateful to all those in the community who support The Dancer's Extension, including our students, parents, and friends.  Thank you.
