🩰 ALL ARE WELCOME 🩰
A wide array of classes for ages 3-adult are available after school and on the weekend.
Our highly qualified instructors have extensive experience teaching beginners to advanced levels.
The Philosophy of the Dance Studio is to provide students of all ages a caring atmosphere in which they can learn and grow as individuals as well as artists.
Gain confidence, poise, and a love and understanding of the art of dance. Serious students will be encouraged to prepare for their Cecchetti ballet exams. These are externally examined by the Cecchetti Society of Canada who have international recognition and are committed to the highest standards of training for dancers and teachers.
There are so many benefits of dancing! Improve your muscle tone, strength, posture, flexibility, coordination and weight management. An elegant carriage of the body and self-confidence emerge through the art of dance. The dance experience becomes an outlet for creativity and a way to express oneself.
We strive to create an atmosphere that is loving, respectful, challenging and enjoyable for all. Everyone is given personal attention and is made to feel at home.

The Dance Academy is committed to the health and safety of our entire community, and we have taken steps to address how the COVID-19 outbreak has impacted the school.
We have transitioned to virtual instruction and are working with our dance community to ensure the continuity of classes to the best of our ability. We hold classes and lessons remotely, via Zoom. Performance and ensemble activities are cancelled for the time being.
We understand that these measures have caused disruption to our dance community, but we strongly believe that actions taken have the greatest chance of decreasing risk. These policies will be in place until gathering restrictions are lifted and we will reassess our plans and communicate any changes as early as we are able.
Thank you for your continued cooperation in helping to ensure we continue to follow best practices to keep Académie Ste-Cécile Dance Academy healthy as we navigate this complex situation together as a community.

My family has been with the Dance Studio at Academie Ste-Cecile for over a decade. In this time, I’ve found that the dance teachers at the studio are nurturing, highly qualified, and create a positive environment that allows for the students’ confidence to flourish as they develop their skills as dancers. The attention to detail and discipline instilled in the students through their dance lessons are skills that are applicable to any path in life. The teachers at the studio have taught the students in a way that allows for confidence to grow. Additionally, the studio’s organization for events such as recitals makes it fun to participate. Overall, the Dance Studio of Academie Ste-Cecile is a positive environment and acts as a second home to my two daughters.
Our three daughters took ballet lessons at Academie Ste-Cecile from 1998 to 2018 and we have nothing but positive things to say about our experiences. We loved how their passion for dance and music was nurtured in a very fun and supportive atmosphere. We appreciated how the teachers cared about proper technique and anatomical alignment such that every student progressed safely. Most of all, our daughters learned life skills – to make a commitment, to be on time, and to carry themselves with poise and confidence.”
