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.

Dear Families and Dancers,
We are excited to start registration for the 2022-2023 season!
As always, your safety and health is our number one concern so please be assured that rooms are sanitized regularly, we have large HEPA UV air filtration units in all dance studios; washrooms are auto flush and have automatic sinks; water refill stations for your water bottles are touchless as well. Our studios are large so everyone has space to safely distance from each other and we have hand sanitizing stations throughout the building.
The Dance Studio
“My family has been with the Dance Studio at Académie Ste-Cécile 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 Académie Ste-Cécile is a positive environment and acts as a second home to my two daughters.” – S. DeVries
“Our three daughters took ballet lessons at Académie Ste-Cécile 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.” – D. Pallisco
