Ballet classes in Canada

Find Kids’ ballet classes and lessons near you

Dance can be a great activity for kids. If your child is interested in dance, one option is a ballet class or lesson. In Canada, these classes can be found in many cities, including Toronto, Mississauga, Etobicoke, WindsorVancouver, and Montreal.  

While learning ballet is no small feat, it can be a nice summer or winter activity. Sometimes ballet is offered as part of a specialized ballet school, camp, or program. Other times it’s offered as one among other types of dance, such as ballroom, jazz, or hip hop. And it may even be offered as part of a traditional camp or program, where your child can take part in other sports, arts, or educational activities.

What a ballet class has to offer

In a ballet class, your child will learn the basics of ballet. This may include both classical and modern ballet. They’ll learn ballet moves and positions, such as the plié, pirouette, grande jeté, and arabesque. They’ll also learn proper stretches and exercises. And they’ll be taught by a trained instructor, who may have professional dancing experience.

Whether your child is just starting out or has advanced skills, you should have no problem finding the right class. There are ballet classes for kids of many different ages and levels. This includes programs for beginners or those just starting out. It also includes higher-level classes, for those who are looking to learn more challenging ballet moves, positions, and choreography.

The benefits of ballet class

Whether your child is a budding ballerina or a danseur, ballet can be a great option for your child. While it’s a demanding dance to learn, it can allow your child to improve their:

  • skill level,
  • gross motor coordination,
  • strength,
  • fitness,

and

  • overall dancing abilities.

It can also have other benefits you might not expect, including boosting your child’s confidence, self-esteem, and leadership abilities. And ballet lessons can also be stimulating and inspire creativity.

Below, find a ballet class near you. These include summer, winter, PA day, passover, and winter and March break classes.
