Why dance at Ross Creek? 
“This  summer camp brought about the most significant growth I have ever seen in a group of dancers over the course of the two week period.  I think this is a result of a supportive atmosphere encouraging exploration and risk-taking, relaxing and fun surroundings to balance the intensity of the dance schedule, positive and cooperative faculty who are equally accomplished as they are enthusiastic about dance and pedagogy.”                                       – Belinda McGuire, Contemporary Dance teacher, DSD 2013, 2014, 2015. 

2023 Summer Dance Intensives at the Ross Creek Centre
We are excited to welcome you to the most advanced summer dance training program in Atlantic Canada. With instructors from the National Ballet School, School of Toronto Dance Theatre and from the world of professional dance, we invite young dancers to push themselves and develop their skills, to learn about professional dance and to create magic through movement, all at a dance retreat at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts, close to Canning, Nova Scotia.

Small class sizes ensure individual coaching and help to create attentive and supportive rehearsal environments. The program combines education in modern and ballet technique and choreography in a non-competitive setting with live accompaniment. After class, we encourage recreation and relaxation on our 178-acre property, with rustic cabins, walking trails, freshly made food- grown on site and beach trips supported by our highly trained camp staff.

Dance at Ross Creek augments a dancer’s ongoing training, giving him or her an intense program in ballet and modern dance along with body conditioning and stretch and strength conditioning, while also encouraging a creative approach to the world through other arts workshops throughout the program to give their bodies a chance to rest and to encourage bonding. This intense and inspiring mix of dance and camp creates life-changing experiences for young dancers. We are committed to the study of dance as part of a healthy, full life for all. We are equally committed to the development of dance professionals, and our Dance programs serve both kinds of students well.

​Former Ross Creek Dance program students have gone on to study in all fields, including professional dance training schools such as Toronto Dance Theatre and Juilliard, and to have careers with Parsons Dance, Bern Ballet, MOCEAN Dance, and many other professional companies.
