Classes are designed to stimulate the young child’s natural desire to dance. Carefully planned curriculum is presented in a fun, entertaining way that enhances coordination, musicality and creative ability.

Classes are divided by level based on age and teacher recommendations. Proper training and alignment for a dancer cannot be achieved in only attending one class per week. Therefore all students from Primary C and up are required to participate in at least 2 ballet classes weekly.

Oakville School of Classical Ballet provides a friendly, nurturing atmosphere where each child’s creative talent is exposed and incorporated into the art of classical ballet. The students are eager to learn and take pride in their accomplishments. Whether a student wishes to work toward a career in dance, or enjoys dancing as an extra-curricular activity, the young dancer’s changing body becomes a finely tuned instrument which deserves only the finest and most proper instruction. Only a truly experienced, professional teacher can guide a young dancer through the gradual and careful process of their training.

Our faculty concentrates on developing long lean lines, a strong technical foundation, freedom of movement, and the execution of movements with style and grace.

We welcome enthusiastic students who enjoy the benefits from the traditions of a fine training in a nurturing environment.
