WHY CHOOSE FREESTYLE DANCE CENTRE???
At FREESTYLE DANCE CENTRE we pride ourselves in offering every student the opportunity to not only reach their goals but to surpass them. We see value and potential in all our students and feel priviledged to be apart of their dance education and developement.Our philosopy is to develop strong foundational technique in all styles of dance while maintaining age appropriate movement and technique. We have four teachers who are certified with the Royal Academy of dance and hold their classical ballet teachers certificate as well as teachers with university degrees in biology and kinesiology.All classes are taught by teachers who are well educated and passionate about dance. Who have a desire to instill the love of dance in everyone!
Here at Freestyle we have a unique dance education program. We have specific choreography classes where students will learn how to choreograph for themselves as well as others and to develop their creativity and confidence in their own abilities.
We try to inspire our dancers by educating them on dance history to inspire them and create pure and well rounded dancers. In July 2012 and 2016 our dancers performed in DISNEYLAND. Our dancers had the opportunity to perform with dancers from all around the world in the famous Disneyland parade as well as participated in workshops with Disney’s very own choreographers and performed a showcase inside the Disneyland park.
In 2014 and 2016 we also took our company dancers to NEW YORK CITY for a once in a lifetime opportunity. Students experienced Broadway shows, classes at professional dance establishments, and a private tour and workshop at Alvin Ailey.
With this once in a lifetime opportunity we developed passion, inspiration and a drive to know that anything is possible. These opportunities are optional for our company competitive team. We continue to provide these opportunities for our dancers and can’t wait for the upcoming future and lifetime events. Not only do we travel throughout the world we are proud to bring world reknowned choreographers to Freestyle to inspire our students!!!
Over the past few years we have developed our recreational dance program and now have a new variety of genres and programs that are thriving. Including acro, jazz, contemporary and more. We have new age specific classes and have added pre-teen and teen-only classes. We have classes for all ages and abiilties and have now added a performance team for dancers who wish to perform throughout the community but not commit to our company competitive team. Having the opportunity to develop your child’s dance abilities is a privilege and we can’t wait to inspire and work with everyone.
