2020/21 Dance Season Schedule

Classes begin Sept. 21, 2020. Registration Now Open!

COVID-19 NOTES: 

 

Upon registration, students can select to be an in-studio participant, a digital participant, or a hybrid participant (access to both in-studio and digital participant spots, so you can come in-studio or watch from home, as you wish). Digital access will be provided via a Zoom login so students can watch the class in real-time and interact with the instructor as needed.

 

All classes will be in offered in a digital/hybrid format until at least through March 2021. As of April 2021, we will switch to only in-person classes like we previously operated but only if deemed safe and adequate health/operating restrictions have lifted to allow us to do so, otherwise we will continue to offer digital/hybrid formats through to the end of the season (June 2021).

 

If previous COVID restrictions return and prevent us opening at any point during the season, classes will continue only via a digital format (such as prerecorded YouTube videos, if restrictions also prevent instructors from accessing the studio space). If such restrictions return, in-studio students will automatically convert to digital students, but the same refund/discontinuing policies will remain in place for students to use if they do not wish to participate digitally.

 

Class times have been adjusted to end at least 5 minutes earlier than previous seasons, to ensure our team members enough time to sanitize necessary areas. Waiting area space for parents in the lobby may be unavailable or strictly limited this season, to ensure we're adhering to mandated social distancing guidelines.

For as long as the current Hamilton mask by-law remains in effect, masks will be mandatory in common areas, including the lobby and washroom (which will be for student emergency use only), and the hallway to and from the dance rooms. As per the physical activity exemption, masks become optional for students when dancing. In-studio student spaces have been appropriately limited this season to ensure social distancing guidelines are maintained during classes (and to assist with this, individual student areas are taped off on the floor).

LEARN MORE ABOUT EACH DANCE STYLE:

Jazz

 

Jazz is a great dance style for first-time dancers and experienced dancers alike! Throughout the year, students will learn many basic jazz steps through a variety of dance activities. Students will also develop a great foundation in learning choreography, body flexibility, and spatial awareness. Jazz is a very active form of dance, so it is perfect for students who love to get up and move!

 

Hip-Hop

 

Come and experience one of the most popular dance styles of today! Students will have fun all year long while learning an assortment of hip-hop steps and combinations designed to improve both rhythm and dance technique. Intermediate & senior students will also learn more advanced hip-hop steps, popping, tricks and combinations to improve stylistic technique through choreographed dance. Hip-Hop is a great style for anyone who can't resist moving to the beat of the music!  

Contemporary

 

The contemporary dance style explores and combines elements of both ballet and modern dance. Contemporary focuses on using the body to express emotion and feeling through dance in a way that is less technically restrictive. Contemporary dance classes are also a great choice for students who would like to improve or maintain flexibility. Previous training in ballet and/or modern is not required -- anyone can enjoy learning contemporary dance!

 

Combo Dance

 

Dreamlight’s special Combo Dance classes rotate between three different dance styles throughout the year – jazz, hip-hop, and contemporary. Combo dance classes are perfect for students who are unsure of which dance style they will enjoy the most, for students who wish to learn a little bit about variety of dance styles without taking multiple classes, or for students who want to keep mixing it up all year long -- only through Dreamlight’s combo dance can a student experience an assortment of dance styles all in a single class! The annual schedule of the Combo dance class is as follows:

 

September – December: Jazz Dance

January – March: Hip-Hop Dance

April – June: Contemporary Dance

Tutus and Tiaras & Tiny Tots Classes

 

We just love being a part of a child's first dance experience!

Tutus & Tiaras give little ones the opportunity to learn the basics of dance and creative movement in a relaxed and fun atmosphere where beginner technique is taught through fun dance activities, games, and exercises. 

Tiny Tots classes are slightly more formally structured than Tutus & Tiaras classes while still offering foundational and beginner instruction through fun dance activities, games, and exercises.

Whichever you choose, your little one is sure to have a wonderful time dancing!

 

Ballet

 

Students will learn some of the primary fundamentals of traditional ballet dance. They will gain a basic repertoire of both floor and barre movements, while simultaneously learning proper ballet terminology. Students will also work to improve and maintain flexibility. Ballet classes are calmer than many other styles. Tutus are not mandatory but are welcome!
