What We Offer
Here at Eurhythmics Dance Studio, all programs offered are designed to promote and develop self-esteem, confidence, team work, musicality and the love and joy of the art of dance. We offer top qualitiy instruction in tap, jazz, ballet, pointe, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop and musical theatre.
Each lesson is carfully designed and planned by the instructors to suit all ages and levels.
We offer semestered programs for ages 3-6, non-competitive programs, pre-competitive programs and competitive programs for ages 7 and up.
We believe everyone has the right to persue their love of dance in any discipline, however, a dancer must be placed in the appropriate level based on their capabilities,not on their age. A dancer's ability to understand their mind and body when it comes to dance is taken into careful consideration before placing them in a class. We need to ensure that we are encouraging dancers, not discouraging and most of all we want to avoid any injuries that can happen if a dancer's body is not ready.
Dancer's will be assessed within the first couple of classes to be sure that their placement in certain levels is correct for their capabilities. Dancer's may be moved around in classes based on the instructor's discretion. We ask that you please respect the instructors decisions and choices as we want to protect a dancers body to ensure that they can dance for as long as they can.
Now, check out all the classes that Eurhythmics has to offer and find your passion!

Adult Programs - At this time we do not have a scheduled adult class. Once the dance term commences in September and all dancers are settled into their lessons we will try to make room for those parents that are interested. We could offer a jazz, hip hop or even tap class - based on demand for which program. This program allows the parents (including the dads) to experience what their children are doing and learning at our studio as well as get more involved in the studio atmosphere. It is alot of fun and you also get a great workout! If you are interested in an adult class, please email us or call us. More information regarding the adult program will be available in late September.
