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 quality instruction in tap, jazz, ballet, pointe, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop and musical theatre. Each lesson is carefully 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 pursue 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 dancing 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 instructor's decisions and choices as we want to protect a dancer's 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!
Ballet Programs –
Ballet is the fundamental discipline of all dance types and is recommended to accompany any other choice of discipline. Our Ballet technique classes emphasize the Royal Academy of Dance’s method of ballet training. Toning and conditioning are incorporated in each lesson. Students are educated throughout their lessons as to muscle strength, grace, musicality, expression, posture and the beauty of the art of dance. Free movement, character work and modern are also introduced throughout each term in your ballet lessons. Pointe work is available to students at higher levels and is at the sole discretion of the instructor. Examinations held by the R.A.D are offered at the instructor's discretion only.
Tap Programs –
Basic tap technique is taught at all levels. Students will learn rhythms and musicality associated with tap techniques giving them the ability to make music with their feet. Students develop rhythmic footwork, creative combinations and challenging beats at each level.
Jazz Programs –
Jazz is a physical and energetic dance form. It emphasizes body lines, flexibility, and musicality. This program is designed to promote and increase flexibility and strength in each individual dancer. Progressions, turns, and jumps are also incorporated throughout the dance term. Our programs expose all dancers to many different styles and techniques.
Hip Hop Programs –
Hip hop, or street dance, is a class that incorporates rhythm, coordination, and dance with the excitement of street moves or moves and combinations you see in pop and other music videos. Students will learn technical elements through small combinations throughout each lesson. To increase your coordination and ability to pick up certain hip hop styles, a jazz class is often recommended.

A very popular choice amongst dancers. This program incorporates jazz techniques with the excitement of singing, acting, and dancing.
