Ballet is a refined art danced by dedicated athletes. Over half a century old, ballet is defined through its poise, grace, power, control and speed. At Elev8 Dance, our Ballet program is overseen by our studio director, Mr. Chris; former professional ballet dancer, 4-time Canadian National Champion and World Dance silver medalist. Mr. Chris makes our ballet classes fun and engaging.
Although graceful and remarkably beautiful on the surface, Ballet teaches our students to develop:
Pointed toes and stretched knees are where it all begins. The skills of a well-trained ballet dancer build an exceptional foundation to excel at all other styles of dance and transfer over to our everyday lives in all kinds of hidden ways.
Ballet is highly recommended for students interested in improving their skills and performance in Acrobatics and Gymnastics, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary and Modern Dance. New students are welcome all year-round. Book Your Trial Class Today and check it out for yourself.
At Elev8 Dance, we strive to deliver the best experience possible, and we do that with teachers who love what they do and bring that to our students.
We deliver fun and engaging programs that introduce our students to dance and take them from kindergarten through high school, developing skills that extend far beyond the dance studio. That is why the Hamilton Spectator named Elev8 Dance Hamilton’s Best Dance School for Children and Activities for Adults.
