    Meet Mr. Chris

    Christopher Bull first made an impression on the Canadian stage as a dancer with the Canadian National Youth Ensemble and a leading guest role on stage with the Kyiv Ballet. Christopher, a Dance Ontario and the Canadian Dance Assembly member, works in large productions and smaller indie venues as a dancer, aerial artist, singer, actor, teacher, and choreographer. Chris is also a Certified Personal Trainer and an active member of the Canadian Fitness Professionals, recently named Hamilton’s Best Personal Trainer (Hamilton Spectator.) Training under the BTDA with Sue Bottrill of Cambridge, Ontario, the National Ballet School of Toronto, Decidedly Jazz DanceWorks of Calgary, Toronto’s George Brown College and York University for Dance, Theatre & Performing Arts has prepared Christopher for the challenges of the world of dance.

    Hamilton's Best Dance Teacher

    Christopher is a World Dance silver medalist and a 4-time Canadian Gold Medalist. He has gone on to perform in full-scale productions such as Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty, Giselle and The Nutcracker, 42nd Street, West Side Story, Hairspray, and Chicago. Christopher has also been active in the Hip Hop and Street Dance circuit, performing in festivals and conventions and is a featured artist with Toronto’s Choreographer’s Ball. Other credits include an award-winning performance in a recent run of Sister Act the Musical, Aerial Acrobatics Artists with Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, and Modern Dance Art Installations with Toronto’s Nuit Blanche.

    Hamilton's Best Dance Teacher, Mr. Chris

    Christopher owns and directs Elev8 Dance, a recreational and preprofessional dance school that delivers quality, fun, and engaging dance training. With a strong background in classical ballet and exercise science, Christopher assesses and prioritizes his dancer’s training to address individual needs. He provides advanced mobility and strength training techniques. He teaches dance to connect with functional movement patterns to ensure his dancers excel as well-rounded athletes while keeping their bodies healthy, safe, and pain-free.

    When Mr. Chris was a little boy, he told his parents he wanted to fly. They put him into hockey, baseball, gymnastics, figure skating, and almost every after-school program for kids, but nothing stuck. Then, one day, young Christopher entered a dance studio and grew wings. Dance took Mr. Chris higher than he thought he could ever go. In dance, he found freedom like nothing else. Over 20 years later, Mr. Chris is still flying, excited to support others as they take flight with us at Elev8 Dance.

    Hamilton's Best Dance Teacher - Mr. Chris

    Some of Mr. Chris’ dancers have gone on to represent Canada at international dance competitions. The skills learned as a dancer have provided his students with offers to attend the National Ballet of Canada’s National Ballet School, Ballet Jorgen Canada, George Brown and Sheridan College for Theatre and Performing Arts, Mohawk College, Laurier, Waterloo, Guelph, York, McMaster, U of T and Ryerson University for Degrees in Theatre and Performing Arts, Television, Radio, Education, English, Mathematics, and Neuroscience.

    We aim to help our dancers discover joy, make memories, and teach freedom through movement.

    What to Wear for Dance

    What are the Benefits of a Uniform?

    We are Dressing for Success

    “Dress for the job you want!” When a student walks into the studio with their dance uniform on and their hair pulled back, it instills in them that they are not just taking a dance class but also a dancer.

    Creates a Team

    A uniform gives the dancers something they all have in common and builds a positive sense of community. Wearing the same colours as the dancers beside you help to build camaraderie. Our community wants to build friendships and celebrate each other’s success. We are all in this together.

    Promotes a Safe Environment

    Dance is fun, often fast, and we don’t always see where we are landing. Having correctly fitted clothing and hair pulled off the face helps to eliminate the risk of unnecessary slips and falls. The uniform also allows your teacher to check for proper body placement to perform tricks safely.


    Your teacher will provide you with the approved uniform items list. Only the items on the approved list can be worn in class.

    Tights: Tights replace socks and underpants. Pink for Ballet. Beige for others. New tights are required for all classes when on the stage, except hip-hop.

      Before Your First Dance Class

      Let’s get ready for your dance class!


      Guide to Your First Dance Class

      We are excited to have you start your dance journey with us at Elev8 Dance! We can’t wait to have you in class and help you achieve your goals! Here’s what you need to know to prepare for your first class:

      Hamiltons Best Dance School for Children

      Dress the Part

      Elev8 Dance is a uniform school. For new students, the uniform is included. With your first class, your teacher can help you find the right sizes and have your items ready for you over the upcoming weeks. Until your teacher hands you your uniform, opt for something simple: black pants or shorts and a simple T-shirt long enough to be tucked in when needed. Take a moment to brush and tie your hair back and off your face. For adult classes, come dressed for some light exercise. Shoes worn outside are not worn inside.

      Stay Healthy

      If you’re feeling under the weather, take the time to rest and recover at home. For trial classes, let us know so we can assist you in rescheduling.

      Plan to Arrive

      Arrive 5-10 minutes early to your first class so we can properly welcome you, show you around the studio, introduce you to your teacher, and answer any questions. All shoes are removed at the front door’s main entrance. Slippers are available at the door or bring some indoor slippers to keep your toes warm on colder days.

      182 Dundurn St S

      At 182 Dundurn Street, South parking is available behind the building. Enter through the front door. Located one block from Soccer World.

      623 Upper Wellington

      Parking at 623 Upper Wellington St (across from 7-Eleven) is available onsite or along Brucedale St. Enter through the building’s side entrance. Find the red door on the top floor.


      Hair for Grade 3 Ballet Class

      Grade three and above ballet classes require a proper ballet bun. Resources are available online, and below is a quick video to help you learn how to make a simple and well-prepared ballet bun. A clean ballet bun will take a little practice to master.

      Dance Demonstrations

      Student Progress Reports

      In dance class, your child is busy learning, practicing and preparing to perform the skills for their program (ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, acrobatics) and their level (mini, junior, intermediate). Similar to a karate exam, our dancers showcase the skills they have been learning in their Dance Demonstrations.

      Hamiltons Best Dance School for Children

      The Dance Demonstrations is an in-studio progress report that showcases and celebrates your child’s growth and readiness in their program (ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, acrobatics) to move through the levels (mini, junior, intermediate). These reports are designed to help your child develop their confidence, performance and presentation skills and practice goal setting for what they want to achieve in dance from year to year. The skills in each level will take a couple of years to learn and master, and the Dance Demonstrations allow your child to celebrate their progress through those years.

      • provides easy to understand feedback
      • tracks your childs learning and growth over time
      • encourages goal-setting and next steps

      Within each program (ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, acrobatics) in-class expectations for learning are set and students receive a summary reflecting their progress:

      Learning
      • Step 1 •

      Applying
      • Step 2 •

      Demonstrating
      • Step 3 •

      Performing
      • Step 4 •

      Students in their first Dance Demonstrations (for their program and level) are expected to receive a summary showing they are Learning and Applying their new skills. Students in their second year of Demonstrations (for that same program and level) will likely be Applying and Demonstrating those skills, and so on.

      Dancers present a variety of the material they have been learning during their class time, from warm-up to specific skills, terminology, collaboration, and prepared dances. A short time following the Dance Demonstration, each participant is presented with an official certificate recognizing their achievements and participation.

      Send an Invitation to a Friend to come try out a dance class at Elev8 Dance!

        What to Wear for Dance Class
