Pre-Teen and Teen

Our pre-teen and high school dancers start in level 3 dance, learning skills to propel them through dance with excellence and confidence. In level 3 and later level 4 and 5 dance classes, students can focus their training on specific styles, learn techniques, develop strength, and have fun. We learn to dance, jump, spin, reach and stretch, roll, cartwheel, and stand on our hands, learning the movement skills that lead to even bigger moves in level 4 and beyond.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is the first item’s accordion body. It is shown by default, until the collapse plugin adds the appropriate classes that we use to style each element. These classes control the overall appearance, as well as the showing and hiding via CSS transitions. You can modify any of this with custom CSS or overriding our default variables. It’s also worth noting that just about any HTML can go within the .accordion-body, though the transition does limit overflow.

Students spend time in class and at home practicing, learning, and preparing their dances, which helps to build confidence and a sense of accomplishment.

    Our kindergarten students have a mixed program. Throughout the school year, we learn to dance, jump, spin, reach and stretch, roll, cartwheel, and stand on our hands. Sometimes, we hop like bunnies; other times, we fly like eagles, learning the movement skills that lead to bigger things.

      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.


      For All Dancers

      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.
