 DISCOVERING DANCE

What Makes NGDC Classes Different?

At Next Generation Dance Company, we pride ourselves in ensuring that we have the best instructors to teach every single class. Regardless of if your dancer is in recreational classes or competitive classes, it is of the utmost importance to us that your child will receive the best possible instruction from high quality, experienced and educated teachers. At NGDC, we have a strong curriculum for each class and each age group; ensuring that regardless of the class, every child will be learning our exact curriculum and achieving the same skills as others in the same class. 

When choosing a studio for your child, it is important to research the studio and the teachers. Looking into the teacher's credentials, training ,and experience will help you in choosing the appropriate studio for your child. Similar to a school teacher, you want a teacher that knows what they are doing and is confident in teaching. There is no legal certificate or diploma you have to get in order to teach dance in Canada, therefore, understanding what you should be looking for is very important when choosing a studio for a child of any age and any commitment level. At Next Generation, our staff are highly qualified with multiple different certifications to best teach your dancer for their entire dance career. Please see our Faculty section to read more about our amazing staff!

What Do We Offer?

Our Discovering Dance Program is geared towards dancers between 5.5 years old and 9 years old. At this age, dance classes begin to move out of the "play-based learning" and begin to focus more on technique, discipline and responsibility while still maintaining a fun, creative, and joyful atmosphere. 

In the Discovering Dance Program, dancers are able to choose their favourite styles of dance to study and train in. Different genres are available for different ages, and each genre will progress in difficulty throughout the years that a dancer is training. Please see below for our genres we offer in each level.
