On Stage is Stratford’s largest, most-trusted dance studio—we’ve even been voted Stratford’s top studio for 9 years running! Here’s why:
At On Stage there is a program for everyone! Boys and girls ages 2 & up are welcome. We ensure that all students receive the same well-rounded training, from beginner to advanced. We begin by nurturing each child’s innate love for movement, and guide them to the joy that dancing can bring. All of our programs move beyond simply learning & repeating a recital routine, to include aspects such as dance composition, improvisation, dance history, anatomy, music theory, & more! What your child can learn is unlimited… The sky’s the limit!
With a combined teaching experience of over 50 years, our knowledgeable staff of both male & female instructors are committed to passing on their love of dance to your child. With such a wide range of experience (from professional ballerinas to certified Ontario school teachers to musical theatre performers) you can feel comfortable knowing that your child is in good hands. Plus, our staff’s commitment to lifelong learning—yes, we still take class too! – means that your child’s dance education will remain up to date & current.
Our conveniently located studio boasts 3 large dance rooms—all with professionally sprung flooring to reduce the risk of injury. We also offer ample changeroom and lobby space, plus parking in the rear.
Being located in the downtown core means that it’s easy to walk, bike, or bus to the studio, too!
Above all else, On Stage commits to being a welcoming, nurturing space for dancers of all ages, abilities, & levels. A healthy development of positive self-esteem, confidence, & social interaction shows that we value your child’s growth— not only as a dance student, but in all areas of development. Dance classes impart so many important skills – self-confidence, teamwork, commitment, the reward of hard work. At On Stage we truly are a family, and hold strong in our belief that “Dance lessons are life lessons!”
There’s a special joy of being a part of On Stage. Yes, we believe in dancing to the very best of your ability (and we work hard to ensure each child reaches their dance potential!) but we believe that laughter is where we all live most—and there’s lots of that here at On Stage, because we’re having so much fun together!
