Summer Break/Classes

Dance Alive Studios is on break until Monday, July 1. Enjoy your summer and your July long weekend!

Summer classes begin on Tuesday July 2 and continue until Thursday August 1 at our Piper Rose Studios location. Please visit our Schedule page for class times and lengths, and the Pricing page for details on how to pay. There are only 12 spots per class, and spots are given on a first-come first-serve basis, with some priority given to returning students (within reason). Your first class is free to try, so don’t delay – SIGN UP for classes today!!



Summer Planning Survey!

It’s that time of year – we are trying to plan for our summer program and we need YOUR help! DAS will be holding classes from Monday to Thursday throughout July, and we want to know what YOU want to take.

Please take the survey below to tell us what styles and levels of classes you might enjoy. Note that not all options will be offered – we are only trying to see what will be most popular. We don’t have room for everything, so if you don’t vote, your desired class may not be scheduled. If you include your name and contact info, you will be automatically entered into another survey draw for a **$50 DAS gift card** (draw date will be May 1, 2019).

Christmas Break

Holiday season is fast approaching, and with that comes a break for the dancers and the teachers! Our last week of classes is Dec 17 – Dec 20, with Christmas break beginning on Friday, December 21. We do not come back to dance until the second week of January. The first week back to dance classes is Jan 7 – Jan 10, and we begin with choreography!

We hope you have a fantastic break, rejuvenating for both mind and body. If you NEED to do something physical, try out something different than dance. Pilates, conditioning, yoga, or going for a swim are all great ways to keep the body moving while still letting it recuperate from the stresses of dance. Take care and relax!



Remembrance Day

On Sunday, November 11, we honour those that have given their lives and their loved ones to defend the world we live in.

The studio is still open with regular classes running the following observed stat holiday, Monday, November 12.

Lest we forget.



Summer Class Wind-Up

There is only one week left of summer classes with Dance Alive. The dates and times of last classes are listed below:

Mon Aug 13 — Beginner Adult Tap, Adult Hip Hop (6:00 – 8:00 pm)
Tue Aug 14 — Pilates, Nov/Int Adult Ballet and Pointe (6:00 – 9:30 pm)
Thu Aug 16 — Pilates, Adv Adult Pointe and Ballet (6:30 – 10:00 pm)
Mon Aug 20 — Experienced Adult Tap, Adult Jazz and Lyrical (6:00 – 9:00 pm)

This is your last chance to try out these classes for the summer. Don’t miss out!

There is an open invitation to anyone who wants to grab a bite or a drink nearby after any of these nights. Shoeless Joe’s or Brown’s Social House is a good option in Stonebridge, and we can decide on something that may be open closer to Quebec Ave on Monday nights (tentatively Birmingham’s). No pressure at all, just a casual opportunity to visit with dance friends and meet some new ones to wind up the summer schedule!

After Aug 20, there will be a two week break from Aug 21 – Sep 3. Regular Season classes will begin on Tuesday September 4, after the long weekend.

Thanks for enjoying summer-time dance with us 🙂

Time for Costume Measurements!
