School Year Program
We offer ballet, jazz, musical theatre and tap for students ages 3 and up running from September to June. Not only is dance one of the most universal languages of artistic expression, it can also help you stay physically fit and mentally sharp. Course information is available in the spring.

Ballet Program
The Ballet School Year Program is based on a hybrid of internationally recognized teaching systems. Progression through the program is achieved through mastery of movements and steps in the Richmond Arts Centre syllabus.
