Acro Dance 6-9yrs

Acrobatic training teaches flexibility, balance, strength, muscle control, discipline, concentration, CREATIVITY and expression to music.  At this age we introduce bridge, along with cartwheels and handstands, headstands and rolls, along with dance terminology and musicality. Acrobatic movements can include hand balances, walkovers, and cartwheel variations as students get older.

This dance class will provide the potential for personal expression as well as coordination skill building. One of the goals is to communicate through movement and use imagery and games to have fun while creating the building blocks for future development. This class also uses traditional exercises to familiarize students with dance vocabulary, musicality, and choreography.
DanceFusion is an Acrobatic Arts Certified Studio.

This Term is longer than the fall one, and runs Jan.9th until April 30th and culminates in the 12th Annual DanceFusion Showcase (Dress Rehearsal April 27th, shows April 28th-30th). There will be a costume fee that will need to be paid and strong attendance through the term is required. Attendance at stage rehearsals and showcase is required as well.

Turns & Jumps 12+

Sharpen your skills with jazz technique!  The class includes a dance warm-up that conditions and stretches. Then students drill centre exercises and then across-the-floor exercises, for example, pirouettes, Chaîné turns, Piques, Battements, Jetés, Switch Splits, Stag jumps, Attitude Turns and more. This is an excellent technique class that compliments Jazz, Ballet and Acro and Contemporary very well.

DanceFusion is excited to welcome Sammy Jade to the teaching team this fall.
Originally from Toronto, Sammy Jade is a teacher, multi-disciplinary healing artist and performer. She was introduced to the love of Hip Hop, watching her older cousins groove to breaks & beats. Growing up, Hip Hop wasn’t taught in formal classes yet. Music videos were her instructors, basement floors were her studio space and cyphers were just another way to hang out with friends. In school, organically
Sammy’s dance crew and step team made choreographies to perform for her peers at lunch, in the hallways and onstage. As a young adult she continued to street dance as a form of self-expression sharing this love for Hip Hop culture, naturally learning party moves at underground events. Sammy Jade’s credits include Luminato Festival, Kultura, Hysteria Festival, LadyFest Toronto, as well as venues such as the Roy Thompson Hall and The Roger’s Centre, in Toronto. She has toured across Quebec performing at venues like L’impérial, Le Cercle, in Québec City, as well as Club Soda in Montreal for POP Montréal. In 2008, Sammy Jade participated in Pierre Maraval’s photo exhibition, Toronto’s Mille Femme, a tribute to 1,000 artistic, creative, and inspiring women from Toronto and their protégés, who embody the passion and heritage of the city. Sammy Jade is honoured to share her love of street dance styles with Slava’s DanceFusion
Studio.
