Dance and Movement
These courses are a great way to stay physically fit and improve on coordination, balance and fluidity in movement.
We offer a range of Children and Adult programs from beginner to intermediate levels for those who want to refresh skills in dance and creative movement without committing to a full year program.
We also offer the opportunity to explore different types of dance and creative movement for children ages 6 months and up.

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.
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.
