If you are looking for the best in Ballet you will find it at PKS Dance Elite Ltd. With two of Canada’s finest, most qualified instructors, you won’t be disappointed. Classical ballet is the essential part of every dancer’s repertoire. All classes follow the Royal Academy of Dance (R.A.D) syllabi, which include the three disciplines of classical (including pointe), free movement, and character dance training. Students at a senior level will also be offered Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (I.S.T.D.) examinations. These classes encourage the development of balance, grace and agility. Yearly examinations are offered at all levels.
