The focus of Mission Dance Centre’s instruction for ballet classes is on two areas of development. The first is technical skills and developing excellent artistry. This is a staple at MDC since it helps any aspiring artist to move forward on their journey through the professional world of dance. The second emphasis in this school is on health and wellness in our “Dancer’s Life Course”. Dancer’s are intensively trained athletes that require a level of fitness equal to any sport, and extra to support the amount of artistry that goes into the profession. This program provides crucial information on nutrition, injury prevention, and mental health to help support and manage the pressures of being a young athlete and performing artist.
For our Pre-Dance program, children as young as 3 can start in this class for those who just love to dance. As our dancer’s progress up through our Apprentice and Novice ballet classes they learn choreography and performance skills that appear in performances for the Pre-Professional Program, such as “Swan Lake” and “Giselle”.
