Learn about the Inspire Dance Centre Ballet Program We look forward to meeting you!
Inspire summer programs are the perfect opportunity to be active and have fun over summer break, learn a new dance genre or fast track your technique & skills at our 1 and 2 week intensives.
If you would like to stop by for a tour, we welcome that during business hours. Please contact us to set up a time to meet with us and we'd be happy to show you around and answer any questions you might have. We welcome you to join us for our next open enrollment session starting in September.
In addition to our classical ballet, we also offer an excellent, comprehensive dance curriculum in Lyrical, Contemporary, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop and Dance Technique classes. A student can enroll in just Tap, Hip Hop or Stretch/Tumble dance styles without being required to take our ballet classes. To view our class schedules or tuition rates, please visit the "Dance Classes" tab above for more information.
We truly believe that art can transform lives. When students train at our school, they learn not only technique, but they are educated in the values of creativity, discipline, focus and commitment. They develop the skills of self-discipline, teamwork, and confidence. Students can aspire to performance opportunities in our full-story productions such as The Nutcracker, regional and National dance competitions, elite summer dance intensives around the country, college dance programs, and professional dance careers. Our students, regardless of whether they pursue dance professionally in their futures, take these skills with them on all paths of life.
