Experience More Than Just Another Dance Class
We believe that learning dance should be a joyful experience. By sharing our passion for movement through music we guide our dancers to discover their own freedom of expression and love for the art of dance.
At Poise, we believe that natural talent alone leads to little reward without hard work and dedication. We instil a strong sense of responsibility and discipline in each student to help them reach their full potential to support their journey to success in and beyond dance.
We gain strength, courage and confidence through every experience in which we overcome fear. Poise’s teaching staff are committed to developing each of our student’s ability to overcome adversity with a positive attitude and achieve the goals they set for themselves.
“We had a wonderful year at Poise Dance. Linda is a warm and experienced teacher. She cares about each child and is mindful of their unique needs. Her love of dance is infectious and my girls looked forward to every class. The dance training is serious and disciplined, yet still fun for the kids. Poise is a studio that is beneficial for all levels of dancers. Children learn to move their bodies and train their minds in a healthy environment. The annual recital is one highlight of the Poise experience. It is professionally produced with imaginative choreography, making it a special show for dancers and audience alike. I highly recommend Poise.”
“Loved every second of the show, and would have watched more. My daughter loved each and every day of her lessons. We loved how she got to be trained in different genres and then partake in each of the dances, regardless of skill. She was in another 2-week dance session the weeks prior, and the show was not even close to being as interesting and professional as the Poise one.”
