This is where the journey begins!
Goddards offers the beginning student recreational dance classes with a focus on the technical development of skills, in an enjoyable and
co-operative environment. We strive to instil a love of dance and to provide each student with an increase in self-confidence and understanding of teamwork. Recreational dance refers to any form of dancing that is done primarily for its social, educational or health benefits; it includes social dance and amateur dance instruction and performance. At Goddards, our recreational program offers classes in genres of Acro, Ballet, Hip Hop, Jazz and Tap for anyone ages 18 month - Adult.
The studio offers beginner classes for every age of student, grouped by age and experience levels. In December, parents are invited to our open house where the students display and perform what they have learned. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to obtain performance skills and self-confidence, not to mention a great photo and video opportunity for moms and dads. Springtime finds the groups developing the dances they will perform in the year-end recital in June.
Students can remain in recreational dance advancing with their experience level, or if selected, choose to move on to a more intensive program with our competitive team.
