Program

The Recreational Program

Seymour Dance offers recreational classes for all levels and all age ranges. These classes focus on building technique, teamwork and learning choreography. We offer non-competitive classes in Jazz, Lyrical, Ballet, Tap, Acro, Hip Hop, Breakdancing and more! This program is geared towards students looking to dance in a safe fun and engaging environment. There are no pre-requisites for the classes in this program. However, if you are unsure what level or class will be the best fit, you are welcome to have your dancer attend a drop-in class for an assessment by our teaching faculty!

Performances

Our recreational dancers perform in one large-scale performance at our yearly June recital. There are also additional opportunities to perform in our community which could include but are not limited to Holiday at the Shipyards, West Van Days and Blueridge Good Neighbour Day.

This is a fast-paced class that includes instruction in turns, jumps, flexibility, and choreography. The students do a warm-up working on jazz technique, posture and coordination.  Each teacher has their own unique combination of styles. However, the basic techniques are the same and can be applied to any style of Jazz.

Hip Hop is the current rage! These classes are tons of fun and great exercise. Students will get to dance to some of the latest music and learn exciting choreography.
