Competitive Dancing

Dance as we teach it is a fusion of artistry with athleticism. It can be competitive and even team-oriented, but it still comes down to a student’s determination to master an art form, to make her body do what her mind commands, and make it look effortless.

Hard Work Pays Off

There’s no way to speed up the process, no shortcuts, no cheats. It’s you and your shoes and the floor. Hard work and repetition, having fun and knowing the satisfaction of doing it the traditional way, knowing you did it by your own skill.

Experienced Dance Teachers

The teacher/choreographer’s job is to lend her experience and help the dancer perfect her technique by setting new challenges. But where some schools actively encourage pain and military-style discipline. Ottawa Dance Academy does not.
