Our Programs

As one of the only Summer Dance Intensives of its kind in Canada, Elevate strives to provide a stellar learning environment fuelled by positivity, motivation and inspiration for dancers to thrive. Our mission is to elevate young dancer’s minds, bodies and spirits to a level they have never reached before. It is so important to us to give dancers a place to learn about bettering their dance training and to learn more about themselves. 

The weekly curriculum includes a daily ballet class, and a distinct variety of supplementary techniques including jazz, modern technique class of either Horton-based and/or Graham–based modern, body conditioning, improvisation and repertory.  In order to give students the most effective and focused training, all students are evaluated individually and placed in the proper level in each technique and our Faculty and the Program’s Director create a customized schedule for each student.

All student’s, no matter the program, will be in class together. Once a student’s program has completed, the dancers who are attending a longer program will continue. Students who participate in The Intensive program will perform in the program-end showcase following their intensive to share their hard work and repertoire that they have learned.

Each Program offers different outcomes, you can see the differences in programs below!
