We accept a maximum of 20 students per class. We can accommodate up to 75 students when we open up our entire space for workshops and events!
Each class has one certified instructor. For Ages 3 to 7 (Little Steps through Primary), we also have one assistant. Classes with more than 12 participants, will have one certified instructor with two assistants.
All of our instructors are over the age of 18 and have successfully completed the B.A.T.D.

Many of our instructors are former competitive dancers with 10 or more years of dance experience.
Yes! Each year in June, we hold our annual year-end recital. The show features all of our recreational dancers and many of our competitive dancers! Little Steps dancers also put on a mini ‘open house’ held at the studio during the last class of sessions 1, 2 & 3, where parents can sit in and watch.
The $30 costume deposit is like a down payment. This is paid up front when registering for the recital term (Term 2). Recital costumes will be finalized and billed at the end of May. We try our best to keep costumes under $60.00, however this is not always possible. In some cases, there may be a small additional balance owing for your costume. The costume is of course yours to keep.
Registration and Course fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.
In the event of illness or injury, course credits will be given with receipt of a doctor’s note.
In the event that a dancer feels their course is not a good fit for them, we will be happy to switch the dancer to another course of equal value at absolutely no cost. If the dancer chooses to withdraw completely, tuition fees will be credited to your account. Credits do not expire and can be used toward any future classes.
A $50.00 cancellation fee (per course) will be applied to ALL withdrawals regardless of the reason.
All withdrawals must be submitted in writing via email. No course credits will be applied without this notification. Credits will be calculated based on the date we receive this withdrawal notification.
Credit is not given for missed lessons or for holidays.
Any withdrawals after April 1st remain subject to all recital fees, including costumes.
