Young Dancers Program
In a warm and supportive environment, with a focus on health and well-being, our Young Dancers Program is about cultivating talent, passion, and a life-long love for ballet and dance!
The NBS Young Dancers Program has grown and evolved through the experience of teaching our part-time dance programs to children and youth. Formerly known as the Associates Program, this part-time ballet and dance program is designed specifically for children and youth ages 5-17 who live in the greater Toronto area.
This renewed program now offers two streams of programming – Intensive Ballet and Open Dance – which allows each student to choose the pathway that suits them best! Providing a wider spectrum of opportunities to dance, so that every young person feels a true sense of belonging at NBS, the Young Dancers Program continues to be a warm, supportive environment; it provides lasting foundations for physical and artistic engagement, as well as social and emotional development using a holistic, innovative curriculum created by our expert teachers.
Our Young Dancers Program offers:
After school and weekend classes from mid-September to early June for dancers ages 5-17.
Summer programming options.
Opportunities to explore a range of dance forms including ballet, contemporary, jazz, hip-hop and more.
Exceptional facilities at Canada’s National Ballet School’s campus in Toronto.
High-calibre dance educators.
Beautiful live accompaniment for all ballet classes.
Curriculum founded on the same principles of NBS’ internationally recognized Professional Ballet-Academic Program.
In the Young Dancers Program, all students will have the opportunity to explore their passion and potential in a warm and supportive environment. Dancers can move between streams, based on their developing goals and interests
