EDS is excited to welcome peanuts as early as 18 months. Our “Tiny Tots” program is geared towards ages 18 months – 2 ½ yrs and our “Dance for Tots” program is geared towards ages 2 ½ – 3 yrs. These two tiered pre-school programs is an introduction to dance and are the building blocks to our recreational programs.
Our recreational programs are designed for any age, any skill level. These fun and exciting classes provide constant positive re-enforcement building confidence right before your eyes. All our friendly staff of teachers bring a lighthearted approach of teaching while implementing the importance of learning the proper technique of movements.
Geared towards the dancer who thrives on challenge. These classes teach and demand discipline and good time management as dancers are challenged to balance good school grades (a strong importance) with their dance. Does your dancer wish to continue on to be a performer, choreographer, or is just ready for that next level of intensity in performing? EDS provides a program that challenges dancers and positively encourages dancers to strive to better themselves not only as an athlete, but as an artist creating their masterpiece on a stage.
The strength class is not a dance class. This 8 week program is designed for individuals of all levels. No experience is necessary as our highly trained and experienced trainer provides a class that is modified to the individuals in the class. These classes work through proper alignment and placement of the body while strengthening the muscles. They are great class for athletes of any sport who want to enhance their strength and control for injury prevention as well as individuals who just want to tone their body for overall physical and mental health.
was established in 1986 by Deanna Clatworthy. Proudly taking over the role of owner, Chrystal Mazzotta is continuing the idea of having a dance school that is dedicated to providing a positive family oriented environment. A place where dancers can come express themselves, and just have fun! EDS is composed of a well trained staff that have proven themselves to be dedicated and proficient. With this, they have helped many students to reach their goals and, in many situations, exceed them. Students from Encore Dance Studio have gone on to be accepted at The National Ballet School, The Quinte Ballet School, Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts, Sheridan College and many other great establishments. Others went on to perform in music videos, musical productions, at holiday resorts and on cruise ships. We are extremely proud of the accomplishments that our students have achieved and look forward to helping them make their dreams become a reality in the future.
