Welcome!Registration for the 2018 Dance Season is officially open!
The Deb Laxton School Of Dance
The Deborah Laxton School of Dance specializes in teaching ballet following The Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus from Pre school to adults. All classes are taught personally by Deborah herself who has over 24 years of teaching experience in the U.K and 4 years here in Canada. Other classes include Tap, Jazz/Disco, ‘Glee’ Song and Dance, Disco Divas for the younger children, Lyrical, Pre-School Ballet, Parent and Toddlers Movement to Music for children from the age of 18 months and also adult classes for Ladies Ballet and Tap Classes. In-Home Personal R.A.D Examination preparation for children is also offered along with Dance and Exercise Instruction for girls and women of all ages.
The main aim of the school is to provide personal, professional, certified, friendly and safe tuition at a reasonable cost and to give the chance for everybody to learn and enjoy dance, no matter what their age, ability, shape or size.
The school prides itself on a non-competitive dance environment and the emphasis is on the student and their ability to become a greater individual – they compete with themselves and not each other.
A yearly recital is held which allows all the children to participate and have fun performing on the stage – there is no pressure if you do not want your child to participate then that is absolutely fine.
Children start from the age of 18months with their parents in a Parent and Toddlers Movement to Music class and from the age of 3 years old we encourage the split from the parents and the children start classes on their own!! The school covers all ages from young to old.
For Ladies we have both Ballet and Tap Classes which are aimed at enjoyment, exercise and fun. It does not matter if you haven’t done anything before or if you did it many years ago – you take out of the class as much as YOU want – no pressure at all and nothing is high impact. It has proven to be a great way to meet new people, unwind and have fun all whilst exercising different parts of the body that you don’t use on a normal everyday routine. If you prefer Private In-Home Tuition is also an option in your own home.
