If your child loves dance and gymnastics, then this is the class for them! Acro focuses on concentration, balance, flexibility, strength, and control. Throughout the season, Acro students will work on strengthening their minds and bodies to perform a variety of skills and exercises such as head/hand stands, back bridges, cartwheels, and more. We teach the Acrobatic Arts curriculum to ensure your child follows a safe and technically accurate progression of Acro skills. All of our Acro and Tumbling instructors are certified throughout Acrobatic Arts and/or Gymnastics Ontario. Our instructors are able to fuse the power of acro skills with the art of dance and prepare students for a performance setting.

This style of dance teaches dancers the importance of being spatially aware, persistent, and confident. It often includes working with a partner and using balance and agility skills to work together and achieve a common goal. Acro students will experience the joy of accomplishing hard earned personal goals with the techniques learned in class.

Ballet classes will give your child superior technique that will benefit all of their dance classes at Bloom Dance Company. We hold the highest regard for the training of our Ballet dancers, and follow the Royal Academy of Dance curriculum. From beginner to advanced classes, students are formally trained while being taught the value of technique, discipline, and honoring tradition. As Ballet is the foundation of most dance training, we recommend that every student take Ballet classes to develop poise, good posture, proper body alignment, and graceful movement.

Dancers enrolled in Bloom’s Ballet program will work to perfect technique while developing coordination between the mind and body. Ballet requires dancers to channel their energy in a positive way, and is an excellent dance form for both male and female students alike.

All of our Ballet instructors have studied vigorously to ensure the next generation of dancers are given the knowledge and confidence to execute steps and perform to their greatest potential. Ballet Exams are offered for students wishing to achieve certification, and in the future have the option of pursuing a teaching career. We are grateful to have Ms Debra Jones as our Ballet Director, who is a certified Teacher, Mentor, and Examiner with the Royal Academy of Dance. This opportunity is invaluable to students pursuing their Ballet Exams through the Royal Academy of Dance.
