Note on Acrobatics 

Dance Creations' Acrobatics classes are delivered through trained and certified instructors who have many years of teaching experience. Miss Jen & Miss Jodi are certified through the Acrobatic Arts syllabus, which is a program based on safe and effective progressions in 5 divisions of Acro Dance; Flexibility, Strength, Balancing, Limbering, and Tumbling. Our class lengths allow enough time is given for each division and to ensure your child's safe training (45 minutes for Beginner, and 1-hour for levels 2+) .  Acrobatics is NOT a recreational activity; therefore, it is important to be enrolled in at least one additional class for levels 2+. 

Note on RA.D. Ballet Exams 

Miss Jen (Jennifer Hansen, RAD RTS) is the regions only dance instructor who has attained the training and education in order train dancers and register them into ballet examinations through the Royal Academy of Dance.    

The process of attaining certification through the R.A.D. is limited. Firstly acceptance into the program is through audition, then the training working with mentors and other professionals, passing multiple written components, and lastly by passing two separate teaching assessments.

Furthermore, in order to maintain certification, R.A.D. teacher must participate in yearly C.P.D.  courses (Continuous Professional Development).
