Open Division Calgary

Flex/Recreational Classes 2018-19

Designed for ages 6 and up, no experience is required to join our Recreational Program. Students will attend classes 1 – 2 times per week in varying styles of dance including ballet, jazz and/ or modern. Whether your child is new to dance or continues to enjoy the physical fitness and fun of a dance class, our Recreational Program allow them to explore movement and music while introducing the fundamentals of their chosen dance discipline. Dance provides young students the opportunity to develop poise, self-discipline, musicality, improve teamwork skills and build confidence in a safe and nurturing environment. This program is also a great compliment to students who participate in other activities or sports looking to enhance their posture, balance and flexibility. Live music accompanies all ballet classes in this program.


Flex Ballet
A perfect weekly class or introduction to ballet, Flex classes will concentrate on ballet structure through beginning barre work, port de bras, centre practice, allegro (jumping) and the development of a dance vocabulary – all in a relaxed and accessible environment for the recreational dancer. Ballet improves body posture, grace and strength and is the fundamental training that applies to all other dance forms. A professional pianist accompanies each class. Flex Ballet may be taken as a stand-alone or in addition to another Flex Class.

Flex Jazz
Jazz is a fun, relaxed class set to contemporary music. Explore the world of jazz dance while developing style, versatility and increased flexibility. You can choose to take jazz dance as a compliment to your ballet or modern class, or as a stand-alone.
