News & Events
Welcome to the 2017-2018 Season
Dear Parents and students,
Welcome to another season of dance.
To all of our returning students thank you for helping us to make last season the best ever, we were voted number one dance studio in Bradford and that is thanks to all of you. To all of our new students, welcome to Simcoe.
We have welcomed many new dancers into our family and have enjoyed the talent and energy that they have brought with them.
Classes will fill up quickly so please register early to secure your place in a class. Icannot hold places so please make the time to register so as not to be disappointed.
At Simcoe we offer a friendly, caring, but disciplined environment where our students can develop their talents in all areas of dance.
All of our qualified staff members are trained to teach to the level that we require of them.
Students may participate in exams, which we offer in ballet, tap, jazz and modern. Exams are a great achievement and we encourage those students who have the ability to participate in the extra classes. We have trained many, many students who have completed their teaching certificates and gone on to follow a career in the dance field.
Our year-end show is held at the Newmarket Theatre and in 2018 will be held on Saturday June 23rd and Sunday June 24th, 2018.
Our season runs from Saturday September 9th, 2017 until our last performance of the show. Although for your convenience we offer monthly, term or payment in full on registration, it is expected that the student and parents understand that the commitment is for the full season.
Please also note that as our season runs over a span of 38 weeks this season, not including the two weeks at Christmas and the one week during March Break when we will be closed. This means that your payments will only span over 9 months with a half month payment in June 2018
- No gum chewing in class
- Use the garbage cans provided
