About the School

Leaside Dance School provides a high quality dance education in a local, neighbourhood setting. Proudly serving neighbourhoods including Leaside, Lawrence Park, Davisville, East York and North York since 2010. We emphasize personal development, musicality, and exercise, in a fun and supportive environment. Our students are nurtured in a non-competitive atmosphere where the primary focus is learning the art of dance. Performance skills are developed over the year, culminating in our year end recital. Personal attention is ensured with our smaller class sizes and qualified teachers and assistants. We offer classes at two convenient locations: St. Cuthbert's Anglican Church, and Lawrence Park Community Church. Both locations are fully accessible and feature comfortable waiting areas, viewing windows, as well as free parking.
