Our Mission

The mission of Dance X-treme is to give young dancers the chance to participate in and explore various genres of dance. Dance X-treme, through the Parkville Recreation Council, will promote teamwork, character, and leadership development and will encourage its students to become successful and skilled in the art of dance while having fun!

Dance X-treme offers the following classes:
Student's ages are as of October 1st (instructors reserve the right to place students accordingly if necessary). All children must be potty trained in order to participate.

Ballet - Ages 5 and up

Ballet is a classical dance form characterized by grace & precision of movement and by formal gestures, steps, and poses.

Tap - Ages 5 and up

Tap is a dance in which a rhythm is sounded out by clicking taps on the heels and toes of the dancers shoes. Tap utilizes syncopation and unique rhythms to create beats and sounds.

Jazz is influenced by other dance styles such as acro, ballet, and lyrical. It is an improvization influenced by rhythms and techniques inspired by theatrical dancing.
