These students are generally between the ages of 11-14 years old with between 1-3 years of dance experience. This level is often recommended to students who want to dance twice per week while allowing them to dance with peers their own age. This level offers an hour and fifteen minute ballet class, a one hour tap class, a one hour jazz class per week. Students will work towards two dance exams with the Performing Arts Educators of Canada to be examined in February/March and a parent performance in January and the annual June recital.
Our Classes run from September until mid June when we present our annual recitals. Registration information can be found on our registration page, under the Classes tab.
How to register
We accept in person registration, telephone registration with Visa or Mastercard, and email registration by scanning and emailing the completed registration form including credit card information.

The Teen 1 class wears the school uniform black bodysuit and pink tights. Tan or black tights are permitted for tap and jazz classes. Boys wear black pants and white T-shirts. Please no loose sweaters during class; it makes it difficult for the teacher to make body alignment corrections. You can purchase all required dancewear at your Maritime Dance Studio, please come in to be sized. Hair should be styled so that it is back off the shoulders and neck for all dance classes and performances. (A bun is great!)
The Teen 1 class is required to have leather ballet slippers, jazz shoes and tap shoes. Exam classes are not permitted to wear Payless or Wal-Mart ballet slippers because the sole of the shoe is too hard and the students cannot point and flex their feet properly. These items may be purchased at your Maritime Dance Academy studio.
