Our mission at The Guelph Academy of Dance is to provide dancers with an intimate atmosphere where students flourish under professional instruction. We are a non-competitive art focused dance school where the emphasis is placed on pursuing the art form, enjoyment, and proper training, not on competition. Our qualified and experienced instructors will work to enhance each student’s confidence, strength, and love of movement. The studio offers children’s classes in Creative Movement, Ballet (RAD), Pointe, Jazz, Tap, Musical Theatre, Contemporary, and Hip-Hop.
In 2015-2016 our studio was delighted to offer classes to over 500 dancers each week having grown from 75 in 2006.
We are thrilled to announce that the studio has won both the 2014 and the 2015 Platinum Award for BEST DANCE STUDIO according to the Guelph Tribune’s Reader’s Choice Awards. We also were awarded TOP CHOICE Dance Studio in Guelph 2015 through the Top Choice Awards – a national award program. In the past we have been voted Gold as Best Dance Studio through the Guelph Mercury and in 2011 we were voted Diamond as Best Dance Studio according to the Guelph Tribune. Our director, Briana Lynch, has been repeatedly voted Favorite Dance Teacher in 2010, 2011, and 2012 according to the Guelph Mercury.
