Part Time Competitive

Dance Districts’s Part Time Competitive Program is structured to give recreational dancers the opportunity to move up and enjoy the competitive side of dance. This program allows dancers to experience the excitement and discipline of a competitive dancer, with less commitment throughout the week. Each company also experiences professional educators who are there to help motivate and train these children to develop the confidence and respect.

At Dance District we have two devoted companies of Part Time including the Juniors who range from the ages of 8-12, and the Seniors who range from the ages of 13-17. Our Part Time Competitive program offers classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop and Technique for a total of 6 hours a week.

They both have a passion for dance as well as a sincere love for children and young people. There enthusiasm for dance and for seeing kids succeed and have fun, is evident in everything they do. Our kids have been taught by Miss Kate for three years and absolutely adore her! Our younger daughter won several awards this past year for her solo choreographed by Miss Kate, but more importantly was instilled with the confidence it took to get up there on her own on the stage and perform her little heart out! We are confident that Kate Palermo and Becky Collins will make the Dance District a place that many Oakville kids will call their “Dance Home” for years to come.”

Almost as important as their passion for dance, is being a part of a team and working together to create something. Dance has taught them so many valuable lessons. They have learned time management and discipline. They know how to win AND lose graciously. They work hard all year to create something beautiful, and through that have learned the value of showing up even when you don’t feel like it because you are a part of something bigger than just you. And they have created friendships that will last their entire lives. We love the art of dance, but the lessons our children learn from dancing are even more precious and amazing than seeing them shine on that stage.”

post2 “Becky Collins is an amazing mom who’s passion for dance goes back to her own childhood. She truly loves to see all the girls dances and is amazed at their commitment. She loves all the kids as if they were her own. After all she knows very well that your dance family is your second family. I feel very blessed to have her in both mine and my child’s life.”
