Foundation dance programs in Calgary

About our foundation dance programs

Foundation programs at Prestige Dance Academy are for students who want to pursue the art of dance.

Our foundation classes are the core dance disciplines that complement each other and the growth of the dancers. The focus is on technique and a nationally accredited syllabus is followed and taught by certified teachers.

Foundation classes offer the students the opportunity to examine each discipline. Exam candidates are by invite only, selected by the teacher. We welcome dancers to start in foundation classes without any previous experience and at any age. Learn more about our foundation programs here.
