Firefly Dance is the place for children to be their most magical selves. Not only are we learning the art of Ballet in a structured setting, we’re also expanding our imaginations to new limits! Exploring what it would be like to be a leaf in the breeze, a bubble in a brook, a rainbow stretching throughout the sky!

There’s such a joy in moving, one that children can inherently tap into. At Firefly Dance, we strive to highlight that joy through creative games, songs, and stories. Whether it’s weekly ballet classes or an immersive camp experience, we’re bound to get a little silly!

Weekly classes are for ages 4 – 9, and camps are for ages 5 – 11. For the time being we are dancing in Alberta Park, with daily temperature checks/health screenings, and students space out in their own “apartments”. We hope to move back into our home studio (com)motion come fall!
