|Creative Movement (Ages 3)|
|This program introduces students to the joy of dance through creative movement exploration and is an introduction to the fundamentals of dance.|
|Hip Hop (Age 7 and up)|
|A high energy class that uses the latest sounds in rap, R&B and pop music together with movements influenced by some of today's hottest video choreographers. A lot of fun!|
|Jazz (Age 6 and up)|
|A stylish, energetic form of dance; its roots come from ballet and modern dance techniques. Jazz dance incorporates a variety of dynamics, body isolations, and uses various techniques for turning and jumping and so much more.|
|Musical Theatre (Age 7 and up)|
|This fun and energetic class incorporates drama, improvisation, song and dance. There is emphasis on developing acting and performance skills. Please note that this class does not focus on strictly dance but is a study of singing, acting and basic dance.|
|Pre-Dance (Ballet &Tap combo) (Ages 4 & 5)|
|This class teaches coordination, body awareness and musicality through movement to music. This level is an introductory dance class and combines jazz, ballet and tap dance.|
|Tap (Age 6 and up)|
|A style of dance focusing on different rhythms, sounds and intricate footwork, creating a percussion instrument out of the dancer's feet. Great for developing coordination skills.|
|Evolution Dance Company has a performance-based approach which places a heavy emphasis on achieving the 'S' and 'S' - sweat and smile - in which participants of all ages are encouraged to do their best and have fun!|
|Recreational Dance Classes|
|Recreational dance classes are offered to any and all, ages 3- 93. There are no specific prerequisites for any of our recreational classes - feel free to talk to one of the directors about placement. Each class runs for an hour per week (except for Creative Movement which runs for 30 minutes)
All recreational students perform at the yearend recital.
Students enrolled in both the recreational and competitive programs are always encouraged (but not required) to participate in additional workshops, such as Triple Threat which comes to Winnipeg once a year.
|Is dance your thing? Evolution Dance Company offers a competitive dance program that is second to none. The competitive program allows students to experience the full range of dance with courses designed to complement one another. Competitive dance teams are formed based on a combination of age and skill level. There are minimum requirements for the classes that competitive students take. Competitive students typically dance 5-8 hours a week. Additional classes are often scheduled for competitive teams prior to major competitions. Students wishing to participate in the competitive program must audition. Students transferring from other studios may be exempt from auditions but will be asked to provide a brief dance resume and a copy of a recent recital video.
All competitive teams perform at the year-end recital. Additionally, competitive teams will be entered into the Manitoba Dance Festival, Canadian National competition and at other dance competitions and conventions that occur throughout the year.
