Jenks Dance Academy is hip-hop and ballet, it's tumbling and it's jazz...but it's never quiet. That's the common denominator in this otherwise versatile dance school. Regardless of genre, all classes are active, engaging, and led by professional dance instructors keen on keeping things quick-footed and interactive. Jenks welcomes boys and girls as young as 12 months old for classes and camps that incorporate fitness, creativity, and self-discipline. So whether your daughter's enrolled in the princess camp?a ballerina-focused dance camp with props such as wands and tiaras?or your kid's strutting their stuff with swagger in the superstars/hip-hop class, they'll be honing their flexibility and coordination, building physical strength, and building the self-confidence necessary to drop jaws in the dance recital or produce aisle.
Jenks's studio is staffed with professional instructors. It's also equipped with modern enhancements in place to facilitate structure, dexterity, and safety. For instance, there are one-way observational windows, raised wood floors that prevent injuries or kids tiring out, and a separate kids' play room. The center also features a boutique with shoes and apparel.
Ballroom Revolution's certified instructors teach adults and kids that it's easy to dance the ballroom styles. They believe anyone can master ballroom, which they prove during private and group lessons where students grow in grace and confidence. To enhance the self-confidence that pupils earn in lessons, the studio also hosts dance parties where fancy-footed prodigies socialize and show off their moves.

Students at Dance Dynamics, a registered member of the Canadian Dance Federation, may recognize the director, Herb Clarke. The veteran dance teacher and Dance Saskatchewan board of directors member has starred in his own teaching series on Shaw Cable and has appeared alongside Juliet Prowse on PBS’s Championship Ballroom Dancing. He harnesses his fleet-footed expertise and choreography experience to lead students of all skill levels through lessons in a variety of dance styles, such as rumba, salsa, swing, and waltz. In doing so, Clarke and his teaching staff help students reap the benefits of dance, such as stress relief, weight loss, and the ability to summon Fred Astaire by whispering his name into a candlelit mirror.
Kim Massay offers a plethora of classes to motion mavens of all ages, levels of skill, and areas of interest. The small sessions consist of 12–18 dancers, under the tutelage of the studio's expert instructors. Both casual and competitive classes are available, allowing students to kinetically express their joyful release or horseradish craving in the appropriate setting. Age-specific classes match students of similar skill levels in classical twirling callings including jazz, tap, and ballet. More modern movers can move to the beat of hip hop, contemporary, and Zumba drums, and ballroom courses challenge duos of hoofers to perform in a room full of colorful plastic orbs. Each course begins with a warm-up session, followed by floor exercises, a technical skill workshop, and choreography practice in the bright, polished studio, lined with photos of dancers in motion. Kim Massay's studio is open Monday through Thursday. Classes for all ages take place in the afternoon and evening, and students can take up to five per week. Because of the broad range of class offerings, students should call the studio for a full schedule.
At Teaze Dance & Fitness, instructors draw from history to inform many of their classes—that's why you might see students channeling Bettie Page's famed burlesque twirls, or rehearsing disco moves on roller skates. During photo shoots, subjects drape themselves in feather boas and unfurl fans on antiquated furniture, emulating vintage pinups without enduring an old-timey cameraman's requests to smile and say "transcontinental railroad." Even the studio's performing troupe, the Oklahoma Showgirls, traverses time with their cancan, cabaret, and mod go-go routines. Just as they span the century with their titillating teachings, they welcome visitors of all ages and builds to participate, allaying anxiety with the fact that most of their students are beginners.
However, the staff embraces modern rhythms as well. They welcome guests to access their sultry side on 14 studio poles, where seven levels of pole-dance classes reveal techniques from basic spins to competition choreography. Their private parties entertain groups with empowering lessons on pole-, chair-, and lap-dances, and fitness options cover Pilates and barre workouts.
