Award winning Elite Competitive Team (Full Time)


Our Elite Competitive Team is known for their strong technique and artistic excellence. DSBCD dancers are versatile young artists who perform professional choreography in all genres of dance.

The DSBCD Competitive Team trains in Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Acro, Tap, Intensive Stretch and Hip-hop. Participants compete in competitions throughout Ontario and New York City. Acceptance into this program is by Invitation/Audition.

We are so excited to announce the launch of our new “Part-time competitive” program!

This program is designed for dancers ages 8 + who want to participate in dance competitions but at a reduced level of commitment. We are offering options of focus in Hip-hop or Acro/Jazz. This will allow part-time dancers to spend their time developing their passion and having the opportunity to share it on the competitive stage. Time commitment will be 2 days per week with a personalized schedule catered to the goals/needs of each individual. We realize that not all children can be put into the same mold, and we want to offer a platform for expression for students who may not be ready for a full time commitment but still want the fullness of the experience!

Pre-professional Program


This Program is for students who wish to pursue post-secondary training in dance and/or pursue a professional career. We help mentor young artists and prepare them for the dance world at large. Private coaching is available to these students in addition to curriculum training. We prepare advanced students to participate/audition at the highest calibre competitions and Conservatories such as Youth American Grand Prix, The World Ballet Competition, The Juilliard School, The Joffrey Ballet, The Ailey School, The Royal Winnipeg Ballet and The National Ballet of Canada.

    Good afternoon,

    I would like to sign up my daughter Sophie (4 years old) for fall dance program. Recently she became very interested in dance and started asking me to sign her up for ballet classes :). Since its late in the year I have signed her up for a community centre dance program and she loves it.

    I’d like to ask when do the classes start in the fall. How long each one lasts and what days are available? Also what is the cost of the program? Would you have any open doors days in the nearest future so we could come and see your school?

    Thank you for your reply.
    Maggie Perotin
