OUR GOAL & MISSION
OUR GOAL: is to pointe your child towards excellence.
OUR MISSION: is to make classical ballet education accessible to every child in the Durham Region. At Prima Ballet School it is about more than just ballet; it is about building character, and enhancing lives!
OUR PHILOSOPHIES: include taking special care with our newest dancers, insuring they get a happy and healthy introduction to the art. At Prima Ballet School our classes are structured for their success. We believe that a child's first years in ballet are the most important in forming a healthy self image and strong appreciation for learning the arts.
Some other character building attributes your child will develop through dance include cooperation, attentiveness, an open mind, encouragement, respect, self discipline, commitment, confidence, friendship, and leadership.
Remember, dancing is fun. It is endorsed by the Canadian Government as an appropriate physical fitness activity for children. Ballet improves posture, balance and flexibility. Ballet builds character, confidence and teamwork. Ballet is appreciated throughout the world and embraced by many cultures.
