What IR Dance families have to say . . .
"Thank you IR dance for being so wonderful!! My daughters love taking dance classes at the studio. All the teachers have been wonderful and engaging. The studio is so organized, kind and helpful! I am super impressed with the amazing job IR dance has done during this difficult pandemic! They have such a great and safe plan put into place so kids can enjoy dancing again in the fall. My daughters are young and just beginning to dance but I can see the relationships with the older students and staff - it truly is like a special family!!"

"We can't recommend Innovative Rhythm highly enough! My daughter has been dancing at IR Dance since she was 3 - she's 13 now - and she's gone from one class a week to now taking 10, spanning every discipline - and she'd take more if she could. The teachers are amazing - they each bring their passion for dance and connect to the students in meaningful ways. This has been more apparent than ever during COVID-19, when the studio has stayed ahead of public health social distancing requirements, while continuing to engage dancers with both virtual classes and positive, curated online connections for the older girls on Instagram to maintain the relationships they treasure and missed these last few months. I've heard parents at other studios complain about administration - IR Dance makes scheduling and keeping up with commitments easy (whether your dancer is in one class a week or 10). Best of all, they offer high calibre dance at all different levels, while focusing not only on developing dancers but also on developing a community that values teamwork, trust and empathy - and fosters this in the young dancers. It really feels like a family . . . We love IR Dance!"

"My daughter has been dancing at Innovative Rhythm since she was 4 years old and is now turning 11 in 3 months! This dance studio has been an incredible experience for her and she has grown up with a love of dance as a result. Innovative Rhythm Dance Studios not only teaches kids a love of dance but encourages confidence, kindness, respect for others, and leadership. The staff at Innovative Rhythm will have your child's best interest at heart and we have incredible respect for the way they teach dance and communicate with our child. My daughter started with less than one hour a week and now dances here six hours a week and would be there for six hours more if we would let her! In addition to their awesome dance classes, my daughter has attended summer dance camp here and it is always the highlight of her summer! You won't find a more happy and family friendly dance studio in the entire GTA....we highly recommend!"

"Our two daughters have danced with Innovative Rhythm for over 10 years. They started at a recreational level and moved into the competitive program. I have always maintained that dance is an excellent activity for girls giving them body awareness, confidence, musicality and creative expression. IRDS provides excellent instruction and provides ample opportunities to explore and advance a child’s dance discipline. They have extensive programs and provide the freedom for girls and boys to follow their curiosity and passion. But more importantly they foster a tremendous community of support. The friendships our daughters have developed are life long. And more importantly the management team are extremely sensitive to and aware of the many challenges girls encounter as they go through their teens . . . I highly recommend this studio for parents who want a “whole-child” approach to dance and personal development. We will be fans forever and know that the intangible lessons learned here will carry our girls forward through life."
