Join us for recreational classes!

We know that competitions aren’t for everyone. That’s why we’re proud to offer non-competitive classes for dancers of all ages.

Our recreational dancers receive dedicated instruction with a focus on fun, and their moment to take centre stage at our annual recital. For those interested in a little more, we also give our students the option of participating in a local competition.

Whether you’re trying dance for the first time, or you just want to enjoy classes without the time commitment of a competition team, you’ll find a home at Fay’s.

Join us for our 60th Anniversary dance season – early registration for new and current students is Monday, June 19th and Wednesday, June 21 between 5 and 6:30pm at the studio (222 Leith Street).

Looking for more information? Give us a call at 622-7879, find us on Facebook @FayGleesonDanceCentre or email
