Ecole de danse Powell School of Dance Inc. is a multi-disciplined dance school, offering programs to children, teens, and adults at the recreational and competitive level. Classes are also offered to children with special needs in the form of dance therapy. Ecole de danse Powell School of Dance Inc. also has a Demonstrator Program for a select group of our dancers to assist in the dance classroom on a weekly basis, while contributing to their required community hours. In the Dance Therapy Program, the Demonstrators are assigned to shadow a special ballerina from arrival, during the class, and until dismissal to their parents.
Ecole de danse Powell School of Dance Inc. presents a year-end production at Aultsville Theatre in Cornwall that is second to none in the region of Eastern Ontario! Every dancer has the opportunity to “live the dream’’ by performing on a professional stage, in costume and before a live audience. “Recital Weekend’’, as it is affectionately referred to by its dancers, has raised the bar for itself consistently since its inception in 2004.
Each year, a theme is chosen, and the “big reveal’’ is made during Demonstration, the weeks leading up to the Christmas break. Music, choreography and costume choices are disclosed to dancers and the excitement begins to rise as the months race by to mid-June. From Costume Day, to Photo Day, to the day that tickets go on sale; each occasion brings the dancer closer to the magic and whimsy of “Recital Weekend”, and the sweet fulfillment of their desire to be a star! And the dream that each dancer dares to dream really does come true!!
Ecole de danse Powell School of Dance Inc...where stars are born!
