Kats Dance Centre & Performing Arts - Where you learn to dance and join a family!

At KDCPA we take our roles as mentors and teachers in your child's life very seriously. It is our objective to inspire a passion for the art of dance in every child who passes through our doors. In the process, we strive to set the right example and help your child (and you) create memories that will last a lifetime.

For 35 years KDCPA has been committed to providing dance and performing arts classes to enhance the overall development of a child. We provide a safe and child-centered environment to encourage, and help our students explore the art of dance with qualified, nurturing teachers and staff.

We believe that dance and the performing arts promote creativity, self-confidence, focus, empowerment, healthy mind & body, positive self image, improves coordination skills, and give children the freedom to express themselves through movement.

KDCPA is very family oriented and is not a competitive dance studio. We start our students as young as 21 months old and continue up through adults. We have several performances throughout the year for our students to enjoy. We travel to Walt Disney to perform, we have holiday celebrations, family functions, fundraisers and more to enjoy.

Students begin friendships here that have lasted the test of time. It is a positive place for both students and parents. Our classes are kept small, and our younger classes have 1 teacher and 2 or more assistants in each class. Parents can view the class in progress while sitting in our waiting room from our TV monitor. This helps to alleviate the anxiety of separation.

We would love for you to try us on for size before registering and paying any fees! You are welcome to come in and take a FREE class, meet the staff, see the studio and asks questions! We want to be sure we are the right studio for you before registering.

We offer classes in: Jazz, Pop Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Pointe, Lyrical, Hip-Hop, Hippity Hop, Acrobatics, Preschool, Tiny-Tots, Tiny Tumblers, Theatre & Adult Zumba, Tap, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Ballet
