We are proud to be Kingston’s only non-profit, charitable dance school. In 1967, a community ballet association was formed to provide high-quality instruction to a small group of classical ballet students who were seeking excellence in technical training. In the past 45 years, the Kingston School of Dance has grown to be a vibrant, enthusiastic organization dedicated to enriching the community through dance. While we continue to provide the highest standard of classical ballet training, we have also added a wide variety of dance genres for students, supporters, and spectators to experience. From classical forms such as ballet, jazz, and tap, to world beat, hip-hop, contemporary and Acro, we have it all at KSD. We strive to provide affordable and accessible programming to our dancers. We cultivate a nurturing environment where students can discover their unique, and innate ability to dance.
Dancers ranging from 3 to 80 years of age experience a continually exciting and current curriculum.
Whether a student’s goal is to become a professional dancer, find an enjoyable recreational outlet, or improve fitness, our instructors are dedicated to their individual development. We provide sound technical training while encouraging fun and creative exploration. The Kingston School of Dance offers classes for all ages, including adult classes: Ballet, Modern, Latin Jazz, and World Beat. Lunch hour drop-in classes have become popular at our downtown studio. For many of the dancers, it’s their hour to shine and think of little else than moving to the music. Our dance school recognizes that each dancer is unique. We are proud to be an inclusive organization that welcomes students with exceptionalities. We believe that the ability to dance has no limitations.
