Open to both boys and girls, instructed by Emily Beelen, this recreational dance
program will offer fun and fitness in an informal, recreational setting. Proper
technique will be taught. There will be no exams or competitions. The last
class will have an opportunity for parents to view their young dancer’s
achievements. Classes are held upstairs in the Portland Community Hall.
Dancers need not have traditional dance shoes, but should wear running shoes or
be prepared to dance in bare feet. Dancers should wear comfortable clothing and
bring a water bottle.
Parents are encouraged to drop your children off 5 minutes prior to the start of
their class and pick them up at the exact time class ends. Parents may wait in
the downstairs portion of the community hall if they so desire. Participants may
be asked to purchase a Rideau Lakes Dance shirt prior to their last class to be
worn for the “recital”.
To register your child please fill out the
registration form and deliver it or mail it along with the appropriate
registration fees to the Township Offices by April 10th.
Registrations received after the deadline will be put onto a waiting list.
These classes fill up quickly. After registering, you may receive a call from
our instructor with an alternative option for class times. Participants
will have an opportunity to showcase their techniques at the end of the program
to family and friends.
