About Us


Ottawa’s Top Dance School

2019 & 2020

Who We Are

Elite Dance Studio first opened its doors over 53 years ago in Kanata, Ontario. We offer excellent training to dancers of all abilities, including students dancing for recreational enjoyment and those who later want to join our competitive program. All three level of programs are designed in the best interest of the child, and their goals in and out of a classroom setting.

We pride ourselves on encouraging students to be the most well-rounded dancers they can be. We offer several styles to ensure dancers are not limited, but rather have the tools necessary to pursue a career in dance, no matter the avenue. Our teachers train students with the necessary tools to be successful after their time in the studio, whether or not they decide to pursue dance professionally.

Our Studio

Our 3 air-conditioned studios have raised, sprung Rosco floors for safety and comfort. Our class sizes are limited, offering each student the best individual attention.

“My staff and I are very passionate and dedicated to teaching our students to the highest quality of dance. The teachers are all experienced and highly qualified dance instructors. We feel it’s very important to have a healthy and positive teaching environment and we strive to create fun and energetic classes. We make it our goal to guide our students to their full potential and focus on encouraging them to accomplish their goals, as an individual and team.”
