About Us

Why Walk

When you can Dance

Established in 2000, Star Dance Academy has quickly become a leader in dance education in Scarborough.  The studio provides dance training opportunities to dancers of all ages and abilities.

At Star Dance Academy, we pride ourselves on being a welcoming, family-friendly environment that aims to enrich the lives of children – through helping them develop confidence, teamwork, discipline, creativity, and much more. From our three-year old Twinkle Toes, to our recreational students, to our seasoned Competitive dancers, all students are treated like part of the Star Dance Academy family and are provided equal opportunities to learn and grow as dancers.

We offer a multitude of classes in both our Recreational and Competition programs. Our studio trains students in Royal Academy of Dance and British Association of Teachers of Dancing syllabus.

Classes offered: Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Acro, Tap, Lyrical, and Hip Hop. Learn more about our classes and programs here. We also offer an Assistant Teacher program where selected students can earn community service hours for their high school diplomas.
