Holiday Break

Only twelve more days of classes until we all enjoy our three-week holiday break. The last day of classes is Saturday, December 11th, and all classes resume on Sunday, January 2nd. We wish all our dance families a holiday full of rest and relaxation, and we look forward to a wonderful year ahead.

Academic Year – Term 2 Enrollment

If you/your dancer is currently enrolled in 1st term (Sept-Dec) they are automatically enrolled for 2nd term (Jan-June) so no one loses their spot in our academic year programming, unless a family has emailed to let us know they aren’t continuing. Second term tuition fees were posted to family accounts early in November and are due by Sunday, December 5th, after which the system will automatically apply a $20 late fee. Payments can be made through the parent portal with a credit card, or by e-transfer sent to the dance school’s email address (

Hyde Park Santa Claus Parade

Congratulations to the 39 dancers who danced their way across Gainsborough Road in the Hyde Park Santa Claus Parade on Saturday morning. We were so proud to have each of you represent our school so well. Missed the parade? Rogers will air the parade this Saturday, December 4th.

Covid-19 Precautions

We confirm that the following Covid-19 related precautions will continue to be followed at NLDC, and we commit to keeping you informed as guidelines change moving forward:

  1. Active screening: complete your Covid-19 screening form online in advance for anyone planning to enter our facility each day:
  2. Line up no more than 5 minutes in advance of your class & please do not block the entrances of neighbouring businesses or park in their dedicated parking spots. Please use the lines on the ground to stay 6’ apart when queuing. If the front parking lot is full, you are welcome to use any of the 60+ spots at the rear of the building.
  3. Please sanitize your hands coming in and out of the facility.
  4. Anyone ages 2+ must wear a mask to enter & exit the facility.
  5. Anyone ages 12+ entering the facility needs to show proof of vaccination and ID. An individual is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after their second shot.
  6. Our enhanced cleaning routines will stay in place for the foreseeable future.

Buns are Best & Uniforms

A friendly reminder that all ballet & acro students should wear a proper, ‘dancers bun’ to their classes, unless their haircut is very short. No idea what a dancer’s bun is? Check out this great how-to video: Wearing your hair in a bun ensures that students can concentrate on what is most important in class – learning and developing a love for dance! You can purchase a bun kit for $5.00 at the desk if you need supplies.

All children in our Dance Development to Level 12 classes should also be wearing their uniform to class each week. The two dancewear stores that generally keep our uniform in stock are Dancewear Plus and Pointe & Pick.

Class Spotlight – PBT

Progressing Ballet Technique is a program to help students advance by training muscle memory. PBT focuses on core stability, weight placement and alignment. Add this class to your dancer’s January schedule and see the difference it makes in their other dance classes! Classes available for ages 8 to adult.
