Programs

RECREATIONAL

IDC’s recreational program offers students a fun, engaging dance environment where they will improve their skills and grow in confidence.  Balancing discipline and fun with a focus on performance, our recreational dancers have the opportunity to be inspired every week in their class. Weekly classes provide an outlet for students to explore their creativity, musicality, rhythm, as well as many other physical skills.

Our students in this program focus primarily on the development of skills, with one year end performance in our recital (Covid-permitting).  

The recreational program is a great choice for students who may be involved in other activities and want to simply learn the fundamentals of dance without any other outside commitment.  Recreational students may take as many classes per week as they’d like, and discounts are available for student’s who take 3 or more classes/week.

PRE-COMPANY

The pre-company program is a stepping stone for students aged 9-13yrs, who are interetsed in moving from recreational dancing to the full company program. This program is ONLY available to students who are new to competitive dance, or have limited training in the competitive setting.

Most students will spend at least two seasons in pre-competitive before moving to the full company program. Directors will discuss with the students and parents in the program to update them of their progress.

Students interested in joining the Pre-Company program are required to audition. The audition process is an open jazz class where dancers will showcase their skills and work ethic. Dancers do not need to prepare anything for the audition class. Auditions happen annually and current Company students must attend so directors can make appropraite assessments of their growth.

Pre Company students dance a mandatory 4 hours a week in ballet technique, jazz technique, tap/stage technique and a jazz choreography class. Students in Pre-Company are encouraged to take additional classes, which are offered at a discounted rate.  

Pre-Company will compete one choreographed dance at two local competitions in the Lower Mainland.

All levels of our Company dancers are welcome to take part in any additional performance opportunities, like parades, finales, productions and are encouraged to do so.

COMPANY

The full company program is for students aged 12-18yrs who are ready for an elite level of dancing where students are challenged in every style of dance, and to hone their performance skills.

Acceptance to the Company program is decided by the Directors, and takes into account the student’s overall technical abilities. Students within the Company will be placed in appropriate classes for their technique level – this means that the age/grade of each dancers is less of a factor than their abilities. 

Students interested in joining the Company program are required to audition. The audition process is an open jazz class where dancers will showcase their skills and work ethic.
