Classes

Chelsea Dance offers adult classes as well as child-centered classes where children are viewed as active participants who are strong, capable and can contribute based on their own experiences. Every child is celebrated for their own unique way of being in the world and are encouraged to discover their movement potential through inquiry, curiosity and play. Adult dancers with little or no experience are highly encouraged to join in the fun.

We offer classes for all ages to enjoy the art of dance in both Chelsea, Quebec and starting in the Spring, in Wakefield, Quebec as well!
