Creating strong dancers and confident people starts in the classroom.

All dancers must be respectful to teachers, parents, fellow dancers and their studio home. Creating a positive environment is essential to the growth of young artists. Dancers must be properly dressed, on time for class and have a good work ethic. 
Your child will be assessed and placed with the CDU faculty feels they will benefit most. If you have any questions, please contact us at (905) 857-5444 or send us an email at office@canadiandanceunit.com
