Adult Dance Classes Hamilton

A welcoming, comfortable & judgement free environment for Adult dancers of all ages, levels & abilities.

NEW LOCATION: MOHAWK COLLEGE HAMILTON - BIGGER, BETTER & STILL THE BEST!

 

5 REASONS WHY WE ARE THE BEST!

 

DON’T TAKE ADULT DANCE CLASSES @ A KIDS DANCE STUDIO: At CNADE we specialize in Adult Dance. Our programs have been specially designed to attract, nurture, motivate and inspire the adult dancer and student.

MOST DANCE STUDIO INSTRUCTORS ONLY HAVE EXPERIENCE TEACHING KIDS: Unlike most Dance Instructors at a Kids Dance Studio who are trained to teach children, our experience, training and education superceeds the quality of instruction offered by Kids Dance Studios. 

AN ADULT SPACE FOR ADULT DANCERS: Why change in a changeroom that is designed for children? Why wait in a waiting room packed with parents waiting for their little ones to come out of class? We are proud of our professional and mature space designed for Adults and Adult Classes/Instruction.

THIS IS WHAT WE DO: Training and teaching Adults is our speciality. From our Dance Teacher Training Program to our Adult Dance Classes and more, our programming specializes in serving the Adult Dance community. 

YOU ARE NOT AN AFTER THOUGHT: Most studios throw in an Adult Dance Program to fill their Dance Class Schedule later in the evening, and only offer Adult Classes for additional revenue. At CNADE you are NOT an afterthought, you are our buisness, and everything we do, is for you the Adult Dancer, from training, to tools, to space, to instruction.

Ballet

The foundation for all other forms of Dance, Ballet combines strength and grace to demonstrate exceptional athleticism with the appearance of effortlessness.  The elements of strength, balance and grace combined, make this a dance form that provides a total body and mind experience. First time participants can wear socks or bare feet, but are encouraged to wear ballet shoes for any classes that follow. Ballet shoes can be professionally fitted and purchased at the studio.

Jazz

A perfect compliment to Ballet that stylizes the technique and strength developed in Ballet.  This dance form is often performed to contemporary music.  Experience the joy of bringing the music to life with the body. Participants can dance in bare feet, or wear specially designed shoes for jazz available for purchase at the studio.

Dance ST2 (Stretch, Tone, Technique)

Looking for a Dance fitness class or looking to improve your technique, tone your muscles and increase your range of motion, then this Dance fitness class is for you.  Most of the class takes place on the floor, allowing you to focus on specific muscle groups with low impact exercises designed to engage new muscle groups not often the focus of most exercise programs. A YOGA MAT & RESISTANCE BAND is required for this class. Both can be purchased or rented at the studio.

Dance Therapy

Are you a busy entrepreneur, parent, employee that is constantly rushing around, taking little time to breath let alone eat and sleep?  Do you feel the negative effects of this lifestyle in your mental and physical wellness?  Do you or have you ever suffered from Anxiety or Depression? Do you find the breath and concentration on the mind/body connection in Yoga beneficial to your overall Mental and Physical wellness, then our Dance Therapy class is for you.  This class uses the creative/choreographic process as the foundation of its methodology.  We take you on an artistic journey where you will learn how the relaxation of the mind can promote creativity and self expression without saying a word.  The freedom of the body and mind during this class, promotes and healthy and more positive mind body connection often absent in our daily practice. Dress comfortably.

Barre

Barre fitness is a fun and high energy workout that is low-impact and gentle on your joints. In Barre we use strengthening and stretching techniques adopted from Ballet, combined with the mindfulness and meditative practice of Yoga in order to create long, lean muscles while improving strength and flexibility. Participants can wear socks or bare feet for the class however BALLET SHOES are recommended. Ballet shoes can be professionally fitted and purchased at the studio.  

Floor Barre

Floor Barre uses the force of gravity on our bodies in a horizontal position to strength, stretch and tone the body.  Floor barre combines elements from Pilates, Yoga & Dance to give you a total body workout without the high intensity and impact of other group fitness classes. Although a Yoga Mat is not typically used in this class participants can choose to bring their own mat or purchase/rent one at the studio. This class requires a RESISTANCE BAND which is also available to purchase or rent at the studio.

Country Line Dancing

A line dance is a choreographed dance with a repeated sequence of steps in which a group of people dance in one or more lines or rows, all facing either each other or in the same direction, and executing the steps at the same time. In our Line Dance class we listen to good ol’ Country Music, a combination of hits from the past and present.  The pace is slow as we break down each step and sequence and transitions from slow-moderate as we progress through the year. Whether your new to line dance or seasoned, you’ll have a blast!

Latin DanceFit

Latin Dance is an umbrella term for a variety of dance with Latin origin some of which include salsa, mambo, merengue, rumba, bachata, bomba and tango.  Our Latin DanceFit class combines elements from all of the popular Latin styles with an element of cardio, for a fun and high-energy workout.

Stretching (If you love YOGA you'll love this more!)

An essential part of any pre- or post-workout. The entire 30 minutes is dedicated to stretching and relaxation. You will be lead through some familiar stretches and some new stretches that dancers use in their training. A must take class for all of our dancers! This class requires participants to have a RESISTANCE BAND & YOGA MAY which can be rented or purchased at the studio.

Urban Jazz

This class merges the technicality of jazz with the style and music of contemporary Hip Hop music.

Broadway Jazz

This style of Jazz evolved on Broadway. This movements in this class are simple and basic. A perfect introduction into this form of Theatre Jazz.

Contemporary Modern

Originally a combination of classical, modern, and jazz, this style truly incorporates elements from many styles.

Posture Lab

There’s one thing dancers have…and that’s great posture!  Some cases of lower back and neck pain are due to poor posture. Our understanding of the human body and how it reacts during loco-motor and non-locomotor movements is unique in that most of us have trained as dancers since the age of 3.  This gives us a unique perspective and understanding of the human body unlike any other profession. Our 1/2 hour posture lab class not only includes an analysis of posture related issues/concerns, but will walk you through a series of exercises to help you maintain better alignment and increase range of motion.

Contemporary Lyrical

Lyrical dance is a style of dance created by merging ballet, jazz and contemporary dance techniques. Lyrical dancing is performed to music with lyrics to inspire movements to express strong emotions the choreographer feels from the lyrics in the chosen song.  Because lyrical dancing focuses on the expression of strong emotion, the style concentrates more on individual approach and expressiveness than the precision of the dancer’s movements. The emergent lyrical style has a relatively recent history and a genesis based on the coming together of ballet with rock/folk/pop/alternative music and a variety of jazz dance styles and modern dance.
