“Jolanta is an amazing adult ballet instructor. I completed up to RAD Advanced 1 and wanted to continue dancing recreationally. The Beg/Int ballet class is perfect for beginners and more advanced dancers because many exercises have variations (on rise, in coup de pied, or passé). Your choice, it’s your ballet class.”
“I started dancing when I was 4 and continued all the way through high school. Afterwards I took some lessons in Toronto. When I moved to Hamilton I had to let go of my dancing because I couldn’t commit to working full time and commuting for dance classes. I decided to enrol my daughter and she has been enjoying her lessons very much. I really appreciate the no nonsense approach to hair and uniform expectations but also the warm and encouraging environment created for the kids to learn and express themselves. Watching my daughter go to class each week inspired me to look into classes for myself. I was a little concerned that I might be in over my head as the last class I took was around 12 years ago! Jolanta has created such a warm and welcoming atmosphere that all my concerns dissolved immediately. I enjoyed the classes so much that I immediately committed to taking more. Jolanta is incredibly supportive and extremely knowledgeable. I got the challenge I was looking for without feeling lost or too old to be there! I would highly recommend adult and children’s classes at CNADE!”
“Since they specialize in teaching adults, I feel like I get more out of the classes. The instructor comments on your form, and offers options depending on your skill level.”
“I am so happy that there is a place to take ballet and other dance classes in Hamilton with a drop-in schedule. Jolanta’s teaching technique is warm and caring with emphasis on progressing without injury. She welcomes all levels and there is a class for everyone here from beginning to advanced. Plus, the camaraderie of the students really makes this a fun place to be. This has become my new dance home in “the Hammer”.”
“I was looking for something that would I could do outside of working full time and found CNADE. There is a great sense of community among everyone there! I thoroughly enjoy and look forward to every class. Its a great way to get outside of your comfort zone and try something new and challenging! Jolanta is a great teacher! She explains everything thoroughly so you don’t feel lost. Great people, clean and cozy environment, amazing teacher! Very happy with the outcome.”
“I never thought that at my age I could learn ballet, but it is possible yet. Step by step I am advancing and I feel happy with my progress. Not only I have learned technique, but also with the variety of classes as stretching, jazz, contemporary and so on, my physical condition has improved. There are fantastic people and teachers that bring confidence and make the classes amazing. Thanks Jolanta for your professionalism!”
“I’ve been searching for an adult ballet class in Hamilton for ages! When I saw this studio had an introductory offer for only $9.99 for one month of unlimited classes I was sold. The classes are so much fun; the instructor is clearly passionate about what she does and has a great positive energy. She explains exercises thoroughly in a way that all levels of dancers can understand and apply to their dancing. I highly recommend this studio to all levels of dancers.”
“I’ve loved every class at CNADE! Jolanta brings a fun energy to her choreography and the format of the classes are exactly what I’ve been looking for. I’ve danced for most of my life but stopped during school and work so I was looking for something that’d be fun but also challenging – and that’s exactly what CNADE offers! The drop in format of classes is super convenient too – it’s really flexible if you have a busy work or school schedule!”
“I’ve NEVER taken a dance class in my life. I wanted a new challenge in 2018 and love to dance freely. I’ve tried ballet, hip hop, jazz, Latin, broadway and more at this amazing dance studio. Jolanta is a very good, fun instructor who gives lots of support. Highly recommend anyone who loves dance to come here!!! Very reasonable pricing as well.”
“I’ve always loved to dance and wanted to pursue dance lessons but never had the time with life being so busy. Since I’m taking a year off work to finally relax and not be so busy, I thought this would be the perfect time to take dance lessons. I’ve only gone twice and I’ve been to about four classes and so far I’m hooked. I absolutely love the energy of the instructor. She is fabulous and gets everyone engaged. She is patient and goes through the steps several times to make sure everyone knows what they’re doing. The people there are super friendly and I’m very excited about the next classes that I will be attending. I’m already ready to rehearse for the end of the year performance!!! It seems like it is a family of people who love to dance and I recognized this in just a short time that I have attended. I would highly recommend trying and exploring the freedom of dance at this Academy, you will not be disappointed.
“Very impressed by Jolanta and her open arms approach to all rusty dancers like me, beginner dancers and teachers from other studios looking for a collaborative dancing and learning environment. Don’t be shy, sign up for a super reasonably priced class today! No need for long term commitment either, sign up for the classes you want when you want.”
“I have never took a dance lesson in my life prior to my lessons at Canada’s National Academy of Dance Education. Since my first ballet lesson, I have been hooked and look forward to my lessons every week! Jolanta is great at teaching classes to people of all skill abilities, and as a beginner I do not feel overwhelmed! I would recommend Canada’s National Academy of Dance Education to anyone looking for dance lessons.”
“I have loved dancing with CNADE! From my first class I have felt completely comfortable. Jolanta is an amazing instructor. She is incredibly knowledgeable, and I love the way she is very descriptive in her instructions, it makes everything much easier to understand!”
“Thrilled will the personal lessons I received from Jolanta who took me in at the last moment in preparation for my talent portion at Mrs Universe Classic 2018 held in Sofia, Bulgaria. Thank you Thank you.
I’m looking forward to continue dance class starting with Beg Ballet : )”
“I’ve always been intrigued by dance and started Ballroom and Latin dancing 4 years ago. I enjoyed it but I later realized that there was something else I really wanted to try– Ballet! As a 2018 goal I said I wanted to learn ballet and came across CNADE. From the initial inquiry and meeting, Jolanta was very kind, helpful, and welcoming! I have never done Ballet, and was very nervous but Jolanta makes the lesson fun and informative. Now I find myself trying out different dances like Beginner Broadway, and Dance ST2. Another nice thing about it is the fact that it is affordable! Definitely would recommend CNADE!!”
“Exceeded my expectations! I really enjoyed the classes and look forward to the weekend!!”
“Saturday morning classes were awesome! I am so glad I found you :)”

“Thanks, it was great! See you again soon.”
“#3 for sure!

I will definitely recommend you to others. You are a very good teacher. :)”

“I just registered for many many classes. I can’t believe the amazing opportunity this is for dancers and dance educators here. I am so excited about what you are doing. Honestly, I feel like I am ripping you off, this is such a good deal. I am inexpressible grateful… as someone who wants to get back into dancing shape, and can’t afford the time or money to travel back and forth to Toronto or Guelph. I can not wait to meet you and hug you in person for doing this. I am telling EVERYONE I know.”
“I love the adult dance classes! It has helped me work on my technique and has been a fun and rewarding source of exercise. Jolanta is a wonderful instructor!”
“The adult dance classes were a great way to get active and enjoy dance with such an open community. Jolanta made the classes enjoyable for everyone and it was a great way to brush up on my technique after a couple of years of being out of a formal dance setting. Whether you are new to dance or looking to get back into it- this is the program for you!”
“I haven’t had the opportunity to take a ballet class in many years. Taking the online ballet class with CNADE was amazing! It gave me a bit of a challenge and a workout, all while bringing back my joy of ballet! If you ever have the opportunity to take their classes, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks for giving me a chance take a class that is informative and enjoyable!”

Originally a combination of classical, modern, and jazz, this style truly incorporates elements from many styles.
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.
A spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practiced for health and relaxation.

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.
This class begins with 30 intensive INT warm-up followed by a 30 min of choreo.
