Founded in 2004 by Jenie Gospodinova, our school is the largest ballet school in Notre - Dame - de - Graĉe. We teach thousands of students over the years while honoring the tradition of classical ballet.

 

Our mission is to celebrate the gift of every day. We teach the children

about life through ballet. Discipline, respect, joy, commitment, and

confidence are our main lessons!

     

       * All levels and ages:

       * Groups for ages 3 and up

       * Beginners, intermediates and advanced classes

       * Adults classes

       * Points dance class

       * End of the session big show for all the students 

       * Bilingual classes

       * Vaganova method of teaching

 
 

 

 

We believe that perfection is imperfection. We believe that everyone is different. We are true en the midst of pop culture. We create magic!

Pre-ballet years 3–5 

As the founder of Jenie’s Dance School, I wanted to start a school where kids could foster their passion for dance and ballet. 

I hope that Jenie’s Dance School is a huge part of the growing up of the little dancers, and I realize that they are learning so much more than ballet. They are learning so much about LIFE within the classroom walls. I hope they are gaining poise and confidence, and they are learning how to be JOYFUL and RESPECTFUL to themselves and others.

I know Jenie’s Dance School is a very special place: the feeling of family, tradition and joy is felt everywhere.

At Jenie’s Dance School we celebrate the gift of every day. We stay positive in our teaching and still teach excellent body alignment and technique, and discipline within both.

It is my continued goal as director and owner of the school to continue to inspire and teach excellence in the classroom, as well as create a safe environment to grow and learn. It’s our HOME away from HOME.

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Jenie’s Dance School.

The Legacy continues…
