Welcome to Extrava Danse Academy
The Hélène Tassie School of Dance and later Académie Extrava Danse have been a part of the community of Rockland for over 35 years. Dance is a complex and technically challenging art form. Sending your child to a qualified teacher is important to their health and safety. Our bilingual teachers are proud to offer professional and recreational dance and fitness training from pre-school age through to adults, including creative movement class for 3 ½ to 4 ½ year olds. Extrava Danse has a positive and welcoming environment with a qualified team of instructors that challenge and motivate each student.
Extrava Danse is a recognized Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers (A.D.A.P.T.) school and a registered Royal Academy of Dance (R.A.D.) school. Our priority is to instill proper dance technique while developing each student’s own sense of discipline and artistic expression. Through a graded syllabus students are encouraged to achieve their goals and gain confidence and poise. Our syllabus has been carefully developed to ensure a steady progression from one level to the next.
The professional studio boasts sprung dance floors, mirrors, and a Boutique for all your dance and fitness needs. The fall term begins each September and signifies the start of the dance year. The winter term begins each January. This term involves the final preparation for the year end recital. New students are accepted at this time. Instructors can evaluate new students for proper placement in appropriate class level.
We also offer summer programs for all ages; including day camps for ages 4 ½ to 12 as well as evening classes.
