Somerville Dance Academy provides professionally trained faculty, who strive to develop an appreciation and a love of dance in our students. Our facilities include 3 spacious and bright studios, sprung hardwood floors, ample parking and closed-circuit television for parents to watch from the waiting area. SDA is proud to have been providing dance training in Richmond Hill for 25 years.
SDA offers technique-based classes in several disciplines – acro, ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, jazz, musical theatre, tap and tumbling. Students have the option to participate in examinations. All recreational classes participate in our annual recital, which support SickKids Foundation. SDA offers a competitive program for students who desire a more intense dance experience.
At SDA, every dancer has a place to express themselves. Our dancers consider the studio to be a "home away from home", and form lifelong friendships with their peers. In addition to the benefits of healthy physical activity, our dancers improve their posture, coordination and core strength. Our dancers develop discipline in our classes and develop self-confidence from performing on stage – SDA Alumni have gone on to be successful in many different careers paths.
