Our Story

This is how we became “The School”, our philosophy and ethos.

Welcome to The School

As dance and theatre instructors we have over 20 years experience helping kids achieve their creative goals. We’ve been professional dancers, professional actors, directors, choreographers and other very exciting things that we were wildly talented at!

Then we became parents.

And that gig? Let’s just say we’re still working on it!

Children (ours and yours) are the reason why we craved something more.

Something that would allow children to train at a facility that would nurture our kids and respect our clients and families the way we do at home everyday.

We wanted a school where children’s whole development and needs were met.

Thus we decided to open our ideal school. The School – Creative Arts Education.

Welcome to our school. We promise to inspire, nurture and develop your child’s creativity and artistic skills and to provide free wifi, coffee and a place to grown up conversation with other families while we’re at it!

Our Philosophy

At the School we believe that it is our responsibility to present the arts to your child in a way that nurtures their whole selves.

  • We believe that participation in arts programs develops children’s motivation, self confidence, improves critical thinking skills, provides fine and gross motor skill mastery and will provide children with the tools they need to lead a happy, confident life well beyond the school years.
  • We believe in giving back to our community through performance opportunities and neighbourhood events
  • We believe that following an industry trusted syllabus allows students and parents to track progress and to advance to post secondary education if desired.
  • We believe that children should be “brought to the arts” in a fun, engaging and nurturing manner
