Welcome to the Wynyard School of Dance. The Wynyard School of Dance has empowered young people through their love of dance for decades. The School was founded over 50 years ago by a group of parents who wanted their children and other Wynyard youngsters to experience training in dance. We continue to be a parent led organization and strive to foster a safe environment and inclusive community where everyone feels welcome. We have a strong commitment to community and create a sense of pride within each individual dancer.
Our School proudly offers qualified instruction in a wide range of dance disciplines including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, musical theatre, modern, acro, pointe and hip hop. Our class offerings are available to students ages three and up. Our season operates from September to May with a full-time winter program. We attend several competitions each year and advancement/placement of students may be affected by skill level.

Note: Student placement will be at the discretion of the instructor. If your child starts dance classes at an older age or skips one or more sessions of dance, it may not be possible to place them in a class with students of their own age, especially if they have not developed the skill necessary to keep up with the children at their own age level. In certain instances, a child may be able to ‘catch up’ with students if they attend multi-level classes or seek private lessons with an older student or instructor, for example.
