November Studio Spotlight: Ovation! Performing Arts School

Ovation Performing Arts

Based in Richmond Hill, ON, all the dance programs come with a twist! Unlike most dance studios, Ovation! doesn’t participate in dance competitions. Instead, students participate in public performances -- often!

Ovation!’s goal is to help students become life-long learners, practitioners, and appreciators of the performing arts, which in turn infuses their lives with imagination, artistry, and creativity. Their interdisciplinary approach to dance education includes technique, critical analysis, choreography, and performance. Classes include tap, ballet, jazz and musical theatre. 

On tap for the academy, several dancers are going on tour in December with MOTUS O dance theatre, heading to Welland, ON to perform with the professional company in their production of “A Christmas Carol”.

In addition to the annual Winter Showcase (Jan 13th) and year-end variety show called Get STAGEstruck! (May 22nd), Ovation! is participating in Onstage Production’s “Sounds of Christmas” show at the Markham Theatre in December. Students will be working with over 50 adult performers, including a 20-piece orchestra. This kind of collaboration allows Ovation!'s students to work in a variety of settings with many performance styles and requirements.

In February of 2013, the academy is launching yoga and flamenco classes. These kinds of movement disciplines will be integrated into the dance program – doing so will continue to develop focus, breath control, showmanship, and attitude!
