October Studio Spotlight: Fascination Dance Studio

Fascination Dance Studio

Fascination Dance Studio
first began in 1985 with 6 dancers in a church hall. Over the last 27 years the studio has grown into a very diverse family and community-oriented studio. Their philosophy? You are never too old to dance!

The studio offers classes in Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Modern, Lyrical, Acro, Musical Theatre, Hip hop and Ballroom for our 200+ dancers as young as three years old to the community of Thorold, ON.

The majority of Fascination Dance Studio's staff has been together for over 15 years- having danced together before beginning their teaching careers. They are not only talented dance instructors, but also professionals, Elementary School Teachers, Librarians, Educational Assistants- their talents are endless!

Our mission statement is as follows: We stress quality dance training for optimal growth and fitness of our students. We nurture self-expression and the joy of movement through the art. We instill the philosophy that dance talent is a gift to be shared for the purpose of bringing about change in others mentally, spiritually and emotionally.

So far, this dance season has started out with a flourish having recently participated in the Niagara Wine Festival Grande Parade along with local charitable organizations “Grounds of Hope” and “Wells of Hope”. Fascination Dance Studio's dynamic dance team and the ‘Hope’ team won the prestigious Founders Cup Award.

The studio will also be participating in the local community‘s annual Santa Claus Parade while the competitive students are gearing up for the competitive season beginning in April 2013.

Last year brought Fascination Dance Studio a wide range of awards and acknowledgments from the various competitions the studio attended. Choreography awards, Adjudicators Choice, Overall High Scores as well as the Brad Dyer Memorial Award (given to one studio who exemplified the characteristics of the late Brad Dyer- passion for the arts, dedication, and sportsmanship). Rounding out the year, the studio put on a community performance for the Feast of St. Anthony.

The years have brought Fascination Dance Studio a variety of awards, memories and triumphs. In 2001 and 2003 the studio preformed the musicals ‘Oz’ and ‘Wonderland’ which raised a total of $25,000.00 for the Breast Cancer Research and Education Fund and The Niagara Regional Cancer Centre. This was done on behalf of Fascination Dance Studio's own studio angel, Jo DiMaurizio. It is with great honour and pride that the studio continues to have the opportunity to teach dance in its community.
