Harwood-Watson instructs dancers starting at 4 years old in Creative Movement. When ready (around 6 years old), students begin Primary Ballet. We offer a variety of classes options to cultivate technique and diversify abilities. If a dancer wishes for guidance to develop professionally our director (Eliza Watson) excels at crafting the necessary schedule. HWDS also offers a children's performing dance company, "The Performers," for the students who want to perform throughout the dance year (by audition only).
For our August to June dance year, you are welcome to have your dancer(s) try out a class before registering. Ballet classes require ballet attire including hair in a ballet bun. Ballet level placement fee is $20 if above Primary 2. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us: (407) 228-0005 or (321) 972-2975 or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
