Ballet, Modern and Tap Dance Classes at Mi-Cher Dance Academy
Mi-Cher Dance Academy offers ballet, modern, and tap dance classes in South Surrey. We began as a ballet school, and believe a strong foundation in ballet is imperative. Our modern and tap programs supplement the dancers ballet training and provides variety and alternative movements to expand their dance experience. We look forward to growing both our modern and tap programs this fall.
We offer exams with both the Royal Academy of Dance (Ballet) and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (Ballet and Modern).

Mi-Cher Dance Academy Class Descriptions
Pre-School Ballet Classes
Budding Ballerinas classes run from September to June and these tiny dancers are included in our year end production. The smallest dancers on stage are always a crowd favourite!
Ballet Primary Grades:
Pre-Primary, Primary and Grade One classes are offered once a week at Mi-Cher. These classes are based on the Royal Academy of Dance program, with a continuing emphasis on fun, as well as building a solid foundation in ballet training. Children enrolled in these classes are included in the year end production.
Ballet Intermediate Grades:
Grades Two, Three, Four and Five continue with training through the RAD and or ISTD ballet syllabi. Students registered in these classes must attend a minimum of twice a week and in grade four and five a third lesson per week is encouraged for the more serious student.

Modern Dance Program – 6 years and up
We believe that a strong ballet technique enhances all other forms of dance – therefore, all students wishing to register for the modern dance program must be taking their minimum number of ballet classes before being allowed to register for modern.
Students must be 6 years old by December to register. Our modern dance Program is VERY popular and registration is on a first come, first served policy.
The Modern program follows the ISTD syllabus and is taught by Karrie Hill.
Beginner Tap Program: 5- 9 years old
The Mi-Cher Dance tap program is new for Fall 2020, we are excited to offer a beginner tap program, if there is interest for older dancer, we will add classes.
All tap dancers at Mi-Cher are required to be enrolled in our ballet program, as we believe that ballet is the foundation of all forms of dance.
