Is your School or Community looking for the opportunity to give your children a fine arts experience where creativity, expression, imagination, and fun are the main objectives?

At J'Adore Dance we are happy to be able to offer you a variety of fieldtrips, workshops, and special events that have been masterfully designed by Educators Chantel Sampson and Jenna Brenan. Our programs are developmentally appropriate for learners of all ages and can be integrated with your curricular objectives with a focus on success for all!

We believe that all people, regardless of age or ability, should have the opportunity to explore dance, music, and art as a way to celebrate culture, as a form of expression, and as a part of a physically active lifestyle. We understand that each child is unique and strive to create programming that celebrates individuality while working together.

Research has shown that participating in fine arts activities:

  • Foster children’s social, cognitive, and physical development
  • Increases academic performance
  • Supports self-esteem development
  • Fosters positive interactions peers


Early Childhood (Preschool - Grade 1)

Elementary School Curricular Integration

Are you looking for a movement activity to support your Science, Social Studies, Math, Health or Language Arts program?

We have designed dance and movement activities that correlate with the Alberta Program of Studies in each of the subject areas for each grade level. This program will give your students an opportunity to integrate movement into a cross curricular activity.

Our programming provides opportunities that support multiple- intelligences and learning styles and provide a holistic approach to health and wellness. The programs engage children in developmentally appropriate activities, based on movement, dance, song, rhyme, imagination, and play, allowing for freedom of expression.
