Collingwood School of Dance

In Their Own Words

“My daughter Emma has asked to wear her most beautiful dance uniform everyday since we had our trial class last week and then registered immediately afterwards! Even during their most busy time, the first week of classes for the year, all of the incredible teachers made her feel so cared for, special and truly saw her and she felt this fully! She has gained so much confidence from the classes that we took together at the Collingwood School of Dance as a toddler and she was fully prepared to go into a class on her own as a result of the incredible teachers and wonderful programs! We are looking forward to many more years of continuing to watch Emma grow strong and even more confident and we are beyond thankful to be a part of such a beautiful community here!”

Emily Greene

“My daughter has been dancing at Collingwood School of Dance for over seven years. She started off as a prima and is now a company Dancer. Ballet- jazz- acro- lyrical – they have it all! Always extremely well organized, great teachers and professionally run. We felt we made a great choice when we signed her up as a three year old. Thanks Ms Stone and CSD!!”

Erin Churchill

“Our daughter Isabelle started in the mom and tot class and quickly got into prima 1! She absolutely loves dancing and loves everyone at CSD!! It is a great dance school and their end of year dance recital is amazing and so cute! Izzy will be in prima 2 this fall and she cant wait to continue her dance! Thanks CSD!!!”

“Absolute best dance school and that is because of the amazing teachers and incredible staff. The owner is incredibly respectable of all her students. She goes above & beyond in all that she does! Her talent and love for dance is seen in everything she does, she is an absolute blessing and inspiration to us all! ❤️ 5 ⭐️”

“Juniper started in the Prima Star Tot program and has recently gone on to the Fine Arts Club. It has been wonderful to see her progress each week. She is always so excited to go to her ‘club’ and see her new friends, and she is very proud of the artwork she takes home each week. (The 2-hour class is also a welcomed break to run a few errands or get caught up on things at home!) All the staff at Collingwood School of Dance Inc. have been wonderful to us and we’re so happy to have them in the community.”

Shannon Phillips

“Best Studio around. We have spent a year at another studio and made the switch this year, and could not be happier! They care about so much more than just the dance technique. Their program is about building successful, confident and inspired young people and they are excellent at it.”

Heather McCormack

“My toddler tried the Parent & Tot program this morning and LOVED it! We will definitely be signing up for the next session. The studio is professionally run from the sign up process to the class itself. I really appreciated the text message reminders of our trial class.”

Elise Gilbert

“My daughter did a trial class and immediately fell in love. She is a shy girl who bloomed right away in the lovely environment. I am excited to continue our journey as we have registered for classes.”

Holly Park

“My oldest daughter started here 9 years ago when she was 3. We have loved every minute of our CSD family. Now that my youngest is 3 she has started her first year of Ballet. The confidence and sense of community m children are experiencing is amazing.”

Jennifer LeClair

“Love, love, love Collingwood School of Dance! Since my daughter started in 2009 at the age of 3 we have been impressed by the outstanding dance instruction, the attention to detail, and the absolute dedication to the integrity of the art! In 2013 my youngest daughter also joined the CSD family! I am pleased to say that both girls’ unique interests and talents are valued and celebrated, and for that I am so grateful!!!”

Kelly Taylor

“Our experience at CSD has been very positive. The teachers are well knowledged and sufficiently challenge each dancer to improve their skill and technique. My girls come home happy (and tired!) and look forward to each week.”

Colleen Bolton

“Collingwood School of Dance is quite honestly the best dance studio in this area. They are extremely organized and have superior customer service. More importantly, I just love how they make each dancer feel so special. Couldn’t be happier.”

Cheryl Wallace

“Expressing the love of dance with two generations in our family. The teachers at CSD bring to life the beauty and joy of dance. The school is more than a dance school, the passion the teachers share and the atmosphere at the school, teach important life skills.
Amazing staff and a wide variety of classes available. Both for mum and kids! We just love it at Collingwood a school of Dance! Thank you CSD!”

Laura Bishop

“Great studio! Excellent space for students to learn from really knowledgeable teachers. You can really tell that dance and teaching is something they are passionate about which makes the kids feel really welcomed and they have a great time. For busy parents, its always a breeze to deal with all the other staff too, if its answering the same question for the millionth time or reminding me of things that I forgot about, they are super helpful and make sure everything runs smoothly.”

Isaie Pauze

“My 19 month old daughter loves the Prima Star Tots program! I am amazed at how quickly she has picked up on the dances. This is our second session and even after a small break she picked it up again very quickly. My daughter has even learned to say some letters now from doing a dance exercise with the alphabet song. Even without me encouraging it at home I will notice her doing some of the dances from the program at home ?  Devon is fantastic with the children & families. I would highly recommend Collingwood School of Dance and we are excited to continue watching my daughter grow in the program.”

Holly Mitchell

“When my daughter started at Collingwood school of dance she was very shy and didn’t want to go into class. Now after 2 years she can’t wait to go to dance class! She has so much fun and learns so much. Can’t wait to see her grow through dance!”

Michael H

“My daughter loves every experience she has had at the studio (parent and tot, Prima Star and Fine Arts Club). She looks forward to going to each class and is excited to share what she has learned when at home. Every part of our experience has been positive and we highly recommend the studio to parents looking to enroll their child into something positive and fun!”

Jordynne Metheral

“We love CSD! We have been dancing there for nearly 7 years. My eldest daughter began in Prima 1 and has progressed through the entire Prima Program. She is now in the Junior level and a member of the Company. She takes part in many dance opportunities provided by CSD including recitals, workshops, exams, competitions and special days dedicated to furthering her training. There are also lots of fun summer activities available for all ages. She takes Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Acro. My younger daughter is nearly finished her Prima years and will follow in her sister’s steps I’m sure 🙂 My girls “live” dance and have been inspired immensely by their experience at CSD. It has become our home away from home! The teachers are friendly and gifted and they share their knowledge with the children lovingly. The director/ owner is friendly and I have had nothing but positive interaction with her in my several years there. The dancers are talented and you can see the love of dance shining through their faces. We are so glad to be a part of the CSD family!”

Virginia Phillips

“We are new to the world of dance and signing up our daughter was a great experience! It was easy and all our questions were answered quickly. We cannot wait to grow with the studio. Thank you!”

Amanda Pilieci

“My daughter is 3.5yrs and it has been hard to transition into programs during Covid as restrictions make it so that parents often can not watch their kids during their activities. Collingwood school of dance has been so supportive to us and our daughter the whole way, creating a comfortable and supportive environment during this time. Our daughter is thriving and enjoys her time in the fine arts program.”

Jeff & Ali Reid

“We have enrolled our daughter in the fine arts club and she loves it! The instructors are wonderful. Highly recommended!”

Meg White

“My daughter was so excited about the free trial dance class. She enjoyed it so much. Cant wait for the season to begin for her in September! Everyone there is super friendly and helpful!”

Kristyn Carey

“My daughter has been enjoying her class immensely at the Collingwood school of dance! She counts down the days until class. She took her time deciding what genre was for her, and finally decided she loves musical theatre. It is fantastic to see schools offering trial lessons, especially during these uncertain times where parents are having to be more selective on what extra curriculars their child can attend. Danielle has been extra attentive to our needs and going above and beyond to ensure that we feel comfortable with the school. Overall, amazing experience.”

Laura Page-Hamelin

“I’m very happy with my choice to enrol my child in classes at Collingwood School of Dance they came highly recommended to me by a few friends and I’m excited for my child!”

Drs. David & Bernadette Vecchio

“Collingwood school of dance is amazing! The staff are so helpful and go out of their way to make this experience positive for both child and parents. We drive all the wa from Wasaga Beach to bring our daughter to this dance studio!!”

Krista Castator

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all of the work that you put into making Emma’s (and so many of her little friends) week! She tries to sleep with her crown on she loves it so much and to get a little gift at the end of such a wonderful week really made her feel extra special!

Amanda Clayton

“We’re a family from Wasaga beach and chose our daughter to start dance classes at the collingwood school of dance. Location for us isn’t ideal as there’s a dance studio less than a km from our home but the atmosphere, programs, professionalism of staff and availability the collingwood dance studio offers we couldn’t turn this opportunity away from our daughters. We gladly do the drive as we know she’s in great hands.”

Jamie-Lynn Babin

“Thank you so much Ms. Stone! Ella absolutely LOVED the Unicorn and Princess camp!! She hasn’t stopped talking about it all weekend… I still have to break the news that there isn’t camp next week lol.”
