Our recreational program offers something for everyone. Children are not pressured to competitively perform and they learn the fundamentals of dance with other children in a more relaxed atmosphere. Still focusing on technique, positive self-image & freedom of expression, learning is enhanced when children enjoy the classes and have fun first.
Our competitive programs are for the more serious dance student. This programs calls for additional training & hours at the studio. Competitive programs teach dancers dedication to their art, time management skills, accountability, goal setting & positive team building. Dancers are given the opportunity to perform numerous times within the year for a credited panel of judges & receive constructive feedback to help further their dance training. Examinations are encouraged when working within this program.
Whichever program you chose, you & your dancer will be comfortable in our nurturing environment.
Mahogany Dance Arts is active in sharing the performing arts through out the Community. Giving shows to local schools, hospitals, elder homes & charitable events. Giving back is important for the development of our children, our neighbours, and the entire Community.
As dance is a performing art form, Mahogany Dance Arts feels it is important to provide ALL dance students with the opportunity for a public performance. All students will participate in a year- end dance recital to be held at a local theatre in June. This is a celebration of dance & all your child has learned through out the year.
We look forward to you joining us!

At Mahogany Dance Arts we are happy to offer exams in accordance with the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) & Acrobatic Arts. Our teachers are certified to enter dancers in these examinations. Dance exams are optional, but are encouraged to develop greater understanding and attention to detail and encourages the dancers to set goals and perform at their personal best.
Each year dancers will be given the opportunity to participate in a Dance Convention held locally here in Calgary. Conventions expose the dancers to new styles of dance and choreography taught by some of the industries leaders. The Convention experience is very different from the classroom experience & exposes the children to a different platform of dance. Conventions focus on combos, picking up choreography quickly, free style, performance quality, audition process & so much more. It is a fantastic weekend of learning & fun!
We offer private lessons for individuals of ALL dancing levels who are eager to learn & improve their dancing skill sin a one-on-one teaching environment. This is the best way to become the dancer you want to be as quickly as possible. We tailor each lesson to the the individual student.
