GBSD Mission Statements
The Grey Bruce School of Dance is a reputable dance school in Hanover, ON which focuses on a disciplined, yet fun, environment. The primary function of this organization is to provide dance instruction to the residents of Hanover, Brockton, West Grey, and surrounding area. We recognize the importance of technique and creativity and strive to maintain high quality instruction through our experienced teachers.
Our goal is to enhance the artistic quality of the region by providing affordable dance classes to children, teens and adults. We are able to enrich and broaden the lives of our students through several forms of dance. Our students develop co-ordination, posture and a sense of rhythm. We hope to produce dedicated. disciplined dancers who possess an overall joy of moving to and interpreting music through their love of dance. We do not over-emphasis the importance of exams or competition, but rather, a love of the art of dance for its own sake.
This school is directed by dedicated parent volunteers and has served the community for over 50+ years by providing a progressive venue of quality dance instruction. We firmly believe that dance is a universal art form which should be available to anyone regardless of age, talent or economic background.
GBSD offers it’s students the opportunity to dance competitively. The intention for the Competition Dance Team is to provide these dancers with opportunities beyond the four walls of their studio, to inspire, to motivate, to challenge, and to enrich each one of them. "Competition" is not just about winning, as winning is the least important thing. It is about inspiring and striving to be the best you can be, developing lasting friendships and about sharing your passion.
It is our hope that our competitive students will realize that authentic success comes not only from reaching or exceeding their specific performance goals, but with the satisfaction of knowing they have done their best.
