Links with the curriculum

As they practise different styles of dance, children will develop their physical literacy. Dance helps forming motor skills and psychological development by engaging children with the basics of dance such as timing, rhythm, space and effort.

In the traditional French Canadian dance classes, students will develop an appreciation and belonging in French Canadian culture in its historic context by means of the artistic perspective of dance.


One or two hours a week

Beyond traditional French-Canadian dance, La Girandole offers classes for ballet, hip hop, contemporary, jazz and many more! All classes are offered in French!

La Girandole, the only francophone dance school in Alberta, is the ideal place for children, ages 2 to 16, to learn to dance while having fun! In addition to learning the basic techniques for a dance style, your child will also be preparing, during the whole year, for an annual dance show.

With a reputation built on teaching French-Canadian dance, L’Association La Girandole is an ideal place for children who want to perfect their style or simply get in touch with their cultural origins.

These last few years, La Girandole has diversified its available programs. The school is proud to offer such a wide range of classes. Now here comes the hard part: Making your choice!
