The SBS Dance Philosophy

As Ottawa’s family-friendly dance studio, we pride ourselves on treating everyone as part of the family.  We maintain small class sizes to ensure your child gets real instruction and attention.  We only hire the best teachers, work with the best choreographers, and maintain a positive environment for each and every child.

We also make sure our parents have a comfortable and friendly waiting area with all the amenities you would expect from a high-end studio.


SBS Dance will introduce your children to the world of dance. Give them confidence & watch them grow.

Perfect For Kids 3 - 7 & pre teens

No matter their level of experience, SBS will ensure they have fun & learn!  What better way to grow and exercise?


Classes for teens that will encourgage them to express themselves and communicate through dance.

Further your training & passion

From Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop and Musical Theatre, there are many options to choose from.  Whether the passion is to teach, to train, to choreograph or to pursue other avenues entirely, the discipline and dedication learned through dance will stay with each student.


As the first studio in Ottawa to offer programs specifically designed for Boyz (all ages), SBS continues to grow this program.

Everyone should learn to dance.

Encouraging Boyz to dance and participate has led to a large male student base that continues to grow.  Allowing everyone the chance to express themselves is a key goal of SBS Dance.

SBS Classes for the 2017-2018 Season

Classes vary by discipline.  There are many levels of classes and requirements in order to move from level to level in a particular discipline.  Either you have been training for a while with SBS and know what level your child is at or they can be assessed to ensure your child is put in the right class.  Our goal is to encourage them to push themselves and to succeed.
