This season the School of Cadence Ballet is excited to announce we will be offering in-person supervision and academic support for our students. Flexible scheduling, half day options and tailored support to each child’s individual needs.
Commitment to students’ wellbeing and learning through a positive, safe environment is key, especially for our young elite athletes who seek to balance the demands of both a rigorous academic program and pre-professional ballet training. The goal of the academic school is to alleviate the stress that these athletes are confronted with due to the important demands of both academics and high level training. The School aspires to provide students with access to facilities, supervision, academic support and flexible educational programs to best position each student to reach their full potential.
Commitment to Students and Student Learning
“Fostering learning environments that contribute to our students overall sense of self, spirit, and belonging promotes well-being” (Achieving Excellence, Ontario’s renewed vision for education)
The goal of the academic school is to foster a learning environment where our young athletes have an opportunity to build strong bonds with their peers that have similar goals, attitudes and learning aptitudes all the while celebrating their individual uniqueness. By providing a space and more time for students to interact both academically and leisurely, the School aspires to develop a strong community of learners who are supportive of one another and who learn alongside each other.
Engagement, reflection and open communication with families, educators and students is a crucial part of the success of the School as it benefits all. The School aspires to support each family/student’s unique needs while ensuring that it aligns its procedures with the Ministry of Education and Health guidelines and in accordance with the boards of education. Open dialogue ensures that we exercise integrity in our responsibilities and allows us to identify areas where we need to pay more attention.

Full Day program
Our Full day Program provides young elite athletes who seek to balance the demands of both a rigorous academic program and pre-professional ballet training, with a supervised facility where they can seamlessly accomplish both. Students commence their day at 8:30 am and have their own reserved place to work until 2:30. Students have access to a Break out room for synchronous learning (when doing group work virtually) and a classroom for independent studies/asynchronous learning.
While students’ schedules might vary depending on each student's academic needs, the school aspires to create a community of learners who, together, will take ownership of their learning community by collaborating and setting norms. The facilitator in charge will oversee students' academic engagement and support them with time management. In addition, the facilitator will promote the well being of the learning community and liaise with parents.
Half- Day program
Our Half-day Program provides young elite athletes a supervised facility and is designed to be flexible and responsive to the current demands of the hybrid model offered by many school boards. Upon registration, students choose a two hour reserved block available between the hours of 12:30 - 4:30. This reserved block ensures that a student has his/her own reserved place to complete their academic work prior to their dance class. Students have access to a Break out room for synchronous learning and a classroom for independent studies/asynchronous learning.
The facilitator in charge will oversee students' academic engagement and support them with time management. In addition, the facilitator will promote the well being of the learning community and ensure health and safety protocols are in place for all students.
