MacDonald Island Dance Academy is a full service dance studio providing education in ballet, tap, jazz, modern, lyrical and hip hop. We are committed to providing the highest quality instruction in a fun environment that welcomes dancers of all skill levels. We offer accreditation through International Dance Examination Associations, with specialized “Star programs” for children thirty months to six years old and adult programming. Our mission is to provide Fort McMurray and the surrounding region with world class dance education, providing examinations, community outreach and performance opportunities. MacDonald Island Dance Academy focuses on developing young, passionate dancers while striving to be the heart of the dance community in our region.

Each dance class begins with a warm-up in order to prepare the body for exercise and to prevent injuries. Various stretching and strengthening exercises are performed during the warm-up to increase flexibility, strength, and control. Dancers will practice, acquire, and perform dance combinations specific to the type of dance, age, and ability level.
