Havens Heels Company

An adult dance training and performance program from Burlington - Stoney Creek!

About Us

The Havens Heels Company program is a 12-week commitment program. When you register, you are registering for 1x per week for 12 weeks. Each class is 2 hours & is mandatory for those registered for the full 12 week session.  In the first hour, dancers learn skills, drills & a new fun piece of choreography each week. The second hour is dedicated to Show Choreography. This means that you have to remember this choreography every week, as it will be performed in a professional theatre showcase at the end of the 12 weeks!

Open to anyone who wants to dance – All levels, all experiences and all bodies have space & a place here.

Please Note: The first hour is also open to dancers that are not registered for the full program. If you are looking to drop in here & there for some fun choreography, please join us in the first hour*
