BRAND NEW Kinder Dance Class Program

... All NEW Fall KINDER Dance Classes with Chiara Ackerman!
Starting September 12, 2015, we will be running a brand new series of Kinder Dance Classes for children aged 3-4 years and 5-6 years. We have hired a wonderful Nanaimo based teacher to run these new classes, and we are thrilled to have her as part of the Forever Yung Team.
Chiara Ackerman (nee Richmond) was raised in Port Alberni and trained at Pat Cummings School of Dance for 14 yrs. She learned various styles of Dance including Ballet, Jazz, Modern, and Tap. Chiara continued her dance training in Toronto and graduated from the National Ballet School's Teacher Training Program. She obtained her Associate Diploma (I.S.T.D.) in Cecchetti style Ballet and National Ethnic Dance. She also received a teaching certificate from the Royal Academy of Dance. Most of Chiara's work experience occurred while living abroad in Norway, Australia and Bermuda. Upon returning to Vancouver Island to raise a family, Chiara has taught for Harbour Dancentre, Tempo Dance Academy, Rhythm Dance Academy and Pat Cummings School of Dance.

Brand New Dance Calendar

We have decided to revamp these programs, based on student feedback, and June 2015 will now mark the launch of our new Dance Calendar! We will keep the 'Forever Fantastic' structure, but will be making changes and adding new classes and programs. Details will be posted soon.

Attention SINGLE dancers!

Are you one of those people who would love to take Dance lessons, but think you can’t because you don’t have a partner?

The Forever Yung Dance Studio WELCOMES SINGLE DANCERS! Our new ‘Forever Fantastic’ programs are designed for both couples and SINGLES in mind. Our classes focus on:

  • building strong basic technique through individual learning and
  • the fundamental partnering skills required for ‘together dancing’ through partner rotation

Calling to pre-register for a class enables us to make every effort to match our students with a dance partner. Many of our single dancers have made great friendships through dance lessons at our studio.
