Island Dance Academy was established in 1993 and has a long-standing reputation for excellence in both dance instruction and student’s technical development. IDA is the only registered facility with The Royal Academy of Dance as well as the Canadian Dance Teachers Association on the island. IDA specializes in both RAD and CDTA syllabuses and examinations focusing on classical ballet, contemporary, and jazz.

Our fully accredited Artistic Faculty brings with them extensive qualifications, training, and performance experience. IDA students have gone on to professionally train and perform with such schools as The Royal Winnipeg Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada, Alberta Ballet, Juilliard, and Broadway Dance Center in NY just to name a few.
