Pantuso Dance offers an extensive tap dance program along with jazz, ballet, ballet contemporary, hip hop, Lyrical jazz, modern, modern improvisation and musical theatre classes. Students benefit from being immersed in many styles since our teachers continue to better their craft and regularly take workshops from the masters and bring this knowledge and repertoire back to share with all enrolled with Pantuso Dance.
Also unique to our school is the amazing fundraising of the Pantuso Dance Parent Auxiliary Society which raises money to bring in world class guest teachers, sponsors the Masterclass Festival, Spring Fling, provides over $2000 in scholarships to our students each year and produces our annual entry in the Christmas Parade. For a list of the amazing guest teachers we have brought in please see our “faculty” page.
Pantuso Dance is committed to providing the highest quality dance training in a respectful, supportive, fun and non-competitive environment. Through our instruction, students gain an appreciation for the art of dance and are given the opportunity to reach their own greatest potential. We foster a community of active and involved teachers, students and family members who are inspired by a love of the performing arts.
Pantuso Dance Parent Auxiliary Society
The Pantuso Dance Auxiliary is comprised of parents who fundraise and organize events for the Pantuso Dance community. Money raised is used to recognize students (in the way of tuition scholarships), who excel in dance skill and/or outstanding spirit and dedication. Funds are also used to bring in guest instructors and provide grants to students who want to further their dance education outside the school. The Auxiliary also sponsors special events such as the entry in the Comox Valley Christmas Parade and the year-end Carnival. If you are interested in becoming a member, e-mail us at email@example.com.
