In recent years we started the tradition of celebrating students who have dedicated a part of their life and part of their dance journey to In Harmony Dance for a number of years. As dance educators we have the distinct honour of watching dancers grow with us year after year. Being a part of and celebrating  their accomplishments in and out of the studio is the best part of our jobs and the relationship we build with these students often last long beyond the end of their time at the studio.

Throughout the next couple of months we will be doing some student profiles on these amazing students so you get to know them a little better and they will receive recognition at our competitive gala and year end recital.

Thank you to these students who have chosen to stick with dance, stick with the studio and stick with your training. The skills you have gained go beyond the studio and will enrich your life in ways you may not even realize. You have enriched and changed our lives by being a part of our studio culture. Thank you to the parents and support systems of these dancers who have trusted us with their children and allowed us to be a part of their lives. Thank you for all the drives you’ve given, recitals you’ve watched and for supporting not only your dancer but the studio. We so appreciate everything you do.

Congratulations and thank you to the following students:

Celebrating their 5th Anniversary at IHD: Carys H, Lia C, Isabella P, Lily S, Julianne C, Alex M, Katie M, Emmaleigh S, Taylor N, Taylor K, Lindsay O, Lauren O, Mikayla P, Avani D, Madeleine M, and Isabelle E

Celebrating their 10th Anniversary at IHD: Jenna C, Tori B, Evelyn S, Catherine S, Natasha H, and Elise Howson

This amazing group of students has touched our lives as teachers and continue to enrich our studio and the lives of the students they assist and teach as they share their passion and dedication to dance and our dance family each day. They continually take time out of their busy schedule and have donated countless hours to their training, our studio and the student’s they love. They continue to impress us with their professionalism, their talent and their pure passion for dance.

Our Assistant Teacher Program has allowed us to mentor and get to know the strengths and talent of these young women no matter how long they have trained with us and we hope has allowed them to become confident and able young dance instructors.

You’ll see Kiana, Tayler, Sarah, Nikki, Lauren, Jewell , Jaime, Jenna, Jasmine, Catherine and Erin around the studio as dancers, helping around studio events, facilitating birthday parties and in the studio teaching and assisting class for your dancers. We hope you get to know and love them as much as we do. We have watched each one of them work so hard to become the best assistants and dancers they can be and we are so proud to be a part of their journey.

We are slowly updating our website at www.inharmonydance.ca/pages/faculty as well as our faculty boards with our updated bios so you can learn even more about these young ladies. We are in the process of training some new eager students who will become the next generation of assistants and teachers at IHD.

Halloween week is in full swing at IHD. We’ve loved seeing the creative costumes and getting spooky in our Halloween themed classes. As we continue on with this fun filled week we wanted to share our list of the best spooky music to dance to this time of year!


5. The Adams Family Theme- We all love songs with some good accents to hit. The snaps in the song are perfect for hitting some sharp movement and there are some pretty sweet remixes too! Take a listen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J71JT9a_IZU


4. Monster Mash- This one’s a classic. Every little dancer should hear and dance to this song. Perfect for some free movement or acting out your favourite monster, you’ll definitely be hearing this one in class this week. Listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxcM3nCsglA

3. The Time Warp- Another classic Halloween tune and it already has the dance moves attached. So much your hands on your hips and pull your knees in tights and take a listen to this Halloween gem:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkplPbd2f60

2.Disturbia- This creepy Rhianna classic makes us think about all the creepy, crawly things Halloween has to offer. We even had a vampire dance to this song back in the day (check out the throwback pic) and listen to this great song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1mU6h4Xdxc

1. Thriller- Any Halloween song list could never be complete without the mention of this iconic song & video. The creepy vibe, the amazing dancing, Thriller is our number 1 song to get down to at Halloween. Listen & watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOnqjkJTMaA

We hope you enjoyed listening to our music picks for Halloween week. We can’t wait to see you moving to this music this week! Don’t forget to dress up for class!
