Niagara Dance and Fitness Studio was founded in 2011 to serve the community and to take the local dance scene to a higher level in dance. 

Let me introduce myself, my name is Brenda Dykun, Owner/Director of the NIAGARA DANCE & FITNESS STUDIO. I started dancing when I was 5 years old with Royal Academy of Dancing & Cecchetti Method. From 13 years old to 18 I was trained by Professional Ballerina Masha Stom. Here is where I was part of a small group called Stom Dance Foundation. This is where I had the opportunity to perform at various venues across Niagara and Toronto. While performing, I still had the  opportunity to teach, and this is where I fell in love with teaching. At 18 , I was accepted to the National Ballet School’s 3 year intensive teachers training program, where I received my Associate status with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. Not only becoming a Ballet Director upon graduation- with continued hard work and attending several courses with the National Ballet School and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School, I had passed my Licentiate Examination with the ISTD.

With a desire to always bring the BEST and give the BEST to your children, I have (July 2014) received my Modern Certification with CDTA, as well as in (November 2012) through an intensive examination my FULL MEMBERSHIP STATUS with the Canadian Dance Teachers Association. This is an elite group of Dance teachers striving to bring the highest quality of dancing to your children. As well, ( November 2012) became a member of the Professional Adjudicators Alliance. This is a group of professional dance teachers who are striving to increase the caliber of Competitive Dance.

Having well over 30 years experience in the Art of teaching and Directing at various schools from Recreational to Professional, and having students compete in Competitions and always successfully pass with Top marks in Examinations, the NIAGARA DANCE & FITNESS STUDIO is the studio for you.I am so proud of the positive comments that I receive on a daily bases of what the studio brings to everyone. Whatever your dream is that you want to reach, come in and talk to me, and we will walk that path together.

The NIAGARA DANCE & FITNESS STUDIO will be a place where everyone will want to come and experience the love and joy of dance, and form ever lasting friendships. Age has no boundaries, there will be something there for you to do, and try. Dance and Fitness, Health and Well-being are the focus of people today, and the NIAGARA DANCE & FITNESS STUDIO will provide this. I am very proud to say that for the past three years we have been working very closely with Community Living of Lincoln to offer a dance class that is specific to the needs and wishes of the group as a whole. They as well, are part of our year end recital where this is where they really shine!

Our focus ( mandate) is to teach the Art of Dance. Whether your child comes to us to dance for recreation, or your child is wanting to do Examinations and or Competitions, you will get the SAME TECHNICAL TRAINING. This will ensure that your child and you, understands, and can perform the movements properly. We work to have a fun family atmosphere, where every single person walking through that door gets treated with the utmost respect, and will have a chance to shine. The end of the year recital is a chance where all dancers come together to show the progression and their talents from what they have learned during the year.

We strive to be vital contributors in the community to help raise awareness for various charities:

Examples of our contributions include: Flash Mob in St. Catharines to help M & M Meats with their local charity event to raise funds for Chrons & Colitis, Flash Mob with Community Living in Beamsville to raise funds for their “Walk for Inclusion” Flash Mob in Grimsby for Big Brother’s- Sister’s to raise funds for them Flash Mob in Beamsville for Community Care of West Lincoln 24th annual food drive. There are many more that our group of volunteers have done. Doing Flash Mobs are a great way to spread joy and excitement and create awareness as well as giving back. NDFS is a place where dreams are made and fulfilled.!

I ask you to come and tell me what your dream or wish is for the coming year, and together, we will create a plan to ensure that your dream comes true! It is my goal, to ensure that everyone who walks up those stairs, truly enjoy their time spent with NDFS and have the knowledge and confidence to be a better dancer!!

“If to dance is to dream, then let your dreams come true.”
