HAMILTON LOCATION (Our Main site) - 833 Upper James Street, Rear Unit (near Mohawk Road E. behind the Pioneer/Wendy's, near Lazer Mania) We moved into this space January 1, 2016.
We are on the ground floor, and have over 70 parking spaces available, to make parking easy on our parents. We are also easily accessible from The Link, and there is a bus stop out front. Enter through the main doors, once in the main lobby area our unit is on the right. You may relax in our parent waitingroom while your child is in class.
If you wish, you may drop off your child and run some errands, or grab a coffee, and return at the end of class. Alternately you may choose to hang out in our waiting room and chat with other parents in our NJADS family. Make sure you arrive 5 minutes before the end of class, as you may be invited in to view a combination that your child has been working on! We ask that parents of young children - those in our Creative Movement for Tots and Pre-Dance classes - stay during class in case their child needs assistance in the bathroom.
The student changeroom is to the left of our lobby area. There are cubbies and hooks available for your child to store their clothing and personal belongings while they are in dance class.
Our studio has central air conditioning, and both Studio A and B have special sprung dance floors. Our flooring was designed and tested by dancers from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and engineers to ensure great resilience and absorbency. Santoprene rubber cushions provide the consistent “spring” in the sprung dance floor, and ensures less chance of ankle, spinal or leg injury to our students. This allows dancers to train with confidence in our dance studios! Our Studio Cameras in Studio A and B allow parents to observe dance lessons while on site without disturbing the classes.
STUDIO C - Studio C is home to our Homework Club. This room is meant as a quiet space for dancers who are in need of a quiet place between classes are able to come into here set days to focus on school work. During the 2020-2021 season this room the homework club will be closed due to the current pandemic.
Our sister studio is located at 1412 Sandhill Drive, Unit C, Ancaster. Minutes from the heart of Ancaster, this bright and cheery studio will make you feel comfortable and at home once you step inside!
"I can't say enough great things about this studio. Amanda is an excellent teacher, and my daughter loved being in her class. The studio is clean and bright, and very easy to get to which makes it easy to get your child to lessons. I HIGHLY recommend Not Just Another Dance Studio!" Christina M, 2013
