The children's program of JWSD Cross Park focuses on building a solid foundation in creative movement, dance technique, rhythm, musicality, and artistry. Classes focus on development of strong ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop technique with an emphasis on proper placement and safe progressions of movement while remaining sensitive to the developmental needs of younger dancers. Classes promote learning in a fun and creative environment that dancers of all ages, experience-levels, and abilities will enjoy!

The Pre-Professional Program at JWSD Cross Park is a dance training program for students aged 7 and up. Established in 1985 in Windsor Park, Body Talk exposes dancers to the pre-professional world of dance with competitions, conventions, full-length productions, community performances and strong technical and performance training. The company formed on the belief that dance should be an accessible dream for all, not just the privileged few. Students thrive in an atmosphere dedicated to the success of each individual student.
This program is highly recommended for serious dancers ages 7-18. We find that the sooner a dancer joins the easier their progression will be. Come join us and let us take your dancing to the next level!!!
