A LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR

Dance FX Studio was established in September 1994. Dance FX has grown to achieve great status in the dance community in the company of award winning dancers and choreographers. We have been ‘kickin’ it in Niagara since then and have been repeatedly voted #1 DANCE STUDIO IN NIAGARA!!   We are all "kicking up our heels" as we are embarking on 27YRS OF DFX!!...super excited to dance into SEASON #27!!!!

 

At DANCE FX, our objective is to teach the art of dance while at the same time make it a truly enjoyable experience for both dancers and their parents. The dance student will gain a sense of rhythm and co-ordination and learn the art of performance. 

 

Along with our annual dance recitals – which are the highlight of the year and truly a show-stopping performance, DANCE FX also has selective competitive dancers who make up our Award-Winning Team FX Dance Crew. We are also very involved in many local events, charity functions, parades, community performances and much more including our annual performances in local Parades, at our Niagara Ice Dogs, the Hamilton Tiger Cats half-time show at Tim Hortons Field and much more. The exposure our dancers receive instill confidence and capture the true spirit of teamwork. 

As a dance director and educator, I understand the benefits of exposing students to different dance environments. It is my hope to bring together students from different dance backgrounds to learn in a positive, nurturing and challenging atmosphere. DANCE FX will allow both students and parents to enjoy a unique dance experience.

Yours in Dance ... Ang Fonzo

Our daughter has been with Dance FX Studio now going in her third year.  The studio offers a positive environment which fosters confidence and team work among all the kids.  The staff is super friendly and the parents behind the scenes are uber supportive of each other.  The atmosphere is very family oriented and my daughter has made lifelong friends because of Dance FX.  We can’t imagine have our daughter dancing anywhere else.  Thanks to Ms Ang and her dedicated team!!!!

My daughter loves it! She wants to dance everyday, relaxed atmosphere.
