After having performed as principal dancers on stages around the world, we created the Hattori/Williamson School of Ballet with the mission of establishing a new standard of dance instruction in Western Canada for all aspiring dancers - from young dancers putting on their first pair of pointe shoes to dedicated students looking to pursue a professional career in ballet, and everything in between.
Starting with students as young as 4 years of age, the Hattori/Williamson School of Ballet offers programs for people of all ages and abilities. From aspiring young dancers pursuing a professional dance career and dancers preparing to audition for ballet companies, to older adults looking to have some fun in a group setting, the teachers provide a safe and supportive environment for each person to learn and grow through ballet; to achieve their highest level of expression while experiencing the liberation of truly dancing freely.
