Dance Extreme History
In 1997, a young 21 years old fresh out of university decided to offer dance classes in Dorchester Community Centre and St Thomas library under the name Dance Extreme. The following year, Miss Rebecca brought Dance Extreme Inc to its permanent location in London. Bringing a new and bright light to dance in the community. Her passion to connect age-appropriate learning, dedicated teachers who would not only teach dance but who would-be mentors to all students. Miss Rebecca and her team are dedicated to build self-esteem, teach life skills, experiment with artistry, and promote leadership.
From 1998-2008, Dance Extreme expanded from 2 dance rooms to 6 dance rooms. Expanding the studio increased the number of classes offered making it more convenient for families to coordinate their dancer(s) classes. They were able to expand programs including a performance team, triple threat program, pre-competitive and competitive programs. Dancers can come once a week for class or take other programs that awaken their greatness.
Dancers have been fortunate to perform at various fundraisers, galas, community events, etc. Some events include Ontario Summer Games, Harlem Globetrotters Tour, Mini Pops Tour, and more. In 2012, Dance Extreme was invited to perform at the Summer Olympics in London, UK.
In 2017, Dance Extreme moved to the current 16,000 gorgeous facilities with six air-conditioned studios, three large change rooms, a party/craft room, kitchen, and homework room (with water bottle filling station, microwave, and a fridge for the dancers and families), two lobbies, closed-circuit televisions with a live feed into each of the studios, a snack bar and an on-site store to serve our dance families better!
Then came 2020 – what can we say? It was a season we will never forget, with a quick move to online classes, then a pivot back to in-person classes and camps with safe distance and strict sanitizing protocol. We keep rising to the challenge and feel our persistence has helped show our dancers’ resilience and commitment to what they love – to dance!!

What people are saying
“We have been apart of the Dance Externe Family for the past 3 years and couldn’t have asked for a better environment for our daughter. Miss Rebecca only has the most wonderful and encouraging instructors. They run a fun environment for all their dancers - recreation to competitive. I would highly recommend this studio for dancers of all ages.”
“Before dance extreme we put our daughter in several sports and she would be upset and never want to participate so we decided to try dance. Dance extreme has helped her confidence and we are so thankful! she's excited to see her teachers and fellow dancers on Saturday mornings. We travel in from Lucan because it's honestly the best. I highly recommend this dance studio.”
“My daughters love Dance Extreme!!! They have learned more than just dance, but how to work hard for results, how to work as an effective team, how to take corrections to make their dancing stronger and how to support their friends through the highs and the lows. Thank you to all the teachers and staff at Dance Extreme for helping us raise strong, confident daughters!”
