Dance Extreme History
Welcome to Dance Extreme – where the love for dance began in 1997! Founded by Miss Rebecca, we started in Dorchester, expanding to our permanent London location in 1998. Our focus is on age-appropriate learning and mentorship, promoting mindfulness, self-esteem, life skills, and leadership through dance. With over 250 classes offered per week, scheduling for families is made easier!
From 1998-2008, we grew from 2 to 6 studios, offering diverse programs like the performance team, triple threat, pre-competitive, and competitive programs. Our dancers have shone at fundraisers, galas, community events, etc. They have also had the privilege of performing at events like the Ontario Summer Games, Harlem Globetrotters Tour, Mini Pops Tour and the Summer Olympics in London (2012) and Paris (2024).
In 2017, we moved to a gorgeous 16,000 sq ft facility in London with six studios, change rooms, a party/craft room, a kitchen, and more. With two lobbies for parents, closed circuit televisions with a live feed to each of our studios, a snack bar and access to DX Dance Boutique to serve families better!
Despite challenges in 2020, we adapted to online classes and returned safely to in-person sessions. Miss Rebecca was one of the founders and board members of Dance Safe Ontario and communicated with over 800 dance studios across Ontario to ensure everyone’s safety.
As we look ahead to the 2024-2025 season, join Dance Extreme for a dance-filled journey. Uncover the joy of dance with our dedicated community!

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!”

“Incredible experience for our first-time dancer. Extremely clean studios and kind, attentive staff. Incredibly organized and amazing weekly themes/focus. Our daughter loves her teachers and is engaged and has fun while learning basic dance/ballet skills. Great place to start for toddler and stay as they grow..”
