Les Kangourous is an ideal class for young children who are beginning to explore independence and venture into activities without their parents. The class is designed for children who will be aged 2.5 to 3.5 years old in September. The 45-minute course aims to awaken their interest in dance by exploring music, dance movements, games, songs, as well as introducing them to various instruments. The children will engage in movement, stories, and elements of dance, all guided by the magic box. Kangaroo classes are part of the full-season program, but they are also offered in half-sessions. These half-sessions run from September to December, including a Christmas show, and from January to April, culminating in an annual performance. This adaptation is made to better accommodate the needs of families and their schedules.

Dress code

  • Leotard or t-shirt with tights or leggings, skirt or dance shorts 

  • T-shirt, sport pants or leggings, dance shorts 

  • Black socks or ballet shoes

  • New policy for La Girandole's box of used shoes (please see the policy handbook) 

Age Policy

  • The minimum age requirement is determined based on the child's age as of September 1st. However, it is possible for a teacher to recommend a dancer to move up or down a course level depending on their technical ability and/or experience. The placement week will take place during the first week of classes in September.

  • Non-parented classes: We encourage parents interested in enrolling their child in non-parented classes to consider whether the child is ready for such a class. Dancers enrolled in these classes should be able to participate in group activities independently, follow instructions, and navigate social spaces with confidence. Additionally, children should be capable of using the restroom independently, as teachers will not be able to assist them during the class. If you have any doubts, we encourage you to discuss them with us before registration or consider trying a parented class.

Language Policy

  • All dance classes are conducted in French. Therefore, registered dancers must have a good understanding of French in order to comply with the Association's mandate and speak in French at all times. La Girandole reserves the right to withdraw any dancer who does not meet this criterion adequately.

Policy on Refunds

  • The Association accepts refund requests for the full-season program up to four weeks after the start of the session, with the following administrative fees applied. After this period, the annual fees become non-refundable (starting from October 1st), unless there is a medical or family emergency.

  • 1 week after the start of the session: Refund minus $75 administrative fee. 2 weeks after the start of the session: Refund minus $100 administrative fee3 weeks after the start of the session: Refund minus $125 administrative fee. 4 weeks after the start of the session: Refund minus $150 administrative fee.
