Located in Kanata, Ontario, the Linda Jamieson School of Dance has been training young dancers for over thirty years. The owner is an internationally-renowned teacher and choreographer who began dancing when she was five years old. By the time she was seventeen, Linda Jamieson had won a dozen championships, both in Canada and abroad, and went on to win the World Highland Dancing Championship twice. She has also gained international recognition from her work in choreography, including the musical "Peace Child" and the Traditional Celtic Music Revue. She is joined by a faculty that includes Master Teacher Ellen Andrews as well as several highly-accomplished younger teachers.
The Linda Jamieson School of Dance is dedicated to motivating and inspiring a love of dancing in youngsters from ages three through nineteen. Students can pursue ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary dance, musical theatre, or some combination of these. Children are welcome whether they want lessons simply for the joy of dancing or want to become professional dancers.
Ballet training follows the system of the Royal Academy of Dance, while jazz and tap instruction follows the Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers syllabus. Martha Graham and Jose Limon's technique forms the basis of contemporary dance lessons. The musical theatre classes are based upon the techniques of the Broadway stage tradition developed by Jack Cole and popularized by later Broadway choreographers. Students successfully completing any of these courses of instruction are ready for professional work. Former students have danced with prestigious companies, including the Ontario Ballet Theatre and London's Royal Ballet Company.
