The Dance Method (TDM) is a boutique dance studio dedicated to offering an elevated dance experience for ages 2 and up. Our approach is unique, focusing on the individual journey of each dancer. Whether you're dancing for the sheer joy of it or are fueled by competition, our training ensures you get the best out of every session.

At TDM, dance is more than just steps and routines. We believe in building a supportive community, fostering adaptability across styles, and emphasizing performance techniques. Our commitment is to provide a space where every dancer feels included and valued. Through respect and passion, we aim to offer a dance environment that genuinely stands out, all while keeping the spotlight on the dancers themselves


Located in Winnipeg's East Kildonan Neighbourhood at 714 Watt St, The Dance Method (TDM) offers a space where dancers can feel at ease. Our two bright studios provide ample room for movement and expression. Adjacent, we have roomy change areas and accessible washrooms for convenience. For those moments in between dance sessions, there's a chill room—a spot to relax or catch up on homework. At TDM, our goal is to make everyone feel welcome and at home

We absolutely love this studio and are so happy with the kind, knowledgeable, talented, well-versed instructors, and of course the owner who is amazing to work with and so talented as well. We love the various classes offered and the whole “feel” of the studio. This was exactly what our daughter was looking for in a dance studio and she is so happy be a part of the studio and team. TDM sees the dancers as individuals, and as a team, and works on their natural strengths and pushes them to grow- and also have a lot of fun while doing so. 10/10 for our family!

We love The Dance Method! The studio provides a small class, close community atmosphere. Ms. Orielle truly cares about all of her students. All of the instructors have been wonderful to work with and we can’t wait for the next season!
