About Us

The Beginning

Team Canada Dance has been attending the official World Dance Championships since the 1990's when we first attended the World Tap Championships in Dresden, Germany.  Our first team consisted of 12 outstanding dancers from across Canada including: British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Québec.  The Canadian National Tap Team (choreographer Matthew Clark) placed in the TOP 5 in the world!  That experience was inspiring for our dancers and our team and since then, we have returned to win over 25 WORLD TITLES in Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Hip Hop and Showdance.  


Our Canadian team is respected for both our talent and sportsmanship and is admired worldwide as one of the "teams to beat!"


About the IDO OFFICIAL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
