about us and our instructors

Elevation Dancentre was created by longtime friends and dance partners, Hellen Pavlis and Joseph Grzeskiewicz. Both having many years in the competitive and professional world of dance, they have grown up in studios and understood what changes had to be made in order to make a difference in the studio circuit. Their vision was to create a space for dancers to feel like they have finally arrived. The studio was designed with a fusion of Urban boutique meets Contemporary tradition in mind.
 At a great location (just steps from downtown and minutes from the subway), many professionals and dancers in training have scaled the steps up to Elevation and have experienced the charm. Having only been open since September 2006, Elevation Dancentre has already become the discussion as the place to be for dancer development and taking in classes from Toronto’s top talent.
 Since September, Elevation has welcomed international and homegrown top dancers/choreographers, (Kumari NY, Lenny DeLaPena San Francisco’s Bay Area, David Cox from St. Catharines) Elevation Dancentre can also be seen on up-coming shows on the Life Network and has been used for rehearsal space for many dance troupes and company’s such as KOBA Family and Miss Canada Globe Productions.

Elevation Dancentre is also the home to The Elevation Group. An entertainment company which specializes in providing; concept creation, choreography, artistic direction for all types of media, corporate and theatre entertainment.
