About


Take 5 Dance was founded 16 years ago when Jesslyn Truax started with no students, just a love for teaching dance. With a lot of hard work and through word of mouth the studio has now grown tremendously over the past 16 years.

All students, recreational and competitive, will receive high quality instruction from well educated, well rounded, experienced instructors who have taken all styles of dance throughout their dance careers. We take workshops and classes regularly to keep up to date with new technique, style and choreography from Toronto to LA. Our students have achieved numerous awards including Overalls, Presentation, and Choreography just to name a few. Some of our dancers have gone on to perform in the dance industry, own studios of their own, and professional companies.

Take 5 ensures each instructor is enthusiastic, energetic, and encouraging positive role models who strive to bring the best out the best in each individual student. We are extremely proud of all the dancers and families involved with the studio and ensure we are positive role models for our students both in and out of the studio creating not only incredible confident dancers but intelligent respectful young adults.
