Our Mission

The Greta Leeming Studio of Dance is a centre of dance excellence. Established in 1962, our first classes were held in the basement of then owner/director, Greta Robinson’s home, with only 30 students, teaching only ballet. Enrollment soared to 300 students in just 6 months, and the studio moved to Merivale and Kirkwood. As GLS built its reputation as a premier dance school and continued to grow, the studio moved to its current location in 1973, now teaching all forms of dance. In 2011, Mrs. Robinson hung up her pointe shoes and handed the reins over to Tami-Lynn Caloia, who had been at the studio for 20+ years as a teacher. In 2011, Tami-Lynn further expanded the studio space and facility, to meet the demands of enrollment. GLS has helped thousands of young dancers reach their full potential, with many moving on to become company dancers, entertainers, as well as dance education professionals. Our teachers and choreographers are highly qualified professionals, who are committed to providing every student, of any skill level, with quality training, in a positive environment. Come and see what 58 years of dance excellence can help you achieve!
