We are thrilled to announce we have received a Community Development Grant from Jumpstart for the second term of our Citadel Dance Program! 

The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams. 

Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Organized sports connect kids to their communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized this and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated. Canadian Tire Corporation is Jumpstart’s biggest supporter as it funds all the general administrative expenses of Jumpstart, which means 100% of customer donations go directly to help kids in need.

Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.  

Registration is always open for our ballet and tap classes. We welcome young people with extensive as well as no background in dance, and ensure that their experience and training takes them to new levels. We offer full scholarships to students who live in Regent Park and low-income families.
