What our clients are saying...

It's sometimes hard to find adult ballet classes that are challenging yet not geared towards professionals. But this studio fits the bill. The teachers are welcoming and give good feedback. I will come again. Kaitlin Biggar
It is just too easy to share some positive thoughts about extension room! In my many years of fitness classes, never have I enjoyed a workout as much as I do Jenn Nichols' allegro bootcamp! A challenging full body workout choreographed to upbeat music in a beautiful dance space. I love this class! Chandy Green
My name is Lauren and I took a ballet class at the Extension Room. The studio was spacious and the instructor was patient with those that were new or getting back into dancing. I really enjoyed my time there and will be back soon! Lauren Fraser
For better or worse, I value beauty. Dance, to me, is the beauty of form superimposed on physical exertion. The Extension Room has been my haven every week. I leave the studio euphoric and energized (and a little sore). Gina E.
I was really happy to discover the barre fitness class at Extension Room - I was looking for a ballet-like barre fitness class, and this was the only one of its kind in the city! The instructor was great, and the studio is spacious. I look forward to trying the other classes The Extension Room has to offer! Lisa C.
Not only are Jennifer and her instructors leading us in an amazing, motivating workout, but I'm back into dance, where my heart belongs. Donna O'Connor
Extension Room is great - the studio space is beautiful, the instructors are excellent and the classes are full of variety and are an effective workout. I've tried ballet fit and barre type classes elsewhere and they don't compare. Aiden Stanley
I have always enjoyed kick-starting my weekends at The Extension Room with a barre or ballet bootcamp class because it sets my mood on a positive note for the rest of the week to come! Sandra Nie
I participated in my first Bootcamp class last week. Intimidating with its intensity and speed of movement but I was encouraged and even complimented! I will be back for more. Thank you. Yvonne O'Hara
I recently moved to the east end and was so happy to discover this gem of a studio. I love going to classes at the Extension Method™. All the instructors are very welcoming and the atmosphere is fun and engaging no matter what your fitness level. Such a unique and great way to workout! Leslie Hopkins
I’ve taken a number of classes at the Extension Room. The quality of the instructors is consistently great. The classes are a great mix of athleticism and art and the beautiful space is always inspiring. Helga Breier
Jenn's classes have helped me get physically, mentally and spiritually in shape. It's great to have a place where you can focus on yourself, with great knowledgeable instructors. Marissa Richmond
The Extension Room has helped me develop my balance and coordination in a group setting. I started off with a lot of difficulty but after five classes there was great improvement. I've learned what parts of my body need extra strengthening as well! A. Miller
I went to a class at Extension Room and I loved it. I left the class feeling energized and stronger. It is also a beautiful studio. I would recommend to everyone. :) Kelly Scott
