An excellent foundation for all students, ballet serves as the basis for most dance forms. Ballet improves strength, posture, balance, control, and technique, making it necessary for all other forms of dance.


Jazz is a fundamental dance form that complements all other dance forms. Emphasis is placed upon technique, flexibility, and building style through choreography.


Tap is a form of dance that focuses on coordination, timing, and rhythm. It is an expression of movement through sound, with deep-rooted cultural backgrounds.

Harlen Woodcraft – Harvey & Glenda Klassen

Harvey is originally from Saskatoon, Glenda from Moose Jaw. Back in 1982 Glenda took a woodworking course that turned into a business in small town Saskatchewan. Harvey has been working with wood and doing renovations for years.

After a few years in Alberta we came back to Caron, Saskatchewan where our workshop is today.

We love using exotic, live edge wood to create our unique pieces. We use reclaimed wood so the availability of exotic wood is more difficult to find today. Barn wood, teak roots, cedar, maple, larch, pine, even diamond willow are favourites. Every piece is ONE of a kind! Mankind today tends to strip individuality in exchange for mass production. Our philosophy is to change that. All our pieces are unique baring the soul of the wood, after all wood provides us with the air we breath and the shelter we live in!

We have been selling our products through trade shows, craft shows, and markets which is not feasible now due to the pandemic. Showcasing our products with Alana (our daughter) at Against the Grain Artisan Gallery & Tattoo is an exciting new venture for us!

Paintings by Jason Gillard

Jason Gillard is a local artist who paints mostly using modelling paste, newsprint & acrylics. Hes a self-taught artist from a creative & artistic family, who only picked up a brush after the age of 40! He finds painting to be a form of therapy, as well as, fun. Jason  takes joy in creating art for the everyday person & keeps his paintings priced extremely reasonable, as they generally are large!
The greatest compliment for him is when someone’s proud to hang his paintings on their wall. We hope you enjoy his Art as much as we do & as much as he enjoyed creating them!
