Strip away the satin to reveal the muscle of classical ballet

Testimonials

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, student

As an experienced dancer, I have struggled to find a barre class in Toronto that I find enjoyable and challenging, while also relaxed and energizing. The experience that Jen and her staff of talented dancers have created is truly unique. I love going to these classes as they allow me to practice technique, while also pushing myself physically to build more muscle and strength by going back to the basics and having fun!

Christy Prada, student

I have been in love with the Extension Method ever since my first class two years ago. I had been searching for a way to switch up my work-out routine and classes here achieve the perfect balance between a fun and challenging workout. Not only do I enjoy these classes, but I find myself stronger and in better cardiovascular shape. I look forward to attending them more for years to come!

Sara Schabas, student

Extension Room is great -- 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, student

It has been an absolute pleasure attending Jennifer Nichols' classes. There is real knowledge behind her practice and it is a joy to experience. I feel incredible after class and it is so fulfilling to feel all that work and fire created during class immediately. Thank you for creating such a beautiful space where there is a true sense of the art of ballet.

Lauren Sharpe, student

As a former dancer, and now exercise junkie - The Extension Room has become one of my favourite studios offering the best array of classes to get a good sweat while filling my creative soul! I live between Los Angeles, Toronto and LA and this studio is truly one of a kind. Taught by dancers, with a lot of experience in teaching and kinesiology, this is a super fun, safe and sweaty way to workout. Big fan, and highly recommend this studio to workout enthusiasts.

Michelle Calvert, student

I am such a big fan of the classes taught at the Extension Room because while you get a very intense workout, they are not so overwhelming for someone who does not have a dance background. All the instructors are really upbeat and great at explaining proper form. It really feels like you are building better posture while getting an awesome workout. Great studio and a really fun alternative to the gym.

Alina McLeod, student

Love at first sight. I never loved exercise until I found Jenn and the Extension Method. It started because Jenn creates a warm and inviting atmosphere for all levels of fitness. And now I’m addicted because not just my body, but also my mind, are challenged and energized by every class.

Sue Timmins, student

The Extension Room classes are both fun and challenging. The routines are well thought out, music is great, instructors are clear, enthusiastic and very inspiring. Jenn listens to her clientele and offers classes that suit their needs and makes every effort to make you feel at home.

Merle Anne Ridley, student

Jenn and The Extension Room have been constant in my life since shortly after her move to the Eastern Avenue location. She’s that rare twinning of consummate professionalism and heady, infectious enthusiasm. She loves what she does and she’s very good at what she does and her classes reflect that. l'll follow Jenn anywhere.

Christine Peterson, student

Five months of various Instagram and Zoom offerings have only served to confirm that the Extension Method is the ultimate badass workout of all time! I will follow you anywhere, anytime.

Alison Schwartz, student

"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, student

"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, student

"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!”
