The Edge School Skill Academy North Dance Program, begun in September 2010, offers superior technical training and exposure to world class dance artists - the key to giving our dancers “the edge”. The program is designed to offer a complete dance education. Our faculty is committed to unleashing your potential as a dancer, student and community member. We are grateful to those pioneers who changed schools to take advantage of such an outstanding dance opportunity in your community.
Assessment are conducted in the first few weeks of the program for each student. They provide us with valuable information allowing us to prepare for the dancers’ personal training program and goals for the season. The assessments include a review of alignment, strength, flexibility, allegro, turns, musicality, versatility and performance.Measurements are taken of student flexibility, turnout, feet, spine, hip placement and eye line, so they may track their own personal development over the school year.
Students interested in applying for the Edge Dance Program should contact Carrie Robins. Program auditions, held throughout the year, are required and part of the admission process. Please check our online calendar regularly for upcoming audition dates.
The Edge School Grande Prairie Dance Program has an expanding list of potential University programs, auditions, and grants that we encourage our students to research and pursue to achieve their goals in dance after high school. We are excited to offer guidance to our dancers as they embark on this exciting path.
