Dance Discovery has a passion for dance that will fulfill your child’s need for the joy of movement. With popular dance styles, short-term or full-year programming, and a warm, welcoming environment, your young dancer will find their groove and discover their style at Dance Discovery.

Dance Discovery was founded in 2006 and has offered exceptional programming to Edmonton’s youth ever since, with a wide variety of dance classes. Their focus is on fostering the social, physical, and emotional development of their dancers, resulting in strong, confident young people, both in and out of the dance studio.

Dance Discovery offers a wide range of dance styles and excellent training from passionate instructors. Ballet is the foundational technique for all dance forms, while hip hop is a popular, high-energy dance style that is always evolving. Tap lets you play with the beat and jazz is an active dance form that includes jumps, kicks, and floor work. Lyrical and contemporary combines techniques from ballet and jazz and acro combines elements from dance, tumbling, and gymnastics. Which will your child choose?

Short-Term Fall Programming

If your child is new to dance, they can easily experience the joys and benefits of dance, without a long-term commitment. The 6-week Fall Programs at Dance Discovery instill the fundamentals of popular dance styles with fun new themes every week. Children, ages 5-9 years, can check out Hip Hop Remix, Holiday Hip Hop, Tumble Time, or Aloha Acro All-Stars. Little dancers from 4-7 years can join ballet sessions like Fairytale Adventures and Sugar Plum Fairy. At the end of each program, dancers will perform a final day performance.

Full-Year Programming

Some kids just know they love to dance, and Dance Discovery is ready with full-year classes and opportunities to showcase their hard work through competitions and recitals. All full-year programs run concurrent to the school year, beginning in September and concluding in June.

The Primary Program allows the littlest dancers to start their journey as young as age 3 with Baby Ballet. Children in preschool can also learn hip hop or join a class to learn the fundamentals of tap, jazz, ballet, and acro.

The Recreational Program gives dancers from 6 – 15 years old the opportunity to have fun and learn about musicality, self-discipline, posture, grace, and the joy of dance, without the pressure of competition. Programs are offered in jazz, acro, hip hop, and ballet. Of course, if your dancer thrives under pressure, after some training, they can always join the performance program to continue their dance experience.

The Performance Program is open to ages 7-14 and designed to help further develop and refine their technical skills in jazz, ballet, hip hop, and acro. Students will train in a competitive team environment with the focus on building a strong foundation and developing confidence.

The Pre-Company program is the stepping stone for dancers aged 6 to 8 to put their best foot forward and focus down the path towards an elite competitive dance. This requires a larger time commitment, with classes curated to increasing vocabulary, technique and presentation.

The Company Program welcomes ages 7 to 17 to perfect their dance technique in an accelerated learning environment. Intensive training and a higher level of commitment will benefit poised and polished athletes looking to achieve a high standard of technical excellence.
