Edge Performing Arts
Edge Performing Arts has been a dream of its founders for many years. Edge Performing Arts welcomes dancers from all backgrounds, all dance studios and schools, and all body types to be part of our program. Our job as dance professionals is to foster and help make dancer’s dreams a reality… no matter who you are!
Today’s world places too much emphasis on body image and physical standards. The dance world is changing, and (luckily) the industry is recognizing that talented dancers come in all shapes and sizes.
While physical strength, endurance, and taking good care of your overall health and well-being are important – and part of our program – a dancer will never be turned away from EPA because of their body type.
Our program is based on a number of foundational beliefs
A belief that diversity is key for a dancer to be successful.
Auditions in the dance industry frequently require dancers to “freestyle” dance, to learn choreography quickly and then retain it, to have a certain performance quality, and to have a solid technical foundation in multiple styles.
Dancers who are properly prepared and have received diverse training are the ones who stand out, and are most successful in whatever their dance future holds.
Building a level of confidence within the individual.
In dance, or any other aspect of life, a person with confidence will shine.
For the staff at Edge Performing Arts, it’s extremely important to not only provide them with the technique they want, but to also build a dancer up and provide them with the knowledge and confidence they need to be successful!
Our dance program was built around choices.
For us, it is important for dancers and parents to have options, so that a quality program will fit into their schedules and needs.
Each level within our program provides multiple choices for as much or as little training as the dancer wants, and is designed to work as a stand-alone training program, or to compliment a dancer’s existing dance program.
