Creative Edge has been once again voted Abbotsford's BEST DANCE SCHOOL - offering competitive & recreational dance classes for 25 years!  At our school there are 3 spacious dance studios with sprung floors and, a parent favorite, “one-way mirrors” so parents can peek in on the dance lessons.

 

ACRO - AERIAL HOOPS - TUMBLING/CONTORTION

 

Acro dance is a style of dance that combines classical dance technique with acrobatic elements. It is a popular dance style in competitive dance and in contemporary circus productions such as those by Cirque du Soleil.

 

This year we've expanded our "cirque-like" dance lessons to include "aerial hoops" along with "tumbling" and "contortion" classes available as other options for this dance genre.

 

BALLET (RAD)

 

Check out this video about our ballet program.

 

Our ballet program follows the Royal Academy of Dance curriculum. All ballet dance students are placed in RAD grade levels and ballet exams are available each year for those who are ready to progress with beauty and grace onto the next grade level.

 

HIP HOP/BREAKING

 

Check out this hip hop/breaking video.

 

Hip Hop dance lessons are very popular, with the types of dance moves seen on today's music videos. No other formal dance training is required to bust a move in our hip hop classes although competitive Hip Hop classes are available for the more experienced Hip Hop dancers!

 

JAZZ

 

Jazz Dance lessons are also offered for a broad range of ages, with an emphasis on dance technique & choreography using music the students really enjoy.

 

LYRICAL DANCE

 

Lyrical dance is based on both ballet and jazz. It is an expressive, subtle yet dynamic dance form which is focused on conveying emotion through movement.

 

MUSICAL THEATRE

 

Our musical theatre class develops jazz skills and techniques with emphasis on choreography where dancers portray character and acting through their dance.

 

PREDANCE

 

Pre-dance classes at Creative Edge are always fun for ages 3 to 5. Parents love to watch the kids through the one-way mirrors looking look so cute while attempting to learn a little “pre-ballet” and “mini-tap”.

 

SONG & DANCE

 

Students in this class work towards a performance that combines singing and dancing - very entertaining!

 

TAP DANCE

Tap dance is a very rhythmic form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the stage as a form of percussion.
