Our recreational program permits students from 3 years old and up to learn the fundamentals of dance in diverse disciplines offered at EDL. Students will get the  chance to explore movement and create friendships in a positive and energetic environment. Dancers in this program will also have the opportunity to participate in our end of year Gala, where they will receive a quality costume and get to perform in a large theatre with professional grade staging.

Students dancing in the recreational program create unforgettable memories and
develop a love for dance!
