Company members are required to take 90 minutes of competitive instruction once a week for one company.  For the competitive Jazz and Contemporary companies, we are also requiring those dancers to take a Company Technique class of 90 minutes, a Leaps & Turns class consisting of an hour as well as a non-recital class related to the style of the company they are place on.   That class could be Ballet, Lyrical, Jazz or Strength & Conditioning.   The Technique, Leaps & Turns and Strength & Conditioning will be offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  The Hip Hop company will be required to take Strength & Conditioning as well as a non-recital Hip Hop class.

Evolution Competitive Dance Company was designed with the intention of providing a safe, caring, motivating, positive, well-rounded and encouraging environment within the realm of dance competition.  Our dance company is an alternative to the highly committed, high-stressed, high demanding dance schedules you see today with so many competitive dance companies.  We believe that the balance of life is a high priority and that holidays, summers, spring and winter breaks are for family time and not continuous hours at the studio.  EDE Dance Company believes in the power of community outreach and giving back to others.  It is our mission to empower young dancers through healthy and positive dance performance and leadership opportunities and to engage them in activities and experiences that will encourage the development of strong character, proactive involvement with their community and effective leadership skills that will provide lifelong lessons to help them succeed in the future.   Of equal importance is the developments of the dancer in areas of dance technique, participation in conventions, competitions and performance opportunities as well as community outreach.  We strive and promise to provide an inspiring environment to build self-confidence and encourage each individual to be the best they can be in both dance and in life!   You will always feel good about being a part of a company that focuses on building our dancers up and helping them to soar!
