Recreational Dance

EDA’s recreational dance programs run from ages 2-15 years old. The dancers enrolled in these programs are featured in our Holiday Showcase in December and our year end showcase which is held at the end of May.





Recreational Programs:

Parent & Tot (Ages 2-3): A perfect intro for little dancers who aren’t ready to say goodbye to their parent to head into dance class. A parent is required to participate in the class.
Saturday – 9:30-10:00 AM 

Pre-Ballet (Ages 3-5): This class introduces the fundamentals of ballet dance technique. We also focus on simple progressions across the floor and most importantly, having fun!
Saturday – 10:00-10:30 AM

Intro to Jazz & Tap (Ages 3-5): *Brand New This Season*
This is a perfect introduction to jazz and tap dance. If your little dancer is full of energy and loves to move this is the class for them!

Mini Combo (Ages 6-8): This class introduces jazz, lyrical, ballet and hip hop dance techniques. We focus on a variety of different styles to allow the dancers to get a feel for a few different styles of dance. We also work on building a fundamental technical dance background and understanding the proper techniques of dance training. Many dancers use this as a stepping stone to our pre-competitive dance programs.

    1. Hi there,

      We are having registration tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 6th from 5:00-9:00 and Saturday, Sept. 9th from 10:00-2:00.

      Please let me know if you have any questions or feel free to stop by during registration.



  1. Hi there!

    Someone recommended your dance programs. I have an active 3 year old who loves to dress up in tutus. I wondered a few things about your preballet class.

    1) when does it start?
    2) is it possible to try a class before commiting to the class?
    3) how do you accept payment? And by what date?
    4) we will occasionally miss a lesson as we visit the grandparents near yarmouth. Is that okay?

    Kind regards,



    1. Hi Melodie,

      Thanks for your interest in EDA. I’ve answered your questions below:

      1. Classes start on Saturday, Sept. 16th.
      2. You are welcome to try a class before officially registering
      3. We accept cash, cheque or e-transfer. Registration is happening on Sept. 6th from 5:00-9:00 and Sept. 9th from 10:00-2:00. You can pop in to fill out a form if you are available even if you don’t want to register and pay without trying the class first.
      4. It’s no problem if you miss the odd class.

      If you have any further questions please feel free to send me an email or stop by during registration 🙂



  2. Is it too late to sign up for recreational dance ? my daughter will be 12 in March so not sure if she needs to have the pre requisites or can she start right at Teen Combo?


  3. When does registration take place for January classes? Wishing to register my granddaughter for the recreational combo class, I believe. She is a newbie, will be 6 years old in February.
