Dance Code Studio was established in 2010 to offer drop-in classes year round, catering to all graduated, professional and alumni dancers as well as beginners who are interested in learning to dance!
Registered training programs are also available for young dancers, ages of 2-17, with optional drop in classes & competitions. Dance Code features Edmonton's only apprenticeship program offering opportunities such as resume building, educational classes, information workshops and audition prep.
Dance Code Studio is Edmonton's original drop-in dance centre located downtown close to Oliver Square. The facility features three studios and over thirty drop-in classes per week inspired by world-class studios from around North America, including Los Angeles, New York, and Vancouver.
The studio was built on the experience, knowledge and expertise of our industry-leading instructors all of whom have taught professionally & who have trained and performed all around the world.

Classes: Happy Feet Kids, Junior Program and Hip Hop
Biography: Throughout my 10 years of dance classes, I have been trained in Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Modern, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop and Musical Theatre. I am so grateful to be a part of Dance Code and its amazing staff. It is rare to find a studio where you can both teach and continue training as an adult dancer.
In my Hip Hop Happy Feet classes, I hope to teach our youngest students basic movements, how to follow instruction and to bring rhythm into their movements. The more advanced class will be building off this foundation and learning more challenging moves. By taking part in these classes, students of all ages will become more confident and comfortable in their own skin.
