What it means to be a Not for Profit studio.
You will hear us say it in advertisements, in meetings and on our social media accounts. So what does nonprofit mean?
"Non-profit companies are formed to promote art, science, religious, charity or other similar endeavours, or they may be formed solely for the prupose of prom
The Objective of the Society is provide funding and organization to encourage the growth and development of children in dance and to enrich the dance experience for all students enrolled in the program, in cooperation with the Artistic Director. In Practice that means that we strive to create an environment where there is a place for every child that wants to dance. We never ask dancers to audition for the chance to compete, and we always work with parents to provide as much financial support as possible through volunteer opportunities and grants.
Board members volunteer their time to help run the organization. Members are elected at the Fall Society Annual General meeting and serve a 2 year term.

PEDF’s mission statement guides all activities of our teaching staff and volunteers:
• To provide a dynamic, creative experience that fosters a quality artistic education in a nurturing, positive and safe environment;
• To promote confidence, self-esteem and team spirit;
• To enable individuals to reach their full potential with qualified instruction in an atmosphere that respects the integrity of each individual
Dancers dance for enjoyment. Our intent is to provide a creative and fun learning experience for all our dancers. Our competitive program is open to all interested and committed students, which sets us apart from other studios who often require auditions. All dancers over the age of 6 may participate in the pre competitive/ competitive program including solos and duets as long as they are committed to working hard.
Competing at festivals is about so much more than the colour of the medal. The dancers have learned teamwork, dedication, time management, confidence, healthy self esteem, fitness, discipline, and the list goes on.
We keep our classes small to ensure that our dancers get personal attention from our instructors.
Our recreational program is for those students looking to take dance classes for fun. We offer recreational classes from age 3 all the way up to age 18. Our TEEN classes are perfect for those dancers aged 13+ that would like to get into dance either for the first time or back after a hiatus. All of our recreational students have the opportunity participate in our year end recital!
Whether you are recreational or a previous competition member, we invite you to sign up for competition. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to do competition and we can accommodate this by grouping students by age, experience and ability.
Competition is a wonderful opportunity for students to perform and become more comfortable on stage.
We participate in 4 competitions a year in Calgary as well as of out of town (Some of the locations include Red Deer, Lethbridge, Olds, Camrose).
