July Studio Spotlight: Dance Soul

Dance Soul studio

Dance Soul Inc., located in Stony Plain Alberta, is part of a vibrant dance community in the Parkland Region! In addition to its wonderful Preschool, Performance and Adult programs, Dance Soul is the only studio outside of the Edmonton area to offer a Competitive and Pre-Professional program.

The studio offers over 90 classes weekly to over 300 students while keeping class sizes small. Every program offers jazz, tap, ballet, theatre jazz and hip hop. The Performance program also has Jazz Technique, Contemporary, Lyrical and Acro, while the Competitive Program offers all the above listed classes plus Jumps and Turns, Modern, Pointe and RAD exam work. The studio also offers a Pre-Professional scholarship program which allows students to study all forms of dance while gaining experience as a choreographer, attending auditions and learning the ins and outs of the business. Also available is a stellar Teaching Training Program which has allowed many Dance Soul alumni to be hired throughout the province!

The 2011-12 season was one of many highlights which included hosting Broadway Connection teachers from the current tours of Wicked, Stomp and Beauty and the Beast. Dance Soul attended three conventions and seven competitions winning many of the high score awards. Along with their choreographers, students earned over $9000 this season which will go to furthering their dance training.

The studio also participated in a number of local events including the opening ceremonies of the Alberta Winter Games and most recently the opening ceremonies of Stony Plain’s Canada Day celebrations.

The summer months haven’t slowed this studio down as they travel to New York City next week to train at the Broadway Dance Centre, take the Rockette Experience, attend musicals and tour the home of all dance! On July 27th, Dance Soul is hosting another Broadway Connection Workshop with instructors from the musical Mary Poppins. August will be spent moving into a new studio space (with three spacious studios, air conditioning, and marley floors) as well as hosting a Jersey Boys Workshop and the annual Summer Intensive!

The 2012/13 season is going to be just as fantastic! Competitive dancers from the studio will travel to St. Petersburg, Russia for a 10-day ballet intensive and cultural study, Dance Soul will continue to host musical workshops (coming up is Rock of Ages!), and the instructors and students will continue their training at various conventions as well as trips to New York City and Los Angeles. 

Looks like this studio has an exciting year ahead!
