Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

At The Edge Amarillo, dance is more than just movement – it’s an expression of our shared humanity. We believe that every step, leap, and turn has the power to transcend boundaries and bring people together through dance.

Our Commitment

We pledge to foster a dance community where every individual – regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, or background – feels seen, heard, and valued.

We are committed to providing opportunities and spaces where every dancer can flourish, learn, and grow. -The Edge
