Getting Started

When can I register my child for dance classes?

ANYTIME! Our dance season runs from September through May BUT it is NEVER too late to join us! You can enroll your dancer in recreational classes at ANY point throughout the year as long as there is available space in their desired class! This can be done online or in person at our front desk during office hours.

What age groups do you cater to at The Edge Amarillo?

From as young as 2 years of age through adult!

Can students participate in more than one style of dance?

Absolutely! For our young dancers, ages 3-5, many of our classes are “Combo Classes” meaning for the duration of the hour your child will get to participate in two different styles of dance. For dancers age 5+ our classes focus on 1 style of dance for the entire class session, BUT you are welcome to enroll in as many classes as you desire AND we offer a discount on each class you enroll in after the first class!

Are there any prerequisites or skill levels required for certain classes?

Most recreational classes require NO experience at all and are perfectly geared for beginners! However, our acro classes are leveled, so to determine where your dancer would fit in best please read the class descriptions on the parent portal prior to registering because various skills are required for each level after our beginner/Level 1 Acro classes.  Additionally our Landance Ballet Track (LBT) classes require instructor placement so please speak to our front desk on how to make this happen if you/your dancer has interest in our Ballet Track program. 

I'm not sure what type of dance my child would like, can they come try multiple classes before enrolling?

YES! Your dancer can try each class offered for their age once before you decide which one is best for your child!

What should my child bring to their dance class?

Nothing special is required, but we encourage you to send your dancer with a drink that is labeled because we generally take a short break or two where our dancers have the opportunity to hydrate!

What is the Dress Code?

Most of our classes allow you to wear whatever is comfortable to move around in ( ie: athletic wear or dance apparel). However, ballet Technique has a strict dress code of pink tights with a back seam and a specified leotard! If your child is enrolled in a class, your teacher will inform you type and color of shoes required for performances.

Do you offer adult dance classes or programs?

Absolutely! Our adult class styles may vary, but we always have at least a few options to pick from! Check out our dance portal for what styles, days, and times we have available for adults!

Performance Opportunities

Will my child get to perform?

YES! We have two recitals a year (one in December and one in June!)

Can I stay and watch class?

Due to limited space in our lobby, and wanting to foster an environment where dancers can focus on the tasks at hand without distractions, parents are not permitted to stay and watch classes. We do offer a live camera feed you can access on your smart phone, computer or tablet by logging in securely to our system for studios A, B, C and D. 

What kind of performances or recitals does the studio organize?

We give our dancers TWO opportunities to perform on the BIG stage throughout the dance year, a Winter recital in December and an End of Year recital in early June!


What opportunities are there for advanced dancers at the studio?

Our competitive program is designed to challenge dancers that are looking to advance in their dance ability and our competitive program is available as a “part-time” and “full time” opportunity!

How does the competitive program work, and how can my child join?

Our competition program has two different divisions, Part-Time and Full-Time. The Full-Time team competes in 4-5 regional competitions that require some traveling and requires more time dedication throughout the week in rehearsals. The Part-Time team has NO travel requirements and competes in 2-3 regional competitions in Amarillo and is a lesser time commitment throughout the week. Competition team is a commitment that runs from August/September through June. We generally have an in-person interest meeting every Summer which is a great opportunity to get a complete breakdown of what it means to be a competitive dancer, but you are also always welcome to stop by our front desk or send an email with any questions!
