Evolutions School of Dance aims to create an open door policy for students and parents while fostering a fun, positive and safe dance environment that provides students with the freedom to become creative and confident dancers, while maintaining their individual expression.
In 2007, three sisters made the decision to start a dance school together, unique to the city of Calgary. With a focus on education, innovation, excitement and fun, Evolutions School of Dance is distinguished from other dance studios by offering an exceptional dance program in a positive and welcoming atmosphere.
Today, Miss Stephanie and Miss Vanessa share the responsibility of Dance School Director, working closely together to ensure that Evolutions School of Dance continues to offer dance education of the highest quality, always putting their students’ interests and needs first.
Regular division classes run from September through June, with a guaranteed minimum of 35 classes.

Why Choose ESD?
Combined, we have a plethora of experience teaching dance to people of all ages and abilities! Our faculty is comprised of educators with dance teaching designations and/or a university degree in Dance. A number of our teachers are certified school teachers or professionals in other areas and have a comprehensive understanding of child development and growth.
Positive atmosphere with small class sizes
We offer an encouraging and comfortable dance environment which allows our dancers to become successful and confident dancers. Our small class sizes allow our teachers to be more focused on the needs of individual dancers.
We encourage all our dancers to participate in a variety of performances throughout the year, including recitals, festivals, competitions and other opportunities that may arise. While we strongly encourage participation, all performances are strictly optional.
With an ideal central location, our studio is easily accessible and has ample parking! We are accessible from Glenmore Trail, McLeod Trail and Blackfoot Trail. Just 3 blocks east of Chinook Centre, we truly are a “centrally located dance studio”.
Evolutions School of Dance strives to provide students of all dance forms with the skills and experiences to become strong, confident and accomplished dancers in a professional atmosphere of positive learning and encouragement.
Dance is an endlessly evolving art form. This constant change must be embraced and intensified in order for the passion dance invokes to flourish and grow. The vision of Evolution School of Dance (ESD) is to generate and maintain an enthusiasm for all forms of dance within children, youth and adults by providing innovative and exceptional instruction, a new appreciation of dance knowledge and understanding, and frequent opportunities of expression both within class and in a performance environment.
