“Dance in My Shoes” Workshop Series


Throughout the year, ESD will offer various workshops to the local YYC community. Our goal is to offer excellent dance instruction at a fair price, not only to our own dance family members, but to all who wish to dance, and who may not be in a position to commit to a full year or session of classes. Please continue to check back here for our monthly or bi-monthly workshops and  classes. (We also take requests! Please email us at if you have a suggestion for a “Dance in My Shoes” workshop class!)
