My favourite lastest kiwi singer vid, a little dance. Nice though aye :)?
I thought of a great idea for you. Annndd I’m not giving advice, coz its actually for my benefit, I want to watch it!!! So what is it?..... A FLASH MOB. Now I wish for you to stay on the right side of the law, sooo what about the supermarket, Trader Joe’s (who has the best price herbal teas and beer, so my son reckons!!) or even Walmart if its still open!! Students and teachers could get together, rehearse, then perform. Once again DO try this at home and only seriously, do it, if you think you can get away with it, due to current circumstances! Though please if you do film, post and tag me. If you do, I might try and create something here in NZ too, just for FUN. Thanks :). PS I had a dream about you guys the other night and just played the song Dancing in the Streets today while rehearsing! Thanks.
Warm Invitation!

Hello Dancers! 💃💃 We are a team of video creators looking for two female belly dancers to be part of our incoming shoot. We are making this video for a Morrocan musician who aims to advocate Morrocan culture and belly dancing is part of the essential cultural element.
The video will be roughly two minutes long. It will be shot in one day on Oct. 13th and approximately only take 3-4 hours on the day
The location is still underdetermined but it's likely to be near Hollywood. If you are interested or have any questions, please feel free to email me with a brief introduction of yourself and your experience. Photo and work sample is a PLUS. Thank you!

We’ve been training professionals and dancers for 29 years. It’s what we do. Many of the biggest names in the industry have taught at EDGE and are alumni of our programs.

The Covid pandemic changed everyone’s life. Despite all the challenges, we had hope for our future and looked forward to getting back to doing what we do best. Nevertheless, business hardships brought on by the pandemic have recently become more than we are able to overcome.

It’s with a heavy heart we inform you that effective immediately EDGE Performing Arts Center will close indefinitely. Academy at EDGE will close as well.

Our best,
Bill Prudich and Randy Allaire, Founders, Directors

We hope to see you soon and get back in the studio.

Don't forget, studio and virtual classes are included on our online schedule. Look for new classes coming soon.

A Toast 🥂 As we say goodbye, and good riddance, to 2020 our dance world has been turned upside-down. Our lives and livelihoods transformed. We’ve experienced more about leap-of-faith and resilience than anyone wanted to know. We’ve seen how connected we are and how places like EDGE are important in our lives. We don’t know where we’ll end up or what we’ll look like, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. We will rebuild. Our lives will come back. Today, as we look forward to the future and on the past, we wish you hope, prosperity, health and love here-and-now. Happy New Year 2021 - Bill Prudich and Randy Allaire 🥂

Understanding California’s COVID19 tier assignments for Dance Studios

Every county in California is assigning to a tier based on its test positivity and adjusted case rate. Dance studios are classified with Gyms and Fitness Centers.

Presently Los Angeles county is at the highest tier of Widespread. The only exception for in-studio classes are for studios that operate a Day Camp for children and minors that include strict distancing and face mask requirements.

When allowed to return to in-studio classes only a percentage of capacity with distancing and face masks is permitted.

Naturally, this will have a dramatic effect on studios in general and especially on those whose students are primarily adults. We will eventually get through this and hopefully put it behind us for good.

Learn more and check county status for different types of businesses at: covid19.ca.gov

Song, dance, purpose. Tribal dance is used for many reasons: storytelling, healing, cleansing, prosperity, nature, environment, harvest, hunt, peace and conflict. Theme upon theme and purpose that combine song, dance and spirit to bring it to life.

After 28 years that’s a wrap at 1020 Cole Ave and 6300 Romaine St on the TVC campus. We loved being located in historic Hollywood and providing the dance community with a premium facility and free parking to learn and create. It will always be part of us. But what happens within those walls is more than its location.

Coming up, the return of Virtual classes, plus Video on Demand with access to our entire virtual and tutorial catalogs. Details coming soon. Our goal is to be fully back in the beginning of 2021.

Help us continue to offer diverse learning experiences and programs that so many dancers have benefited from. At this time of unprecedented restrictions and our forced relocation, your donation will go a long way to keep EDGE, its programs and spirit alive. https://gf.me/u/yxdq4x

Huge thank you to everyone who came out and those who contributed their time over the past month helping with our close-out sales, sorting, packing, trashing, and final move. You are amazing. Special thank you to Jasmine Vinuya - above and beyond.

See everyone in virtual-land and back in class soon.

Thank you journalist Makeda Easter and the L.A. Times for helping to shine a light on the dire situation facing Los Angeles dance businesses as a result of COVID-19 and our government's response that has had a devastating results. Without better policies from our lawmakers, the situation will only get worse.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
You may have recently read in the L.A. Times that Television Center, the property where EDGE has been located for the past 28 years, has been sold. We have just been informed that EDGE will not be part of the building’s future development. We wish them success with their new endeavors. Their plans, combined with the hardship created by the Covid-19 mandatory closures have resulted in this outcome. Due to the abruptness of this decision, we need to take a moment to assess the future of both EDGE and the Academy at EDGE before making our new start announcements. We appreciate your support and patience as we consider our next steps.

All remaining class cards will be frozen during the initial suspended period of operation.

Keep an eye out for continued virtual classes in September.

Closing this location does not mean we are done by any means. We will be relocating to a new, more convenient home.
