Contemporary Master Class with Daniel Palladino

We had a wonderful experience with Daniel Palladino! He came to share his talent and his experience with us this month. It is always so fulfilling to have past students come back to share their knowledge and creativity with the next generation of dancers. Daniel trained here in Edmonton and I had the pleasure of teaching him for much of his adolescent years. I always love working with him when he returns home. He is such an inspiration to myself and everyone he works with. Thank you Daniel and we can’t wait to see you again!

Be sure to stay in the know. We will continue to bring guests in to share their knowledge. This is a huge help to the next generation and their growth.

MAC Shop is Live!

We are so excited to say the  MAC Shop is Open! Here is where you will be able to purchase all your MAC products. Whether you need a new resistance band, stability (yoga) ball,  or want to order some swag, this will be the place! We have added lots of colour choices and sizes so you can choose what you really want to pre-order and it will get made. We still have a handful of merch in stock, so check it out.


Two Studios to Fuel Your Creativity

We will continue to run our classes in host studios for the season, as we continue the search for a place to call our own.

  • Usha Kala Niketan – 406 – 3404 Gateway Blvd: This studio is your sanctuary for artistic growth and expression.
  • Celtic Ceilidh Dance Academy – 130 – 6325 Gateway Blvd: Where creativity knows no bounds.

Be sure to check the website often. We continue to add new programs and new events to help you get the most out of your training!

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or any ideas of how we can make improvements.

Warm regards,
