EDC’s Competitive Elite Team is the perfect solution for your child.

EDC is committed to excellence. We believe (and know) that dance is indeed a sport!

The definition of a sport is, “an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment”. Without question, dance is a sport that meets these criteria. After all, dance requires vast physical exertion and skill; most certainly it is highly competitive. The popularity of shows like “Dancing With The Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance” demonstrates that, for millions of viewers, dance is a sport; a sport as demanding as football, basketball, soccer, and hockey. A sport that demands training, vast amounts of hard work and dedication.


Miss Colleen’s Elite Competitive Team is committed to excellence. At EDC, not only are you training to be THE BEST YOU, but you are training with the BEST. What sets EDC’s instructors apart from other dance schools is their collegiate training and industry experience. Our staff has not only trained with some of the top master trainers in the dance field but have also had professional experience in the working world of dance.

Our competitive Dance Team starts at the mini-age level (age 6) and goes through to the Elite Competitive level (to age 20)


At EDC we do not ask for your child to audition solely in the physical sense.

We ask that they demonstrate much more than that. We test their knowledge of dance vocabulary, we look to see how quickly they learn the choreography that is being taught to them. But mostly, we look for the patience and passion that is required to become a skilled and excellent dancer. A skilled dancer and instructor like Miss Lauren Laperle- Greco. Miss Lauren has been a student, a champion, a professional performer/choreographer for over 30 years! She is a teacher like no other and we ask that your child take one of her classes in Ballet, Jazz or Tap. She will evaluate and place your child in a class that is both level and age appropriate. Indeed, it is NEVER our intention to first break a dancer down so we can then begin to build them up. It is ALWAYS our goal to engage in positive enforcement and a dance education which will heighten their self-esteem to a height that they never could have imagined.

The late great football coach, Vince Lombardi, once said, “Fear makes cowards of us all”. At the EDC studio, we are never afraid. On the contrary, we teach our dancers to be bold and brave as they strive to play the SPORT called DANCE.


Elite is thrilled to be able to offer this to our students. Being a part of the Elite Team, your child will not just perform in the end of the year dance recital but participate in 3 local dance competitions and a national dance competition in the summer. At these events the girls learn how to perform on a professional level, respect each other as artists and support one another in their highs and lows of dance. At Elite every child is a star, and with the proper guidance, your child will be able to build their technical foundation and learn how to soar!
