ESD FAMILY LOGIN
"My daughter has developed strong technique and the students are taught discipline and structure while instilling a love of dance through regular classes, exam preparation and competition for those who choose."
Welcome to Evolutions School of Dance
Our ESD Performance Division (PD) - Competitive and (new!) Festival Team - is a rewarding team experience for those dedicated to a higher level of training intensity and performance quality. To provide optimal instruction, students who would like to pursue the ESD Competitive team are assessed by our faculty and placed into the division and specific "Competitive classes" that are best matched to nurture them to grow in their talent and potential. Those who are interested in joining the ESD Festival Team are recommended for the specific Festival Team classes.
Registration into mandatory technique classes is required in order to be accepted into all Performance Division Competitive & Festival classes.
As ESD maintains a high level of technique, no exceptions will be made.
It is an expectation that all dancers who participate in the Performance Division commit to practicing at home on a regular basis. Parental involvement is a vital component to being a member of PD.PD team members are expected to uphold their commitment by attending all of their scheduled classes consistently, additional workshops (to be communicated ahead of time), memorize & retain choreography and practice at home. The dancers commit to the team for a whole season, participate in a required amount of competitions in the Calgary & surrounding area in March through May, perform at the year end showcase and will have opportunities for additional performance experiences throughout the year.
Please refer to our specific Performance Division Team Guidelines for details below:

Summer Intensive & Auditions
The PD Summer Intensive and Auditions allow us to see all new and returning team members dance together, so we can evaluate technique levels. We will make our decisions based on what is best for your dancer, as well as what is best for the team as a whole.
All students who wish to participate in a solo/duet/trio as part of our PD team for the upcoming year must attend our MANDATORY Summer Intensive & Auditions. This incredible opportunity to train with our faculty and guest faculty allows students to get a head start on their full year training, increase stamina, strength and endurance, as well as team building for the upcoming dance season.
(Our Summer Intensive is HIGHLY recommended for ages 5+ even if they are not planning to do a solo/duet/trio as it is a great opportunity to work with new faculty & learn different styles of dance).
