Elite Dance Centre. Amazing dance is just the beginning.
Founded in 2004, Elite Dance Centre was founded on the basis of superior dance training, personal growth, celebrating student accomplishment and a commitment to lifelong learning.
Elite's founders, Robert and Tonya Leduc, are both highly trained professionals, specially certified in dance performance and dance pedagogy along with Bachelor of Education and Master of Science (Kinesiology) certifications.
Their goal was to create a program where students could work to harness their full potential, learn valuable life skills, develop as positive members of their community whilst building a dance skill base that would take them anywhere they wanted to go.
As a result, in its first year, Elite quickly grew to the area’s #1 dance studio with over 200 students in 2004. Due to its dedication to excellence, Elite has since grown, learned and evolved to be even better.
From the beginning, it was understood that there are dance studios everywhere. However, there is a large difference between studios. They are not the same.
We, at EDC, have grouped together highly-experienced teachers who are dedicated to their students and love to teach, we have created a facility that is convenient and state-of-the-art, and maintained an incredible dance experience, which can only be described as Elite.
For over 15 years, we have strived to give our dance families a superior-level dance experience and this is what has made us so successful!
In 2017, we expanded our focus and relocated to better serve the youth of Woodstock and Oxford County, by moving into our new 10,000 sq. ft facility in Woodstock’s east end.
Our new state-of-the-art location houses with 6 dance studios, large change rooms complete with washrooms and showers, a canteen for student refreshment and quiet study area.
But, true to form, we are breaking more ground than before! Along with the traditional class offerings; jazz, tap, ballet, acrobatic dance, hip hop, contemporary, lyrical and tumbling...
EDC’s new home at THE ACADEMY is also home to a music school and academic tutoring school. THE ACADEMY is currently developing its Lifestyle Department with classes in youth and adult fitness and nutrition, physical conditioning and life coaching.
We are committed to providing a first-rate dance education and life changing experience for all of our families: from beginner to advanced, toddler to adult, recreational to competitive, novice to artist. Our incredible, enthusiastic faculty inspires all our students to work hard and gain confidence as they gain new skills and develop into leaders in their adult lives.
