dance umbrella, an arts education training programme under Confederation Centre of the Arts, is celebrating 30 years. 

Founders Peggy Reddin and Julia Sauvé established dance umbrella in 1988. The dance umbrella programme highlights dance as an enriching art form that helps build self-confidence, create healthy bodies and minds, and develop creativity.

After years of renting space from Confederation Centre of the Arts, dance umbrella officially became a part of their arts education program in 2005. The school offers instruction in a wide range of dance styles, including creative movement, ballet, jazz, contemporary, afro-jazz, hip-hop, tap, and musical theatre. dance umbrella’s vision of cooperation and collaboration continued with the move; it provides students with the chance to perform in works outside the context of school recitals and increased opportunity to work with other artists in the community. Notable collaborations include the Prince Edward Island Symphony Orchestra and the National Ballet School. Since the programme is performance-oriented, the training year culminates with students performing in a gala show on Confederation Centre’s main stage at the Homburg Theatre.

Registration for 2018-2019 classes opens August 10 with classes starting September 10. For information visit confederationcentre.com/artseducation.
