AED began in January 1994 in Draper and in 2016 we expanded to add a Riverton/Herriman location. At AED we teach to love the artistry of dance as well as build the technical aspect of the dancer. We feel through building dancers self-confidence through movement, it will also build self-esteem and self-confidence in all areas of their lives.
AED offers competitive and non-competitive programs, both are excellent ways to build your dance technique. We feel having two programs will give you the choice of the time commitment you are able to give to your child's dance instruction.
In our competitive program, we prepare the dancers for high school programs, collegiate scholarship tryouts and professional auditions. First place trophies are great...but building a technical dancer is our number one priority.
Former Dancers from AED have gone on to be dance teachers, coaches, performers, and choreographers in LA for top recording artists. We are so proud of their accomplishments. Dancers from AED have also gone on to be lawyers, accountants, school teachers, and mothers.....we are so proud of their accomplishments as well. AED is a home for every dancer regardless of their goal in the art form.
We are very confident in our dance program and offer a free first lesson to all new students.
Please feel free to contact our studio director Charae for more information.
Build your dance technique in a fun, professional environment!
