Outreach

Dance Jubilee!
Join us in Augest each year 10am to 3 pm on the Saturday before our season begins for our annual Dance Jubilee! Come enjoy a day of FREE dance classes and find out what EDDA is all about! Family and friends... Everyone is welcome for the entire day. 

Community
El Dorado Dance Academy contributes to the community by performing at local venues such as convalescent homes and the county fair, offering classes specially geared to dancers with disabilities, and providing scholarships and fee waivers to committed students with special financial circumstances. In addition, every August EDDA hosts an Open House/ Dance Jubilee! In which a day of all free, open level dance classes are offered for the community! Participation in Community Cleanup and Recycle Days, performing for fundraisers, festivals, galas, school Holiday Season assemblies and the El Dorado Hills Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony are dance engagements in the local community that are all part of EDDA's Outreach agenda. 

Birthday Parties!
El Dorado Dance Academy arranges dance birthday parties! Either have the party in our studio (no clean-up for you!) or one of our instructors can come to your venue and have the party moving in no-time! Call for more details.

Dance on the Move Outreach
El Dorado Dance Academy has implemented its Dance On the Move program at every school in the Buckeye Union School Disctict since 2004. EDDA is proud to help bring dance and art-based education back into the public schools and looks to expand this mission in the coming years. 

EDDA had a terrific year implementing a dance program at Lake Forest Elementary school in El Dorado Hills. The program offers dance classes to the entire school, culminating in a showcase for the parents, staff and community. We look forward to continuing this great program for years to come!

Are you a daycare provider or school looking for fun and unique activites for your students? El Dorado Dance Academy's 'Dance on the Move' program may be just the thing you are looking for. Call and arrange for one of our instructors to come to your school to teach an initial FREE half hour dance lesson, and awaken young minds to the art and fun that dance can offer!

Styles include: Creative Movement, Ballet, Hippitee-Hop, Musical Theatre and Hip-Hop/Jazz. If interest exists, El Dorado Dance Academy instructors are available for regularly scheduled visits to your facility, bringing dance to you! Dance On the Move is an Outreach program at minimal cost to participants in an effort to keep art and dance education in our El Dorado County schools.

Field Trips
One of our goals at El Dorado Dance Academy is to expose our students to a broad spectrum of dance and arts related showings from local, national and international artists. When a great art exhibit or performance comes through Northern California we organize field trips for the students and parents. Look for details in our newsletter.

Dancers with Disabilities
Interested students who are physically or developmentally disabled are welcome to enroll in special classes offered three times per year in four week sessions (September, November and January). Dancers with Disabilities was created specifically for students with special needs. If enrollment numbers and interest exists, Dancers with Disabilities can opt to participate in the El Dorado Dance Academy Summer Concert at the end of June.
