Education Outreach

Using positive, non-competitive dance methods, Mile Zero Dance teaches kids of all ages how to use their bodies intelligently and consciously.

A Mile Zero Dance residency which took place at Enoch Kitaskinaw School. This is an example of what our Mile Zero Dance Outreach Team does within the school; educating students to the world of dance.

Mile Zero Dance Society has been providing high-quality dance education to schools and community groups in and around Edmonton since 1985, reaching hundreds of thousands of students.

What does a Residency Look Like?

Mile Zero Dance instructors will take over your school’s physical education classes for a day, a week, or up to two weeks. We tailor our program to meet the needs of each school, and we also provide teacher in-service training!

In one-week and two-week residencies, students learn how to make their own dances, harnessing their own creative movement invention and ideas, under the guidance of our professional instructors.
MZD aims for an optimum learning experience for every student, all within the educational goals of the Alberta Education Fine Arts and Physical Education Curricula.

In 2020-21, we are offering schools an online option for instruction, and we follow all current Health and Safety guidelines regarding COVID-19.

What does Community Outreach Look Like?

Mile Zero Dance’s instructors can go out to your community league, after-school club, or even pre-school on a one-off or weekly basis. These classes are all-level, and are adapted to each location and group of students, and are designed to increase physical literacy, teamwork, and creative expression.
In 2020-21, we have an online option available for interested groups.
