About

Welcome to Dance Collective YXE

History

Dance Collective was conceived within weeks of the unexpected closure of the University of Saskatchewan School of Dance in the spring of 2020. There was an immediate swell of support from the previous schools’ parents and instructors to maintain the spirit of “everybody can dance”. Three dedicated instructors and a group of parents were determined to ensure that the core philosophy and the diversity of programming be maintained. Under the leadership of parent volunteers, instructors who still wanted to teach, and a sizeable dancer population that was committed to the new studio, Dance Collective was created in Summer 2020.


We incorporated Dance Collective as a non-profit dance school in August 2020 and started accepting registrations and started our first year of instruction in September 2020. We are based out of the Dance Saskatchewan building at 309 Fairmont Drive in Saskatoon and rent studio space in that spacious, new building. Our commitment is to provide Saskatoon with a studio consisting of a wide variety of dance opportunities at an affordable cost. As the studio is funded by registration and membership fees, we do engage in various fundraising efforts to ensure we can continue to keep costs at an affordable rate.
