Dance Creations was established in 2003 by Jennifer Hansen and re-opened for the 2010-2011 season as an internationally certified ballet studio offering Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) certified instruction. The studio was owned and operated by Miss Jen from 2011 until 2021 when the studio changed from a business model to a society run model. The Slave Lake Dance Creations Support Committee was created in 2016 to enhance the student dance experience. Through our fundraising efforts we were able to reduce the cost of costuming and provide team jackets for our accelerated dancers. In July 2021 the Support Committee became the Slave Lake Dance Creation Society (SLDCS) and we were able to take over the functions of the dance studio. We are very excited that Miss Jen is going to work closely with us so that Dance Creations can continue to bring quality dance instruction to the town of Slave Lake and surrounding areas. Dance Creations is proud to staff instructors who are trained and certified in Acrobatic Arts, Alixa Flexibility, Canadian Dance Teachers Association, and a certified Cecchetti Instructor. Dance Creations offers many genres of dance lessons to children aged 18 months-adult. The studio’s goal is to inspire students to be the best dancer they can be by delivering quality lessons and opportunities for performances, workshops, and exams.
In the studio, professional dance syllabi is instructed by teachers who are trained and certified to successfully prepare dancers.
On the stage, students can rock our instructors' creative, unique, and award winning choreography through confidence and good technique.
Congratulations to the lyrical group "Life" who won numerous outstanding and 1st place awards plus choreography awards during the 2019 festival season. The group also received a 1st place Vibe to Vibe Showcase at Dance Vibe, and the overall high mark for level 1 group at Dance to the Future festival.
There were many other groups, soloists and duets who were awarded special awards and plaques, and we are certain to celebrate everyone's accomplishments not matter what the result.
