Welcome to ZeroGravityDance

 

 

Under the direction of Odessa Wowk, ZeroGravityDance studios, located at 23 Rayborn Crescent in Riel Park, St. Albert, offer classes in RAD ballet (syllabus classes with piano accompaniment), tap (Al Gilbert), jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip-hop, and acro/flexibility.

At ZeroGravityDance we encourage young dancers to pursue their passion for dance while acquiring knowledge and self-discipline, and to develop a healthy life-style along with respect for fellow dancers and teachers.  

Our studio is pleased to offer dancers the following additional opportunities:

  • workshops
  • competitions and festivals
  • R.A.D. ballet examinations
  • Al Gilbert tap examinations
  • recitals

All ballet syllabus/technique classes ages 5 and up are taught by registered Royal Academy of Dance (R.A.D.) instructors.

 

At Zero Gravity, all our studios have been constructed with sprung floors in order to ensure the safety of our dancers.
