Important COVID- 19 Information

As we let go of 2020, we look into the future with hope, resilience and a continued passion for the love of dance.

After closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and the global impact it continues to have, we must follow the restrictions of Alberta Health Services, the World Health Organization and keep the health and safety of our guests, staff, and artists our number one priority. We are so grateful for all the hard work, dedication and support from the talented students, educators, choreographers and larger Calgary dance community. We can not wait to work together towards next years festival.

We are eternally grateful to the artists who contributed to the content of our online platform in 2020 to provide incredible learning opportunities to our participating schools. Our dancers continue to produce amazing online work and ESDF will continue to supply students with unique online dance opportunities until we can come together again for East Side 2022.
