"Artistry and expression through movement"

Artist Entrance Dance Company is a pre-professional company that is geared towards the serious dancer, with a strong technical foundation, ages 12-18. Under the artistic direction of Ashley Yano and Hilary Pawlik, Artist Entrance Dance Company offers the finest dance education through Advanced Ballet, Jazz and Contemporary.  

Our program is designed to give professional caliber performing opportunities.  Each season, AEDC artists star in a dance short film, shot and directed by professionals on location. They are given the unique opportunity of working in a professional environment and understanding the idea of dancing on film. Throughout the year, AEDC lends its talent to various professional venues such as music videos, dance festivals, and professional showcases.  Every spring, AEDC produces a full-length dance concert encapsulating the season.  Our artists are given the opportunity of dance composition, staging, rehearsing, teching and performing in front of a live audience.  This gives our dancers the experience they will need when going on to dance professionally.  

Guest teachers and choreographers are an integral part of our program, as we believe in diversifying dancers' educations to help them to reach their peak potential.  

Artist Entrance Dance Company offers a very rich, educational and inspiring program through its unifying message of love for the arts and one another.  AEDC is a commitment, with the intention of utilizing time in the most efficient manner, which includes limited weekend hours, rehearsals as necessary and focused training.  Company members meet on Thursday nights from 5:00pm-9:00pm at Evolution Dance Studios in North Hollywood,  additional ballet, pointe/variations, contemporary and contemporary jazz classes are offered for non-company members as well.  Please see the full schedule listed under "CLASSES."
