Collective Studios was established in March of 2022 by Jaimie Kopeck, with the help of Dani Fontaine and Bridget Palaschuk. The instructors that came on to teach made the entire dream a reality, and the studio opened in the Warehouse District that following April.
The studio is located at 1363 Rose Street in the Warehouse District, formerly known as Applause Dance Academy. It's at the back of the building, and is accessible on the right side of the building through the parking lot.
There are 3 studios, 3 bathrooms, a waiting area, real hardwood floors, and a lot of cool brick walls.
Our mission is to create a centre where dance is shared, friendships are made, art is created, and a community is built.
We wish to acknowledge this land on which we gather as Treaty 4 Territory, the traditional lands of the Cree, Dakota, Nakota, Lakota, Saulteaux and the homeland of the Métis Nation.
We are grateful for everything the Indigenous community has done for art and dance, and are committed to move forward in the spirit of collaboration and reconciliation.
Dance is for everyone. There are no limitations to who can dance.
We dream of a place where EVERYONE feels comfortable coming through our doors to learn what dance can do for them.
