Edge Dance Centre wins top award

The Edge Dance Centre in Midway, North Ryde is one of the top dance education facilities in Sydney and sets a high standard of excellence.

One of its most talented members of staff – Hope Martin-Edgar – has taken out the ‘Youth Award’ at the 2020 Northern Districts Local Business Awards.
Hope is a dancer and teacher/choreographer and has an Advanced Diploma in Performing Arts from ED5 International graduating in 2019.
She has completed her RAD Ballet exams (Advanced Foundation) and Glenn Wood tap exams (up to Level 9). For tap she was trained under Jackie Hepburn and Glenn Wood himself and continuing at ED5 she was lucky enough to be mentored by Nathan Sheens.
In 2020 Hope refreshed her skills in READY SET DANCE and was trained in READY SET BALLET to teach at EDC.
Her teaching approach is affable, bubbly and encouraging. She likes to build a rapport with both the student and parent and create a safe happy environment where everyone feels welcome and comfortable.
