About Us

At The Edge School of Performing Arts in Oakville, students are exposed to the school’s high-energy, creative and encouraging atmosphere that inspires them to discover their potential. Established in 2000 by the studio’s founder and artistic director, Susan Kasaic, an award-winning dancer and choreographer whose aim is to give all of her students an enjoyable experience and sense of accomplishment.

About Our Staff

Students receive solid training in their chosen art form from the highly-qualified dance instructors at The Edge who teach the students to discover themselves through such dance programs as jazz, tap, ballet, lyrical and hip hop as well as musical theatre. Proud members of the Performing Arts Educators of Canada, The Edge and its staff believe in doing more than teach children to dance; they want to build a student’s self-esteem from within and develop the artist as an individual.

About Our Programs

The recreational and pre-competitive programs at The Edge are available for children aged three and up. The school also offers three-week summer programs for children aged four to twelve in which children not only learn dances in the different disciplines and experience dancing in the school’s studio but also participate in a variety of fun activities and games.

TESTIMONIALS

"My daughter enjoys doing ballet here, it gives her a sense of accomplishment. Her teacher Susan creates a high-energy, creative and encouraging atmosphere that inspires these young dancers to discover their own potential. Most importantly I can watch my daughter during practice, so I can see how she grows and flourish."

Daniela

"My daughter used to attend another dance school in the area, but we were not impressed with the school at all. We enrolled my daughter in ballet with Susan and she loves it!
We also held my daughter’s birthday party here and she had an amazing time. They were exhausted from all the dancing. Thank you Susan!"

Vicky

Susan Kasaic O'Reilly

Since opening her school, The Edge School of Performing Arts, some 18 years ago, founder Susan Kasaic-O’Reilly has never been surprised that of the vast majority of students who agree to participate in classes, few drop out.


The main reason for this is due to the owner, Susan. For her, it’s all about the overall experience that her students of all ages can take away from the positive and encouraging environment that radiates from her progressive dance studio.


Susan is also very much a hands-on individual. She personally teaches all classes involving students from ages three to 18 — regardless of the specific dance or performance style. After all, she is an award-winning dancer in her own right. She loves to share her personal knowledge and her passion for the arts with her students and their parents.


As a consequence of her results-oriented teaching style, there is a waiting list of eager students anxiously hoping for that phone call or email telling them they have been accepted. To be clear, however, results are not just limited to a child’s success as a performer. Many parents have been heard to remark on the changes they have witnessed in their child since enrolling them in Susan’s content-rich classes at The Edge School of Performing Arts. Students will likely become more expressive, and their confidence and overall self-esteem will also likely improve enormously. For them, the general experience in being involved and engaged in a setting where they can flourish on all levels — more so than in most other learning situations — is all about creativity and the values of performing. Students are encouraged to be the best they can be, not only as individuals but also as a part of something larger. They will create memories they will take with them throughout their lives.
