The EDGE 2014/2015 Schedule will post sometime in November.
The EDGE program blends the fluidity of dance with the excitement of tumbling. The program provides a professional foundation combined with creative flair and the mood is one of fun tempered with discipline. The environment is non-competitive, yet challenging.
Oh, and the Performance Groups dance on the Silva stage at the Hult Center at Dance for a Reason!
The EDGE offers classes from beginning through advanced levels, ages 6 and older. Watch for “The EDGE Performance Group” at athletic events, fairs and many city events.
“In my 25 years of gymnastics experience, I have not met an instructor who has a more refreshing approach to movement education. Geni exudes a rare combination of technical expertise and infectious enthusiasm. She is one of the most sought after coaches in the Pacific Northwest.”
David Eggers, M.D.
Former Boys Director and Elite Coach,
National Academy of Artistic Gymnastics
“Anyone who can get a group of boys who have never danced before to not only dance but to love it, knows how to inspire kids. Geni did just that!”
Rich Gustafson, M.S.
Owner/Director AcroVision Sports Center—Bend, Oregon
“Wherever she goes, whatever she does, Geni creates the glow of pride in a child’s eye, the radiance of discovery, excitement and enthusiasm for the difficult task. One has only to see her command 100 rowdy kids to know that “awesome” is the perfect word.”
Artistic Director, Oregon Coast Ballet Company
“Geni’s influence and expertise is obvious as you watch her work with even the youngest students. The proud smiles on the faces of all the kids shows that they are getting much more than physical skills. The self-esteem they are acquiring is the stuff that makes our world a better place!”
Mary Seereiter, MS, BMC, CMA, RMT
Director of Dance, Lane Community College
Dance for a Reason is a showcase of local talented dancers and eclectic choreographers, sponsored by The EDGE and including EDGE performers, provides a financial and publicity/citizen-education boost for a different local, non-profit group every year.
