The focus of the Edgewater Dance Company is to provide community education about dance and outreach. The EDC practices weekly on Friday evenings and performs regularly throughout the year at elementary schools, fundraisers, and other community events; the Edgewater Dance Company also participates in the annual Plymouth University Dance Premiere, Arts Alive, and one to two scheduled competitions and at Gilford Old Home Day each year.
Auditions for the Edgewater Dance Company are held in October, and all interested dancers must audition each year. Company members must be at least 11 years old, be in Level VI (or higher) classes, take a minimum of three dance technique courses per week (one of which must be ballet), and maintain good attendance in all dance classes.
In previous years, Edgewater Dance Company performances have been awarded silver and gold medals at competitions, as well as special recognition for creative choreography and enthusiasm. Additionally, all the time that is dedicated to EDC classes and choreography is donated by instructors, Cathy Defregger, Rebecca Gregoire, Suzanna Derynioski, and Jessie Byram.
