About Creative Edge Dance Studio at White Mountain

For over two decades, Creative Edge Dance Studio has been providing fun, rewarding, and challenging experiences in the exploration of dance for students and residents of the North Country of all ages and abilities. Creative Edge's well-trained and qualified teachers have a wealth of professional, academic, and studio experience in the fields of dance, performance, and education. The studio offers a wide range of class options and levels to suit the needs of any aspiring dancer.

For many years, Creative Edge operated independently on the campus of The White Mountain School. In 2018, the School's Board of Trustees formally incorporated the studio into the larger White Mountain family. Today, Creative Edge continues to offer classes to non-White Mountain students. It has also significantly expanded its capacity to serve White Mountain students who can take any number of dance courses offered at the studio and take dance full-time as a sport.

Creative Edge Dance Studio is located in the Catherine Houghton Arts Center on the northwest side of White Mountain's campus (see a campus map). Creative Edge is on the first floor of the Houghton Art Center and includes a spacious lobby and two beautiful dance studios. Each studio is equipped with a Rosco Professional Sprung Floor, wall-to-wall black dance marley, and full-length mirrors. The high ceilings, numerous windows, and natural wood posts make these spaces truly special.
