The Edge Competition Team

  • THE EDGE competition team was established in 1997 and has since developed to include dancers from both Crete’s Dance Company and Studio 3. Since its founding, these devoted team members have been performing and competing at local events, regional, and national competitions. THE EDGE has won an overwhelming number of prestigious awards, including multiple ADCC Studio Excellence awards, Studio Spirit awards, Highest Scoring Studio awards, several Dancer of The Year individual titles, just to name a few. We are also a Hope Studio for Dancers Against Cancer, a campaign turned nonprofit started in 2014 to provide direct funding for studio owners, dancers, and family members impacted by cancer.
  • THE EDGE is for the dedicated dancer who wants to experience the competitive side of dance and who wants to take their passion for dance & talent one step further. A higher level of self-discipline, commitment, and team mentality are expected of all EDGE dancers. Through this, we found our team mentality leads to a more well-rounded dancer in and outside of the studio. Some of our members have continued their dance involvement at the collegiate and professional levels, and several have become instructors at Crete’s Dance Company and other studios.
  • Team dance groups are created by the following: age, ability level, experience, and desire of the dancers. THE EDGE team is made up of dancers by invitation only.
  • Our team is led by Director/Owner/Choreographer Tamara Culhane and Assistant Director/Choreographer Tayler Culhane.
