EDge is the postgraduate performance company of London Contemporary Dance School.

The whole cast had strong technique and style and some of the performers were exceptional. Had this been a professional company's bill, I would not have been disappointed.

EDge offers a group of young artists the opportunity to develop their skills as dance artists in an intensely creative environment. The members of EDge work across media and styles as contemporary dancers, offering an experience accurately reflecting the breadth of the industry and their futures within it.

A major part of EDge's activity is to work with high-calibre professional dance choreographers & an artistic director, touring programmes of original work and repertory to venues nationally and internationally. In addition to this touring, EDge engage in a broad variety of other projects exploring the creative process; using dance film, professional improvisational work or site-specific choreography. This allows further collaboration with dance organisations and artists across the industry.
