Located at 10515-111 Street between the Ice District and Brewery District in downtown Edmonton, the Shumka Dance Centre is a 14,000 sq. ft. performing arts facility housing four high-quality dance studios, plus wardrobe, storage, office, kitchen and meeting space.

In addition to use by Shumka and the Shumka School of Dance, the facility is open and available for community use (including school dance classes/training; public dance and fitness programs; meetings/gatherings and creative arts practises). Low rental costs allow for accessible access to a quality facility by a number of citizens, groups and cultural organizations for recreation, creation and collaboration.

Shumka’s goal is to use the facility to its utmost potential for training and creation purposes, and to invite the community in, making the Shumka Dance Centre a true hub for recreation, arts and culture in Edmonton. With ongoing and occasional tenants including Rapid Fire Theatre, Pyretic Productions, Northern Light Theatre, the Macewan Hip Hop Club, and Viter Ukrainian Dancers and Folk Choir, this goal is being achieved.

Reshaping an existing office/warehouse space into a performing arts facility was costly. And in order to maximize efficiencies and quality of the new studios, Shumka worked to fit them appropriately and to the highest standards. We are thankful to our Facility Fund Donors, plus the City of Edmonton, and Governments of Alberta and Canada for making this a reality.

A busy place, the Shumka Dance Centre operations and maintenance costs are a substantial ongoing expense to the organization. Its sustainability under its ten-year lease means upgrades and improvements on an annual basis.
