In 2009, 17 year old Alexander Chung created 3 foundational teams (NXG Company, NXG Juniors and Trailmix) that led to the creation of the Kore Dance Studio. He saw a need for a safe, positive place for dancers to move freely, experiment without judgement and grow alongside other dancers in their journey.
This is not your typical dance studio, as we encourage dancers to freely train in all types of different styles and teachers, while also developing one’s own unique movement and identity. Our main style that has inspired our community is hip hop, and we acknowledge that we are guests of Black culture and strive to find ways to give back and educate ourselves in the history of hip hop.
What started with only 60 dancers, has now grown to a community of over 300 active members taking drop ins, workshops, participating in dance teams and growing in leadership roles. We have hosted multiple shows and travelled to Florida, Texas and California to compete and train at the highest level! Each year we have an incredibly diverse student population that we continue to serve the most fulfilling and challenging experiences that create unforgettable memories and friendships!
“The Kore Dance Studio is a home for professional groups, competitive teams, and dance workshops in the Edmonton area. We place strong values on a positive and encouraging class environment, where experienced and beginner dancers can come train and make friends. The Kore Dance Studio is a community of hard work, love and support.”
