L'association La Girandole

The only francophone dance school in Edmonton

Located in the heart of the Cité francophone, La Girandole offers a wide variety of dance classes for both children and adults. Our school promotes the artistic and personal development of each individual in an open and welcoming Francophone environment. 

What makes us different? Our talented teachers and dynamic team!

Quick facts

  • All of our classes are taught in French.

  • You – or your child – don’t need to speak French to attend our classes. It may be harder at first but it’s a great way to immerse yourself and make quick progress!

  • Our office team is perfectly bilingual. You can therefore communicate in English without any problem with us! 

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out or visit us, we’d be happy to help!



La Girandole is a French-speaking association that ensures cultural outreach by providing opportunities for all to express themselves through dance.




Enrich our Alberta cultural mosaic, one dance step at a time.


Respect: We take an honest and decent attitude towards everyone.

Inclusion: We cultivate an atmosphere where everyone is welcome.

Creativity: We are a dance space open to creation. 

Open-mindedness: We are open to new things.

Pleasure: We cultivate pleasure through dance. 

Resource Center

We also house the only Francophone resource centre for dance, music and folklore in Western Canada. 


Whether you are a dance teacher, musician, teacher or simply passionate about French-Canadian culture, we offer you access to many tools such as books, CDs, DVDs, videos, props and costumes.

We invite you to visit our offices for more information.
