ABOUT FREE HOUSE

Art for all
and All for Art

Throughout our many years of fostering the dance community in Calgary, one thing has remained constant – our dedication to bringing the unmatched joy of dance to every individual who wishes to experience it.

Body type, age, experience, or even skill level – none of these factors inhibit a person’s ability to find health and happiness in the world of dance. Whether it’s a traditional classroom experience you’re after, or simply a new and exciting way to exercise and strengthen your body, we have the solution (and it’s dance.)

In our non-competitive, open-to-all, supportive environment, there’s nothing to lose and everything to gain. Allow your curiosity to blossom and let us introduce you to your new happy place!

Our Mission

To educate – our focus, our mandate, our passion.

To ignite – your passion, your creativity, your inspiration.

To create – community, awareness, connection.

Our Vision

To get everyone on the dance floor.

Our Values

The History of Free House

Free House Dance Plus was founded in 1988 by director Kathie Bernard in answer to a need for a quality, non-competitive dance studio with a personalized, inclusive, feel-good environment.


In 1991, serendipity brought the school to its current excellent, bright, convenient location in the quiet inner-city residential community of Briar Hill. FREE HOUSE Dance Plus operates in a single use, purpose-built facility with 4 bright & open classrooms. Nearby, our students enjoy plentiful amenity space, adjacency to a family-friendly park and a short two block walk to the Lion’s Park LRT station.

There’s never been a better time to add something fresh and exciting to your weekly routine. Our school is the preeminent dance facility in Calgary, with friendly, supportive, and inclusive teachers. Why not get a foot in the door? We’ll be waiting.
