The company was founded by Narissa Fell–Wescott in June of 2018 with the mission to explore various styles of dance and relay a message or story through artistic movement. The company aims to entertain audience members of all ages with an impactful message and give back to the dance community! 
Throughout its’ first few years, the company premiered work at various showcases, such as; Convergence, Artistry Unfolded, The Village, Dance Exposure, and The Pocono Great Talent Event, as well as, performed as the opening act for Penn State’s THON 2019. AEDC has produced four main shows: “The Dream” fall 2018, “Merge” spring of 2019,  “Act to Change" fall of 2021 and “Serenity” fall of 2022.

They continue to reach out to numerous schools, studios, and other dance companies with their skills, talent, and passion for the art of dance. 
In the summer of the pandemic of 2020, Artistic Edge embarked on a new event entitled “Dance the Edge” Dance Competition. This competition was for students of all ages and dancers competed virtually while being critiqued and adjudicated by the company members of AEDC. It was a huge success that we have expanded the event to an in-person competition that happened in January 2023!  Dance the Edge Dance Competiton will be a yearly event moving forward in the future!
