The Young Dance company is a mixed-age, all-abilities group of passionate dancers committed to exploring themselves and their world through dance. Different than a dance class, this time is spent in rehearsal, learning and practicing dances in preparation for community performances. Dancers work with professional choreographers, dig into the artistic process, and make dances together that explore an annual theme. Community performances often include the Walker Art Center, Mia, and others, as well as a full-production concert at the end of the academic year. Company dancers take weekly classes in addition to Saturday rehearsals.
