Performing Company


The Young Dance company is a group of passionate dancers committed to exploring themselves and their world through dance.

Company members, ages 7-18, take weekly classes and rehearse on Saturdays, September through May. The company frames its annual season around a theme that immerses dancers in artistic inquiry and produces high-quality, innovative performances. Dancers work with professional artists to investigate and collaborate on choreography relative to the selected theme. Their work is presented in venues throughout the year and in a season finale concert each Spring.


To join the company, register for any Young Dance class as well as the Company option corresponding to the age of the dancer. If you’ve never danced before, don’t worry! Company pieces and all Young Dance classes are structured for students of all ages and abilities.


The 2022–23 season, Radically One (Together), features exciting new works created by Young Dance Teaching Artists Blake Nellis, Margaret Ogas, and Aneka McMullen. Each artist will bring their unique style and creative process as they develop a piece related to this year’s theme.
