Performance Dance Company Program

Our multiple-national-award-winning Performance Dance Company is designed to inspire, motivate and challenge the serious dancer whose interest and potential in dance requires more than once-a-week training to challenge their abilities. Students perform at community events, our annual spring performance, and compete in rigorous dance competitions on a regional and national level.

 

Along with extra performance opportunities, students are exposed to a series of workshops, lectures, and master classes by acclaimed professional guest artists.
