Program Overview

Youth Performance Companies (YPCs) are training programs for young dancers enthusiastic about sharing their love of dance onstage. Our vision is to build strong, thriving communities within each company and to create a seamless approach to performance training among all companies and dance styles. Participants have the opportunity to perform in a variety of settings and venues, with the work always meeting high artistic standards.

YPCs are part of Joy of Motion’s Center Stage department. Time commitment across all companies is 3 to 3.5 hours per week and training focuses on a specific dance style. Company dancers are required to take technique class with their company and are encouraged to engage in more rigorous and/or broad training as well — either through multiple classes in the Community Dance School or by joining one of the programs in the Dance Institute.
