We are pleased to announce our next round of auditions for the 2018-19 Youth Dance Ensemble (YDE), American Dance Conservatory (ADC), and Youth Performance Companies. Students in Grades 3-12 are welcome and encouraged to audition. You don’t need to be a current Joy of Motion student or even have substantial past experience in the style.
YDE and ADC provide curriculum-based, conservatory-style training in modern & ballet and jazz & tap respectively. Youth companies include freestyle, hip hop, jazz, street jazz, and tap, and meet twice weekly for training classes and rehearsal.
*Please note: YDE will be offering a Teen Level 1 in 2018-19 for teens who are interested in the program, but have limited modern and ballet training.
Adults dancers (including beginners!) are invited to audition for LEAP!, our conservatory-style training program in ballet, jazz, and modern for adults. LEAP! provides cumulative training to dancers at three levels (beginning, advanced beginning, intermediate).
