This group has a long history of excellence and recognition including multiple national titles and awards. Alumni from this program have gone on to be part of university dance teams and professional dance and theater companies. They have worked throughout the business as casting agents, directors, backstage crew, musicians and performers in film and television. We are also proud to say previous dancers are now lawyers, business men and women, educators, parents and much more.
YDC has company class and rehearses during the week as part of the regular class schedule at Miss Linda’s. They learn choreography and movement creation in several forms and work in all genres of dance including ballet, jazz, flamenco, hip-hop, modern and tap. Dancers compete at 3-4 events, attend 4-5 workshops, have photo shoots, and perform throughout the year at venues across the region from conventions and community outreach to fully staged shows through Miss Linda’s and other production companies.
YDC will play an integral role in the spring production. It is a fun and busy season. Students take a required number of dance classes each week as part of their technical training. Strong participant commitment is expected. There are additional fees.
