The Youth Division program builds on the foundation students received in the Children’s Division. In the Youth Division, students are exposed to additional forms of dance, and an increase in classes to allow students to enhance their training. Students have several performance opportunities during the year, as well as being able to participate in master classes and our summer intensive.

Students should contact the front desk to make arrangements to attend a placement class. Following the class the instructor will notify each student of the best level to join. After the placement class students may register at the front desk. Students typically spend an average of 2-3 years in a level before moving to the next level. The director will inform a student when they are ready to move up, and instructors continue to evaluate students throughout the year.
Students in the Youth Division are eligible to participate in the Nutcracker and our full-length spring performance. To participate students should attend the audition. Weekly rehearsals are held on Fridays. Youth Division students are also able to participate in our Summer Intensive and performance.
