Youth Performance Ensembles

Youth Performance Ensembles

Event Phone: 346-708-1555

Making dance-makers is the heart and soul of our youth dance ensemble program. Students are trained by accomplished, passionate professionals in dance technique, choreography, production, and teamwork. They become dance performance DIY experts, able to individually and collaboratively define, develop, refine, and present original dance.

Performance has an essential role in the world of dance. Performance is where ideas are presented and given the chance to impact viewers. It is where dancer and audience connect. It is where the work of an artist becomes a contribution to their community. We want our dancers’ ideas to be honored and their work to have impact, and Frame Dance Ensembles are where we supportively, thoughtfully, joyfully teach this kind of dance making.
