Given the evolving situation surrounding COVID-19 and the advice from public health officials regarding the need to maintain physical distance, our in-person Young Dancers’ Program will continue to be suspended until further notice as we strategize how best to engage with our young and adult recreational dancers to provide programming while ensuring their health and well-being.

WINTER 2021: Until we can safely dance together again in person, Program Director Michelle Silagy, along with YDP faculty, has created a series of videos designed for a range of ages to dance along with, in your own home. Videos will be shared on the third Saturday of each month through May 2021, and will include warm-ups, patterned exercises, and improvisational ideas for dancing.

If you would like more information and/or would like to be added to our email list, please send us an email at [email protected]
