Young Dancers' Program

Young Dancers’ Program Participants © Jae Yang

Our Young Dancers’ Program (YDP) is designed to introduce children and young people ages 3 to 17 to creative movement and contemporary dance. Dancers are encouraged, both individually and in groups, to explore the dance experience in a focused and fun environment.

The YDP is a non-competitive program which focuses on young dancers’ imaginative and creative potential and aims to develop each child’s full expressiveness through movement. Children are placed in levels based on their age; in some cases, a child may be put in a younger class if he or she is new to dance.

Please join our mailing list to keep up to date with the Young Dancers’ Program news.

Our kids have been coming to the School of TDT for over ten years! We love the emphasis on creative expression. We’ve found the instructors and accompanists inventive, warm, and keyed into contemporary dance and music worlds, which enriches the whole experience. – Lauren & Nick, parents, YD I + III
