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.

FALL 2020: 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 2020, 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]

 

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
