Youth Performance Company

Our youth performance company consists of EDC II (ages 12-17) and our students enrolled in our pre-professional curriculum.


The Pre-Professional Program

Preparing your dancer

Emotions Dance Studio offers a pre-professional curriculum for the more serious dancer. The program is designed to offer technique, artistic development, and the tools needed to succeed in a college or arts program, as well as in the professional arts world. Dancers ages 7 and older are eligible for this program based on audition and/or director recommendation.

Dancers in this program are required to take classes in:

  • Ballet

  • Jazz

  • Modern

  • Tap

  • Contemporary

Dancers who participate in this program will have multiple performance opportunities throughout the year in parades, at festivals, and with our resident professional dance company, Emotions Dance Co. Dancers can also submit solos and/or duets to local and state competitions upon director approval.
