Dance Arts Youth Company

What is the Dance Arts Youth Company?

Dance Arts Youth Company (DAYC) is an extracurricular dance program for students who seek more opportunities in dance training, performing and competing.


Who is Eligible for DAYC?

The Program is open to dancers in our Intermediate, Progressive & Advanced Divisions.


What do dancers gain from DAYC?

Students participating in the program study various genres of dance and are exposed to a more fast-paced learning environment. They also have the opportunity to work with guest choreographers and teachers. Dancers compete in local competitions as well as community performances throughout the year.


How do dancers become a part of the DAYC?

Dancers must audition for the Dance Arts Youth Company at the start of each Dance Season (Sept - May). Auditions will consist of Jazz, Contemporary/Lyrical or both styles of movement. Those chosen will represent the DAYC for the duration of the Season.
