The goal of the Youth Ensemble is to stress artistic process while developing a foundation in the art of modern dance. The Youth Ensemble performs throughout the year in venues such as the International Children’s Festival at Wolf Trap, the Reston Festival and the Reston Community Center’s Center Stage. Our Youth Ensemble is a demanding program which requires a dancer’s full commitment for 30+ weeks of classes and rehearsals from September through June. Dancers are expected to attend all required classes, including technique classes, rehearsals and performances. Admission to the Youth Company is by invitation or audition only. New dancers wishing to join should contact Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org.
