YOUTH STUDIO COMPANY

For the aspiring dance artist that dreams of becoming a professional one day! For the dancer that is hungry to learn and wants to participate in dance opportunities that will not only challenge them, but allow them to soar. For the dancer that is looking for a home where their individual strengths are valued, and they are surrounded by a community of passionate and thoughtful artists.

This is the dancer of Youth Studio Company (YSC). 

YSC is our primary performing group requiring the most amount of commitment, training and rehearsal time. 

This performing company is mainly based in the style of contemporary dance, though we do draw and sometimes perform in others styles including, but not limited to, ballet, jazz and musical theater.

SkunkWorks dancers in YSC typically dance between 5 - 10 hours per week and have a few years of concert dance training under their belt.
