Transforming Lives Through Movement
For over 25 years, Young Dance has offered a place for youth in our community to grow body and spirit through the creative expression of modern dance.
Each year, we tackle a specific topic in our company and community classes. Addressing it through movement and discussions with our teachers and guest artists. This year, our focus is on social justice and the ways in which art builds stronger, safer communities through empathy and action. Guest Artist in residence, Brian Evans, has been leading the company and community classes through movement activities related to this topic. This month, 11 company members are working with guest artist Ananya Chatterjea, to create a dance that asserts good energy into the world, their hopeful response to confront despair and fear. We are also expanding our partnership with Hennepin County Home School, working to integrate movement into their therapy programs.
Your contribution makes these programs and partnerships affordable and accessible. THANK YOU!
Since 1987, Young Dance has encouraged youth in our community to build body and spirit through the creative art of dance. Our mission is to transform lives through movement. Dance students and company members collaborate with professional artists, forge meaningful community partnerships and push the boundaries of the art and practice of dance. Young Dance is an inclusive, artistic community where creativity flourishes and all are encouraged to aspire to artistic professionalism. Young Dance offers modern dance technique, improvisation, and choreographic skills for any body. Young Dance offers two programs for dance participation, our Community Dance Classes and the Young Dance Company.
