ABOUT YOUNG DANCE
Since 1987, Young Dance has encouraged youth in our community to build body and spirit through the art of dance. Our mission is to transform lives through movement. We are an inclusive community where creativity flourishes and all are encouraged to aspire to artistic excellence.
This year, Young Dance celebrates 35 years of transforming lives through movement!
Young Dance has grown into a dance school, a youth dance company, and a community organization that serves over 600 youth each year. Additionally over 200 young people will dance in classes and in the Performing Company at our home in the Midway neighborhood of Saint Paul, and for every dancer who comes to the Young Dance studio for class, we reach 2 additional dancers through our Community Partnerships.
We wouldn’t have made it to this milestone year without YOU: our community of dancers, families, friends, partners, and donors!
At Young Dance, we believe that everyone can (and should!) dance. Our approach to dance education centers on artistic expression, creativity, and a deep investigation into the art form. In exploring elements of Body, Action, Space, Time, and Energy through an array of techniques, students develop self-awareness and critical thinking skills through dance.
