Youth Dance Ensemble-Celebrating 35 years of Community Outreach
Our mission is to enrich the residents of the Twin Cities
and outstate Minnesota by providing an environment of dance training and
performance with emphasis on artistic, technical, and creative content. The school of Youth Dance Ensemble offers preprofessional training for the serious student as well as classes for the
avocational and young dancer. The
Repertoire Ensemble, a company of young performing artists, will inspire the general
public to better understand and appreciate dance in its many forms, to preserve
and promote the art of ballet and related cultural traditions. Youth Dance Ensemble produces an annual NUTCRACKER which is performed for elementary school students, civic organizations, and community celebrations. Their MODERN DANCE PROJECT reaches underserved youth providing dance education as an after school activity. This program culminates in a community concert with other youth dance organizations in the metro area.
