Event Description

Fridays 5PM - 8PM
JHDYC’s Youth Performance Workshop is open to dancers ages 12-17 seeking training focused on the creative process, performance, and ensemble work. Dancers will rehearse in-person weekly with one of JHDC’s legendary choreographers to learn and refine works to be performed live at JHDYC’s Flavors ‘22 Youth Festival and alongside the Joel Hall Dancers Professional Company throughout the season. Dancers will also enjoy access to JHDC’s community Teen Urban Jazz class as part of their tuition and program training.

Dancers will begin each session with an Urban Jazz class run by Joel Hall Dancers Youth Company Co-Director, Heather Zimny, followed by rehearsal with one of JHDC's legendary choreographers.

The Youth Performance Workshop is recommended for dancers ages 12-17 with at least 2 years of training in jazz, ballet, modern, and/or hip hop. No performance experience is required. The Youth Performance Workshop is crafted to reintroduce dancers to training and performance after recent lockdowns and pandemic-related hiatuses across the dance community. Dancers whose training was disrupted by the pandemic should feel emboldened to sign up.
