Advanced Applause Dance Company (Fall 2019)

Dance for Teens

Ages: 7th-12th Grade


The Applause Dance Company is a pre-professional training program for the aspiring young dancer. Whether your goal is to dance on Broadway in "Hamilton," or for Lady Gaga on tour, our diverse curriculum aims to develop the truly well-rounded performer. Each dancer in both Advanced and Intermediate programs is challenged with cutting edge choreography in dance styles ranging from hip hop and funk to contemporary and commercial jazz. Jazz and ballet fundamentals are taught with skill and ease by our distinguished staff. The weekly three-hour intensives instill perseverance, responsibility and discipline while giving each dancer the confidence and self-esteem needed to stand out from the crowd--or at that next big audition. Each term culminates in an exclusive dance company showcase. Please call or email to schedule your audition today.
