ContempraYouth Dance Company, a pre-professional dance company, was formed in 2003. Our mission is to provide young dancers the opportunity to experience performing with a professional dance company and at community events. Our dancers perform in professional venues throughout Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. Their experiences also extend beyond performance opportunities. The Youth Dancer members learn dedication, perseverance, motivation, and self-expression.
Members of the Youth Company are dedicated students who attend weekly rehearsals at the ContempraDance School. These dancers also take several dance classes each week including ballet, jazz, hip-hop, contemporary, tap, modern and musical theatre. The Youth Ensemble is categorized by age, ranging from 10-18. The dancers are carefully selected and judged through an annual audition process. Our Youth Company welcomes both boys and girls. Our Youth Dancers perform in Disney World, Philly Nutt Crak-Up, Youth Regional Dance Festival, Competitions, various schools, and community events throughout the area. The ContempraYouth Dancers compete annually at various competitions during the season. The dancers have placed first in many divisions due to their hard work and dedication. We are so proud of our dancers!
The Youth Company is coordinated and directed by Gail Vartanian.
