Youth Performance Groups

About

​​Youth Performance Groups, affectionately known as “YPG,” are groups of dedicated dancers who want to broaden their dance horizons and gain pre-professional and performance experience. These young dancers work together in classes and rehearsals, work with guest choreographers to prepare for multiple performances throughout the year, and gain valuable experience that can help to launch them towards a professional career in dance if they so choose.
