This elite dance troupe in the greater Vancouver area gives dancers the experience of being in a company, preparing them for a future in the dance field.
Youth Dance Company is currently directed by Josh Murry-Hawkins. Company dancers focus on learning and performing original choreography in a fusion of dance styles and are featured in RPA’s January and June shows. Dancers extend their artistic growth with several performance opportunities in the Vancouver community with parades, festivals, and outreach. Dancers learn about current and past dance legends, makeup and hair styles are learned, cross training and health tips are introduced to promote education and confidence. Company members are held to a higher standard in all classes with a personal evaluation after the first show of the year.
