New Hope Youth Dance Company

(Audition Required) New Hope Youth Dance Company is for dedicated dancers who are chosen by audition. The NHYDC is designed to increase the love of dance providing opportunities to attend dance conventions, workshops, competitions and to perform all over the DMV area. Membership in the NHYDC is a privilege and growth opportunity and should be treated as such. Dance technique, ability to focus, desire to dance, and artistry are some of the criteria used for selection of dancers. There are various categories, depending on age and ability. Pre-Company is an introduction to the dance company for dancers ages 5 to 7. “Minis” are between the ages of 7 and 10. “Junior” ages are 11 to 12, and “Teen/Senior” is for middle & high school dancers.
Some dance company members are in the category of “Apprentice,” which means that they are working on increasing their technical dance abilities. There will be choreography and events that they will not participate in. The Dance Company allows the dancers to experience training , performing and competing in a dance team environment.
