FCFD JUNIOR COMPANY

FCFD junior company is focused on providing exceptional, well rounded training in Ballet, Contemporary/Modern, and Jazz techniques while nurturing and cultivating young artists through performance opportunities and community engagement. Company members will have opportunities to work with guest artists, choreograph for the “Student Showcase”, and train as pre-professional dancers.

 

Students will be immersed in a conservatory style setting where they will be taking at least 6 classes weekly to refine and strengthen technique, engage with different teaching styles, and explore and develop their own artistic voices.

 

Performance opportunities throughout the city will help students gain confidence and boldness as dancers, as well as expose them to their peers within the local dance community.

 

As seasoned dance educators, we will instill discipline and a strong work ethic in a nurturing and empowering setting that will prepare them for professional environments. Dancers will feel supported yet challenged by both instructors and peers.

 

FCFD aims to foster versatile, ambitious, passionate dancers who are dedicated to their craft, who step out of their comfort zone, and who thrive on expressing themselves.
