How to Apply


Auditions will be held in March 2024. Interested in learning more? Send us an email today! The day will begin with a short introduction from the YDC staff. Parents and guardians are welcome to join and ask questions at this time. Following this introduction, the dancers will be given a warm-up class by the season's guest repertory artist, followed by a short improvisation led by Artistic Director Jessica Gaynor. The audition will culminate with a group choreography project. The day will end no later than 4:30pm. Please bring water and a snack with you.

Requirements: Students must be open to new ideas and ready to commit to rigorous intensive work. Acceptance is based on student potential for both artistic growth and development of skills, as well as demonstrated motivation and seriousness of purpose.
