WHAT IS THE DANCEARTS YOUTH COMPANY?

In the Fall of 2014, DanceArts Greenville successfully launched its DANCEARTS YOUTH COMPANY (DAYCO). DAYCO developed out of the original DanceArts Enrichment Programs Ensemble and Staged. DAYCO offers pre-professional dance training in technique, choreography, and performance artistry, in a caring and nurturing environment, to dedicated Dance students, ages 10 and up. Classes and rehearsals take place 1 to 3 Saturdays per month (depending on level) at the DanceArts Greenville Studios.
