Why should you audition for Danceworks Youth Performance Company this Saturday?

"[Through DYPC], I have learned to never underestimate teens. I can give these dancers any material and they will work through it and ultimately bring a freshness to the work. When invited to join in on the choreography, they create work with more depth than I once thought possible. These dancers are always ready to learn something new and push the boundaries of their current movement vocabulary. In performance, I am always impressed by what they bring to the table; they demonstrate such joy and commitment on stage, as well as a visible respect and love for each other that has been built inside the studio and out."
