Summer 2020 Youth Classes

**Danceworks is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it unfolds, and during this time of constant changes and new information, we will be making short-term next step plans and communication them as best as we can to our students and families to ensure everyone’s health and safety when we reopen. 

In the meantime, we have removed summer online registration for now. If you are not currently on our mailing list and would like to receive the most up to date information, please click here to be added so we can communicate our plans as they become available.

We hope our studio families and friends will enjoy the videos for at-home learning and maybe even have a family dance party, or two! Stay healthy and well.

*NEW* Rueda De Casino (Salsa Wheel)
Fridays, 4:30-5:30pm | Ages 13+


Rueda De Casino (Salsa Wheel) originated in Cuba and is derived from Cuban style Salsa, which breaks on the ‘one’. Instead of each couple dancing individually, they form a circle and whilst someone in the group calls the names of the patterns, the dancers execute the same moves together, rotating through the circle, changing partners with each call! You can jump into any Salsa wheel socially and you will be welcomed! You can also dance Rueda if you don’t have a regular partner. Apart from begin super cool, it is a lot of fun for all dancers, from beginner to advanced.

Auditions for Danceworks Youth Performance Company

Danceworks Youth Performance Company is a unique performance opportunity for young dancers to work with fellow youth artists and advance their dance technique while working with Danceworks professional faculty. If this appeals to you, consider auditioning for Danceworks Youth Performance Company’s (DYPC) 2020-21 Season.


Dancers interested in the DYPC 20-21 Season should submit a short video featuring one – two minutes of themselves performing choreography, or improvisation, in the genre of their choosing. Videos should be emailed to Gina Laurenzi, Artistic Manager of Youth Programs, by July 15, 2020 for consideration.

*DYPC 19-20 dancers do not need to send an audition video but are asked to send an email to note their interest in committing to the next season.
