TWDCC’s pre professional program is the only one of its kind in Santa Cruz. Under the direction of Artistic Director Micha Scott, we emphasize Modern dance as its foundation for technical development. Our 3 Youth Companies and Teen Company are trained with this foundation that also integrates ballet, contemporary, jazz, and West African dance. Each dancer develops the technique and understanding of detail to the various forms through placement, progressions, body awareness, and musicality. Dancers focus on their technique through weekly training as well as opportunities to study with renowned guest teachers from around the world such as Derrick Minter of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Gregory Dawson and Afro Cuban Dancer, Adonis Martin of Berkeley Ballet.
 
 
All TWDCC Companies perform through out the year and take field trips to see professional dance companies. We consider our dancers to be outstanding students of the studio, and of the world, through their exposure to the diversity and cultural richness of our center.
