“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. ” Cat Willis, Executive Director

Our School:
The School is organized in two divisions: the first is the Youth and Teen program, which introduces the excitement of creative movement and developing dance technique. This modern based program, led by our Artistic Director Micha Scott, is an open program that welcomes everyone to join individual classes in a range of techniques including ballet, modern, jazz, tap, contemporary, and hip hop. Our second division is comprised of five pre-professional Youth Companies (Co. 1, Co. 2, Co. 3, Co. 4, & Co. 5) which train aspiring dancers up to age 18 yrs. who are considering dance as a career.

TWDCC’s pre-professional program (INVITE ONLY) is the only one of its kind in Santa Cruz. We emphasize Modern dance as its foundation for technical development. Our Youth Companies integrate ballet, contemporary, jazz and dance composition in their training as well. Dancers receive a comprehensive, professional-level dance education based on technical training, creative expression, and performance experience. Company members take weekly required classes and have opportunities to take master classes with renowned dancers such as Gregory Dawson of DawsonDanceSF, Sharon Skepple Mayfield (Bessie Award winner, formerly with Garth Fagan Dance), and Guy Thorne of Garth Fagan Dance and FuturePointe Dance.
TWDCC Companies perform in the Santa Cruz community on a regular basis, and travel to see professional dance companies throughout the San Francisco and Monterey Bay Area.

ATTIRE:  All students taking jazz, modern & contemporary are required to wear solid colored leotards & black leggings/hair tightly pulled back in a bun or ponytail. Jazz requires jazz  shoes, modern and contemporary require bare feet.
Ballet attire, (ballet 1-5 levels): black leotard and pink tights, ballet slippers/ hair pulled back in a bun.

Short shorts are only allowed over tights. No midriff tops.
Boys & Girls may wear shirt/tank top & sweatpants/ clean sneakers for Hip Hop.


PLACEMENT: All students are assessed individually during their first two weeks of classes. Placement is made for each child to ensure proper development of technique and understanding of movement and sequences. Our teaching artists decide where each dancer is placed and take great care in making sure they are learning at an appropriate level for their individual success.  If there are any questions regarding placement, please email TWDCC artistic director, Micha Scott: (

FINANCIAL AID / SCOPEDance: Tannery World Dance & Cultural Center was founded on the principle that dance should be accessible to all.
