Winter/Spring 2017

Youth Schedule & Program

“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 West African dance. Our second division is comprised of four pre-professional Youth Companies (Co. 1, Co. 2, Co. 3, and Teen Company) which train aspiring dancers up to age 17 yrs. who are considering dance as a career.

TWDCC’s pre-professional program 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 West African dance 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 Derrick Minter of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and Afro Cuban Dancer Adonis Martin of Berkeley Ballet.
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 (Modern 1, 2, 3, 4, and Teen Modern), & contemporary are required to wear solid colored leotards & black leggings/hair tightly pulled back in a bun or ponytail.
Ballet attire, (ballet 1-3 levels): black leotards and pink tights/ hair pulled back in a bun.

Short shorts are only allowed over tights.
Boys & Girls may wear shirt/tank top & sweatpants/ clean sneakers for Hip Hop.

FINANCIAL AID / SCOPEDance: Tannery World Dance & Cultural Center was founded on the principle that dance should be accessible to all. Through our SCOPEDance Scholarship Program ( we have been able to provide full and partial scholarships to over a dozen students, per year,enrolled in our classes and camps.Families that have a need for partial or full assistance for tuition will need fill out the SCOPE application.
