With a repertoire of works spanning Bojangles to Michelle Dorrance, this award-nominated ensemble has collaborated with a full orchestra for an evening-length production, selected by Capitol One Small Business for a marketing campaign, and co-presented by Dance Place in Washington, DC three successive years. Ensemble members aged 9 to 25 have been awarded merit-based scholarships, booked for professional gigs and tours, and selected for the Tap School at Jacob’s Pillow.
