i Youth Ensemble | Kinetics Dance Theatre

What is Youth Ensemble?

Our four Youth Ensemble groups are comprised of dancers in grades 4-12. Participating in Youth Ensemble involves a commitment to class and rehearsal beyond normal class expectations and is intended for dancers who wish to hone their technique and performance skills. Time commitments are composed of weekly rehearsals and some pre- scheduled weekends. Additional rehearsals may be called in preparation for performances. In addition to their weekly schedules, ensemble members will have the opportunity to work with different choreographers in a variety of dance genres, perform throughout the year at various venues in the community, attend the annual Howard County Community Dance Festival (a weekend of master classes and performances culminating in a student showcase), perform in Youth Ensemble productions in the Winter and Spring, and have their work featured in the Kinetics Spring Showcase.
