Dancers' Workshop's Junior Repertory Company
Comprised of 30 of the community’s most committed middle and high school dancers, JRC members devote their afternoons and weekends to rigorously studying ballet, modern, jazz, composition, and theater, as well as rehearsing and preparing for at least three major productions per year. Their training is augmented by opportunities to work with Guest Artists from esteemed companies such as Lines Ballet, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, and Elisa Monte Dance, allowing them to establish relationships with professional dancers at the height of their career.
JRC Alumni have gone on to major or minor in dance in college and continue in life to perform in modern dance companies in the United States, work in dance organizations, and apply art to their day-to-day lives. Regardless of where their studies lead them, all company members leave Dancers’ Workshop with excellent training in multiple dance disciplines, a well-rounded creative-intelligence, and a profound understanding of the value of arts in our society.
