Junior Repertory Company
The Junior Repertory Company (JRC) is a pre-professional dance company for highly dedicated students who strive to expand their technical and artistic dance ability. This company strives to further intellectual conversation on the creative aspects of dance and constantly encourage dancers to keep exploring the nuances within the ever-evolving craft of dance.
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.
