What You Can Expect from Us
Youth Performance Company’s classes challenge, nurture and spark the creative imaginations of youth. We are process oriented which allows us all the chance to experiment without judgment. It is about opening doors wide and jumping in. We offer a range of options to meet a range of talents and needs. From beginners to experienced – explore your potential and fuel your passion!
What happens in class? Our teaching artists craft each
class to the strengths and needs
of our students, so each class is unique. In general, our teaching artists use theatre games, exercises, movement and dance to cultivate the development of technique and personal expression. Your student will not be left unsupervised at any time, and our teaching artists, teaching assistants, and staff are expected to minimize unstructured downtime.Meet Our Teachers
Where are classes?
All classes are in our studios at YPC, 3338 University Ave SE
in Minneapolis. It is an old industrial warehouse shared with Cupcake and Art & Architecture. Make your way to the back of the building and follow the bright orange arrows up to the 3rd & 4th floors.
Our code of conduct: Our staff is here to facilitate
a safe, fun, challenging learning
Our teaching artists endeavor to use praise and positive reinforcement to encourage appropriate behavior and personal responsibility from our students. We will never belittle or insult your student, and any behavior issues will be dealt with privately.
