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 image of Super Youof 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
