DsDanse Youth Company

DSdanse consists of both a Junior and Senior Company. The Junior Company is for ages 10 – 13 years. The Senior Company is for ages 14 – 18 years.

DSdanse Youth Dance Company was founded in 2001 by Dominique Hutchinson as a canvas to shape her artistic vision of using the art of dance as a cultural and educational tool.
Taking young dancers beyond the walls of the studio, each season focuses on non competitive projects that engage the dancers in a social and artistic exchange at a local, regional and or international level.

DSdanse dancers are involved in the creative process and are the pulse of a supportive and creatively challenging environment.
Using dance as a form of communication that transcends language and borders, each dancer is an integral part of every project they, as a collective, engage in.
