The school is also home to DSdanse Youth Performing Company. Auditions are held once a year to form the Company. DSdanse is for the committed and focused dancer age 10 – 19. Dancers must demonstrate strong technique and movement expression and be able to work with an team. Dsdanse focuses on dance composition and performance. While dance is the connective element between each person, the desire to be part of a supportive, creatively challenging and noncompetitive dance environment is what sets them apart. DSdanse dancers are involved in the creative process and are encouraged to express themselves with dance as an art form under the artistic direction of Dominique Hutchinson.
Each season DSdanse performs throughout the community and works towards a full length theatre production held in the spring.
