The Dance Academy of Virginia
DAV Youth Ensemble
Performance group for the students in the Youth Program ages 7-12. Students audition to join the ensemble and attend a weekly rehearsal in addition to their weekly classes. Students learn choreography by the DAV faculty in jazz, lyrical, contemporary, and hip hop dance styles, with the goals to improve performance skills, teamwork, memory, versatility, and motivation to keep learning. Choreographies will be filmed and shared, and performances may include local festivals and DAV events. During COVID, only outdoor venues will be considered where students may safely social distance as well as family zoom showings & filmed dances to share. Students must take at least 1 weekly technique class and are expected to maintain good attendance.
10 spots per age group available. If places remain, a second audition will be scheduled in January.
Ensemble rehearsals scheduled for Winter/Spring session starting January 4-June 13.
For ages 10-12: Wednesday 7:45-8:45pm
For ages 7-9: Fridays 6:15-7:15pm
