BAXco Youth Dance Company
BAXco, BAX’s youth dance company, is a repertory company that performs work by vibrant choreographers who are active in the dance world. The company is directed by professional dancers, choreographers, and educators with decades of comprehensive experience in the dance field. These young dancers are exposed to many styles of modern dance through workshops, classes, and performances, and enjoy a multi-dimensional experience of the NYC dance scene.

Friday, September 12th, from 4:30-7:00pm
Advanced registration is recommended, please call 718-832-0018 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dancers are invited to join a company of sophisticated performing artists. The company’s 3-hour weekly rehearsal process combines technical training, learning BAXco repertory, and engaging in highly collaborative processes with guest choreographers. Company members are ambassadors for BAX programs who perform at a professional level on stages throughout NYC and beyond including: Kumble Theater (Brooklyn, NY), WOW Café (New York, NY) and Dance and Co. (Harrisonburg, VA). The company also enjoys a more in-depth exploration of the administrative work of a dance company by supporting the fundraising, marketing and promotion of their work.
These dancers of different strengths and mixed ages thrive together. Older members mentor new members, and the company constantly learns from and inspires one another while building a cohesive ensemble experience. Dancers reap the benefits of diverse exchanges with other teen dancers and artists in NYC and beyond during through BAX’s annual Teen Arts Conference, collaborations with Virginia’s Shenandoah Dance Theatre, etc.
