There are many places in the world where a young dancer can get formal training, but rarer and fewer are the schools or programs where a young dancer can have direct contact and practice with choreographic concepts and experience. At Stompin, the participants truly get creative training, becoming strong and confident artists, capable of expressing and crafting their ideas into pieces with integrity and care. I was touched by the way they worked together and each alone, displaying immense and unmitigated love for dance and for the community they form through that shared focus.

Major Show

Each year we design a major show around themes and issues that are important to our young people. We hold a Show Call and everyone who attends and commits to the rehearsal process is accepted into the project. We create a professional dance production that is youth focused which allows our dancers to engage in their own way with every aspect of the shows creation. We hold a long creative development where our dancers collaborate with professional artists to create the work. Check out some of our shows here.
