Youth 5+ Programs

About

We offer a broad selection of performing arts programs for dancers 5 years and over, ranging from our recreational movement classes, to our competitive youth dance company. All of our programs foster the same positive culture and Warmland quality for which we have become known. 


About our Faculty

Warmland Dance has brought together an impressive group of respected performing artists, highly experienced educators, and award-winning choreographers from around the world.


Each faculty member makes a personal commitment to share their unique gifts as part of the deeply inspired Warmland Dance Adult Performance Company. This creates the opportunity for us to regularly connect and build meaningful relationships, feed our shared passion for movement, grow as artists, and support one-another in our collaborative work and lives.


This translates to our students and greater community as a warm, enriched learning experience and ever-evolving place to be-come.
