YYC Dance Project is an elite dance team that is partnered with the School of Alberta Ballet. Under the direction of Tanja Rosner, it was formed in September 2014 and currently has 34 team members ranging in ages 9-17. Dancers must audition to be on the team and must be enrolled in the full time ballet program at the School of Alberta Ballet (Professional or Intensive Division). Dancers train in Ballet, Pointe, Modern, Contemporary, Jazz, Tech, Lyrical, Hip Hop and Conditioning. Focus is on training and performance. We encourage dancers to find their individuality and strengths by building their confidence and connection to the outside dance community.
YYC Dance Project stays current with todays dance trends. Programming is always changing to accommodate the teams needs. Guest master teachers are brought in on a regular basis.
