The Dancefx Youth Studio Program was created in 2003 to extend our incredible faculty and facilities to the younger members of the Athens area- and it has grown ever since! We host a multitude of technique based, performance-training classes to enrich any dancer's base and boost any child's self confidence. We offer an intensive company level program for those students looking to gain more from their dance experience. The "Company" dancers participate in FX3 (middle school), FX2 (9-10 grade) and FX1 (11-12 grade) technique classes and are required to attend additional rehearsals and performance. For more information about our youth and company programs, call us at (706) 355-3078, email or just come on by! You can register online here.
