DanceFX: Talent. Passion. Dance. A not-for-profit organization.

Welcome to the Dancefx Atlanta Youth Program! The Dancefx Youth Studio Program was created in 2003 to extend our incredible faculty and facilities to the younger members of the Athens, Ga. 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 (Grades 6-8) and FX2 (Grades 9-12) technique classes and are required to attend additional rehearsals and performance. For more information about our youth and company programs, email Ashley@dancefx.org or just come on by!
