YYC Dance Project

YYC Dance Project is an elite dance team that is partnered with Alberta Ballet School. Under the direction of Tanja Rosner it was formed in September 2014 and currently has 50 members ranging in ages 8 to 17. Dancers train in Ballet, Modern, Contemporary, Jazz and Hip Hop. The focus of the program is on training and performance. YYC Dance Project stays current with today’s dance trends and is active in the commercial dance community.

This exciting partnership includes:

  • All YYC Dance Project team members take all of their Ballet through Alberta Ballet School through the Open Division or Professional Division*
  • All of YYC Dance Project’s training occurs at either Alberta Ballet School (Calgary) or Alberta Ballet Company locations

YYC Dance Project trusts their Ballet training to Alberta Ballet School and their classes and training is delivered in Alberta Ballet School’s facilities. This partnership allows young dancers the ability to train in both Ballet and other styles of dance to highest level. Students can audition for the team by contacting yycdanceproject@gmail.com. Students who are accepted onto the team must complete their Ballet training at Alberta Ballet School either through the Open Division or Professional Division programming. Students who wish to prepare themselves for the audition or entry onto the team can do so by taking the Jazz Enrichment Classes.

* Entry into Professional Division is via audition
