Catalyst Dance Company
Catalyst Dance Company is Project C Studios’ concert dance group, created for pre-professional dancers ages 11 through 18 who wish to hone their abilities and experience within community-based performance and outreach. The group is modeled after professional concert dance companies, and is made up of a Senior and Junior Company, divided by age and ability, which operate both independently and together. The goal of Catalyst is to address the needs and potential of young dancers who may one day pursue work within the academic, conservatory, and/or concert dance field. Work within the Company supports dancers artistically, technically, intellectually and socially, creating connections and immersion in the collegiate and professional dance realm to allow for greater ease transitioning into career pathways beyond high school and studio training. In addition to performing locally and regionally on a regular and ongoing basis, the group works with guest artists and master teachers, participates in workshops, conventions, competitions, and festivals, organizes fundraisers, makes public appearances, and lends their talents to charitable causes.
