Touching the Communities


AZDance Dancers

AZDance unites the communities through their outreach programs which are educational and inspirational.

AZDance utilizes professional dancers from within Arizona and throughout the country, but also integrates children, apprentices, their other programs and those with disabilities into their concerts.

AZDance supports five programs which build upon the company's mission statement of supporting the communities in which they serve. These programs are:

Apprentice Company*

- for performers wanting to make dance a career. Participation is by audition or invite only.

Children's Company*

- a chance for children to get out of the studio recital environment and work with professionals as well as various populations in an enthusiastic, supportive and encouraging professional environment. Participation is by audition or invite only.
