Winter/Spring 2023 PYD Performances and Events

Wow! It’s been a busy fall for all 3 PYD groups, PYD2, Crew, and Company.  The dancers have been working with guest choreographers Jason Berube, Isiah “MoveLikeZay” Beasley, Annie Erkinnen, Lynn Peterson of SYREN Modern Dance, and Kristin Sutton.  This winter, dancers are working on creating original works for the PYD Student Choreography Showcase, which will be held on February 11th in the Casco Bay Movers Studio Theater.  Dancers will then be working with a new group of choreographers, including Izzy Ball of Little House Dance Co, Elizabeth Lau of Casco Bay Movers, Kaitlyn Hayes of Portland Ballet, and more!
