November News


It’s been a busy month for PYD Companies and Crew!  Here’s a quick rundown on what the groups are up to:

Company 2 dancers performed in LearningWorks’ Lights On Afterschool program at Maine College of Art.  During their rehearsals, dancers are working on creating works of their own to be presented in early March and learning a new work with guest choreographer, Emily Dunuwila.

Crew dancers have finished learning a piece with Community Outreach Director, Elizabeth Lau, and just wrapped up another new piece by guest choreographer Bruce Tracey.  Bruce also taught a  workshop on Hip Hop Culture and DJing for the dancers.

Company dancers performed in Fall Into Dance at Thornton Academy, along with many other local studios and youth companies.  This annual performance raises funds to provide teaching artist grants through the Maine Arts Commision.    PYD performed new works by PYD alum, Zack Beatty and co-choreographer, Nick Neagle, and Kate St. Armand of Syren Modern Dance in NYC.
