LDC SELECT GROUP(S)
We have decided to include three LDC groups this year to give dancers around the community a chance to train and perform onstage together. Dancers from throughout the community will come together to rehearse to learn choreography, train, and pull together routine(s) under the leadership of selected choreographers. Styles for 2022 will include the styles of Contemporary, Street Jazz and Hip Hop. We are encouraging dancers AND choreographers to get involved in the dance community this year even more. Please check out our "WHERE TO TRAIN" page to see what other opportunities are available. Lynchburg Tap Project is another community group where dancers from all over can join and perform together as well as the Kyla Hull Gift of Dance Scholarship that is holding auditions Friday, August 26th.
