about cyc - cora youth company

Cora's Youth Company, CYC, was started in 2012 to provide additional opportunities to explore dance to Cora's more advanced students. CYC provides a pre-professional company experience to young dancers and increased visibility in the community. CYC works with a wide range of choreographers/teaching artists to set repertory pieces on the dancers, previous guest artists have been: Regina Rocke, Nadia Tykulsker, Shannon Hummel, Kelsey Kramer, and Xan Burley and Alex Springer. Youth Company members also get the privilege of performing in the greater Brooklyn community and travel out of state. The work has been presented at the Cora Studio, the Red Hook Waterfront Festival, BAM Brooklyn Academy of Music, Dance & Company in Harrisonburg, VA, and several other venues in New York including public events and schools.
