Youth Ensemble

ELEVATE your training with The LAUNCH Chicago

The YOUTH Ensemble is an audition based program designed to supplement and enhance a dancer's training, without interfering with their home dance studio commitments. All dancers must train at an outside studio weekly.

Dancers must be 10 years old by September 1st in order to participate. Rehearsals will take place on a few Sundays throughout the Fall in preparation for The LAUNCH Chicago's Fall concert. Dancers participating in The YOUTH Ensemble will perform in each Fall and Spring concert for The LAUNCH Chicago, as well as other pop up performances throughout the season.
