An exciting new YDC initiative was launched in December 2011

The Professional Opportunities Project: POP

Two YDC student choreographers were selected to set their 2011 YDC works on six professional dancers of the José Limón Dance Company. This unique project, created in collaboration with the Limón Institute, was given a public performance for a packed audience on December 3, 2011.
