LUMINARE YOUTH TRAINING (LYT) COMPANY
*Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the LYT company is on a hiatus. We thank you for your understanding!
Luminare Youth Training (LYT- pronounced "Light") Company is an opportunity for young dancers to take their dance performance and training to the next level. Dancers will learn original choreography, participate in photoshoots, dance films, and more. We focus on teaching young artists about the many facets of being a professional dance artist. This is an audition-based program. Dancers will get the opportunity to work with professional dance artists/choreographers and perfect their craft. We work with dancers ages 10-21. Dancers are placed into groups depending on age/experience.
"Much appreciation and thanks to Trip the Light Youth Training Company for providing a positive environment and experience for Michelle to learn and grow as a dancer through different performance opportunities, furthering her love of dance. We were quite impressed with Natalka's vision to collaborate dance with the live accompaniment of Matt Blais and Sarah Houston's Home in a Far Away Land, resulting in an engaging and moving storytelling performance. It gave Michelle a chance to use her dance skills in a different context than dance competitions and truly showcase dance as a form of artistic expression".

"Trip the Light Dance Company has not only met, but exceeded my expectations of a dance experience. As a dancer, I always feel so respected and cared for by all of the teachers and other dancers. The group of girls became so tight and so much fun to be around. The opportunities it has given me through dancing have been outstanding. It feels so good to be part of such a positive and loving dance family. I believe that this company defines what dance should be. I cannot wait to be a part of the professional company because I am positive it will bring me another amazing year of dancing.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the incredible experience Alyssa had with the Trip The Light Youth Training Company. Alyssa met many new friends during this past year which I hope will continue to grow into the future. After each choreography session, she always said how much she learned and how she enjoyed the different and challenging choreography presented to her. Grey Matter was a beautiful show and allowed me to watch Alyssa express dance from a different perspective than the competitive dance at our Studio. She has expressed an interest in pursuing a career in dance. TTL offered her this experience of additional training and performance component".
