The Steffi Nossen Dance Company is the school’s premiere ensemble for pre-professional dancers. Company members are selected from our most technically advanced dancers in the Master Class program through an audition in the Spring. Dancers are trained in an extensive, well-rounded curriculum of Modern, Ballet, Contemporary and Jazz and have the unique opportunity to work with world renowned choreographers. The Company is featured in the Choreography Showcase, Community and Benefit Concerts, Annual Gala, and our Annual Concert’s in May. In addition, they appear in lecture demonstrations and community outreach programs throughout Westchester.
Each year, two new pieces are commissioned and created for the Company by current and emerging professional choreographers. Dancers have the privilege to work closely and extensively with the choreographers in the rehearsal process and then showcase their work in various performances throughout the metropolitan area, often sharing the stage with professional dancers. Past choreographers and guest teachers have included Norman Walker, Michael Foley, Mark Morris, Patrick Corbin and Sidra Bell, Adam Barruch, Gierre Godley, Tiffany Rea Fisher, Indah Walsh, Caterina Rago, Annmaria Mazzini, Maxine Steinman and Mathew James.
