Thoughtful guidance is given to every dancer by a diverse and unique faculty that cares.
Although technical classes include ballet, lyrical, jazz, tap, leaps and turns, pointe, contemporary, tumbling, and stretch and strength; most students gain more than just dance training from the IMDP Company.
Our dancers are unique in their maturity; dancers demonstrate respect for their art, their teachers, and each other. By promoting excellence, passion, and risk-taking, this unique program provides a solid foundation for any young person, whether their future includes a career as a dance artist or not.
The IMDP Company currently nourishes the souls of nearly 70 young artists from all over Central Florida.
