MTYB is a civic, nonprofit dance company dedicated to providing exceptional dance
training to the highly-motivated student. At MTYB, our goal is to offer programs that welcome
diversity and ensure achievement by all students. Through our scholarship program, MTYB is able to
make dance accessible to participants of all racial, cultural, or economic background.  

MTYB is excited to offer community classes and performance opportunities for students in a
nurturing, value-centered environment. Please visit our website to view our current schedule.

MTYB holds yearly auditions for the serious dance student wishing to further his/her dance training.    
As a member of MTYB, dancers are required to be enrolled in a minimum number of dance classes
per week at the studio of his/her choice. Rehearsals for MTYB will be scheduled outside of class
time. MTYB will offer master classes and workshops throughout the year, as well as performance
opportunities. Our goal is to supplement a student's current dance program by offering additional
training and scholarships.

Students must be entering the 3rd grade and currently enrolled in ballet and jazz classes. Older 2nd
graders with 3 or more years of dance training must have a teacher recommendation to be
considered for audition.
