Academy students may audition for the Company of Dance Arts’ annual production of The Nutcracker as well as their spring performance, which are both held at the Count Basie Theater. CODA is a non-profit, pre professional dance company affiliated with The Academy.

Select students may participate in the Youth America Grand Prix competition each spring. This competition is a great opportunity for pre professional students to hone their skills and perform in front of an esteemed panel of judges who could further their dance career. Please see the Calendar on our Resources page for selection criteria. Academy students competing in solos and ensembles have received scholarships to prestigious dance schools and advanced to the finals in New York City!
