What is transcenDANCE?

transcenDANCE’s guides youth in underserved San Diego communities to transcend barriers, expand their ambitions, and create positive change for themselves, their families, and their communities through dance and performance.

transcenDANCE Values:

  • Community – We provide our students and alumni with a second home that promotes safety and belonging.
  • Creative expression – We teach our students and alumni about the power of creative expression in developing emotional and social resilience.
  • Courage – We help our students develop the courage they need to challenge the barriers they face and expand their ambitions.
  • Collaboration – We create strong partnerships with our students, alumni, staff, artists, grant-givers, donors, and community partners. We co-create programs and performances that make a difference in the communities we serve.
  • Compassionate communication – We treat each other with kindness and respect. We listen and help our students give voice to their experience.
  • Change making – We have a passionate commitment to collective action to improve our students’ well-being and success. We amplify their voice in in the communities they live in.

What is the CREATE Performance Group?

The transcenDANCE CREATE program performance group is a select group of teens who love to dance. They meet during the spring to learn dance technique, performance skills, leadership and social empowerment through the performing arts. The teens work together with professional choreographers and teaching artists from around the community to put together a compelling dance theatre performance that incorporates the dancer's personal stories. At the end of the summer, the dancers perform in front of live audiences at a professional San Diego theatre!

What are the days and times of the program?

The CREATE Performance Group meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-7pm and every other Saturday from10-4 from February-June. Once school lets out for the summer, they meet Monday-Friday from 10am-4pm.

In addition, the CREATE group meets daily during spring break along with a 3 day off site overnight retreat in Julian!

Who is eligible for auditions?

High school students ages 14-19 years who live in National City and surrounding communities.

What if I can't commit to the whole program because of school or other conflicts?

We encourage everyone to come to auditions regardless of any conflicts so we can get to know you. However, it is required for dancers to be able to commit to the enitre program. If school schedules or other conflicts are an issue, we can work out a way for you to still attend portions of the rehearsals, but not actually perform in the production.

How much does it cost to be in the program?

The summer performance group is 100% free! We also provide lunches for you for every rehearsal and a city bus pass to get to and from rehearsal if you need it.

What do I have to do at the auditions?

The CREATE performance group auditions are designed to be non-competitive and fun! We will not make you learn any tough dance combinations in advance or perform by yourself. Think of it more as attending a day of fun dance classes where our staff will be observing and working with you. We are looking for hard workers who love to dance and learn and work well with others. Most of all, we are looking for positive attitudes and a willingness to share your spirit through dance and performance. Be prepared to move a lot- wear comfortable clothing and bring snacks and water.

I still have questions!

Great! We have answers. E-mail our CREATE Program Manager at amanda@tdarts.org or our CREATE Company Manager at viviana@tdarts.org

SEE YOU AT THE AUDITIONS!,
