In 2018 we celebrated our five year anniversary and thank everyone who has contributed to our success. We are grateful for your continued support, and wish you a year ahead filled with prosperity, success, happiness, and lots of dance! 2018 saw Artistry Youth Dance work with an incredible roster of dance artists, teachers, choreographers, dance companies, and creatives. Our students also had some great individual achievements. Below is a recap of some of our accomplishments, which we hope you enjoy reading. We look forward to connecting with you in 2019!
