D/3 Youth Ensemble

D/3 History and Company Background

Danco 3 (D/3) is the newest addition to the PHILADANCO Legacy. Founded in 2006, this youngest dance ensemble has been running strong ever since. D/3 was created to give young dancers, who are really serious about dance, access to performance opportunities and a chance to nurture their technique and performance skills. D/3 dancers range from the ages of 9 to 16 and have the option of moving on to D/2, PHILADANCO's apprentice company. D/3 has performed in various Philadelphia-based venues including The Kimmel Center, Penn's Landing and The Painted Bride.
