Through the hard work and dedication demonstrated in their After-School classes, DEA Youth Dance Program students are awarded the opportunity to perform in front of their family, friends, and other dancers throughout the Los Angeles community at DEA Youth Dance Day. Dancers from all of the Los Angeles programs come together to culminate the year’s programs in this unique and unforgettable experience. Students receive achievement awards, meet other DEA YDP dancers, and showcase the pieces they had been learning in the program. Other performances include Culture Shock Los Angeles as well as some of our professional dance community partners.
