About The Phipps Dance Company
Our non-competitive performing company is led by director Christina Leines and associate director Stephanie Campbell. The company focuses on building well-rounded, technically advanced young dancers. To audition for the company, the dancers are required to have at least two years of prior dance training. As company members, the dancers have weekly rehearsals and must take at least two dance technique classes per week.

For dancers ages 9 to 13 years old, this company prepares members for their future with The Phipps Dance Company and beyond. The junior dance company is made up of 12 auditioned dancers who rehearse September through May for performances locally and throughout the Twin Cities.
The performances will feature a variety of styles, including lyrical, jazz, tap, and hip-hop.
