Innovation + Tradition = Not Your Typical Company!

Innovative Dance Midwest Company Dancers will be enrolled in our unique and innovative I.D. Intensive Dancer Program developed by our Artistic Director Jen Westphal. Company was created for the student that loves attending class and their passion for dance continues to grow… Innovative Dance Midwest Company Dancers will be surrounded by other students that feel just as passionately about dance as they do! This will allow Company Dancers to focus and progress at a more accelerated level in their dance training.
