Urbanity Underground (UU) is Urbanity's second company comprised of highly trained and skilled dancers, who are working or pursuing degrees in non-performance fields and industries. A competitive program, UU provides these dancers with opportunities to participate in creative processes, work with nationally renowned artists, and perform publicly. Our dancers are tech specialists, HR and marketing professionals, medical students, nurses, lawyers, financial analysts, dance teachers, and physical therapists. Urbanity Underground is brimming with heart, human connection, professionalism, and terrific creation. Dancers also have the option to apply for choreographic opportunities within the company.
This program is designed for talented high school students ages 14+ who are interested in pursuing dance as a career. This pre-professional group performs separately and alongside Urbanity’s Professional Company, providing each dancer with the invaluable experience of learning the discipline, fortitude, and dedication that is required to be a member of a professional company. Graduates of Urbanity’s Junior Apprentices have been accepted to and attended many of the most prestigious dance training programs in the country including Julliard, Boston Conservatory, University of Arizona, University of Michigan, Bennington College, and Alonzo King's LINES.
