“PYD Company was the real start of my journey as a dancer. All the hard work and dedication that it takes to be in the company is needed to be a successful college student majoring in dance. Dance isn’t just a hobby…it’s a passion, it’s who I am and the company allowed me to dance at a higher level and find myself.” ~Staci, Sophomore, Dean College
