The School for Contemporary Dance & Thought is proud to present a dance company for exceptional teens who love dance, ages 13-18. Hatchery offers dance training in contemporary techniques with an emphasis on developing the choreographic voice.
Hatchery prepares young dancers from diverse backgrounds for the versatile demands of a professional career, both inside and outside the studio. In addition to studying with internationally acclaimed artists, members will choreograph their own work, receive mentorship from experts in the field, and create dynamic, inspiring performance for the Pioneer Valley.
Hatchery offers creative teens who love to dance a supportive environment where enthusiasm and curiosity are just as important as technique! Hatchery has performed at Jacob's Pillow and worked with professionals such as Raja Feather Kelly, Stuart Singer, Shakia Johnson, Shura Baryshnikov, La Alternativa (Kathleen Hermesdorf & Albert Mathias), and many more.
