About the Companies:

Importantly, each of the companies has its own unique focus on dancers/movers at different points in their lives and each require somewhat different skills sets.

The Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre is a post-modern/contemporary dance company comprised of highly trained, athletic dancers, most of whom balance their work in dance with outside careers in non-dance related fields.

The PTDT Apprentice Company is for younger, serious minded dancers, with two to three years of training in contemporary / ballet, who would like to work with the PTDT while exploring a pre-professional experience in dance.

The Third Stage is a multigenerational, contemporary company, with dancers ranging in age from 8 to 80+ and was created in 1994, based on Trokanski’s belief that Dance is not the sole property of a technically trained elite, but a form of expression, communication, and creative endeavor that belongs to all people of all ages.” While this company’s work does include technical training, the focus is on the use of the “non-traditional” dancer in concert dance and the use of every day movement vocabulary and improvisation to tell stories.

Light Ballet Company is our newest company, entering its third season in 2020-2021. In 2018, Trokanski named long time PTDW faculty member, Taylor Herrera, to be the Artistic Director. As a “sister” company to the PTDT, they performed at several of the concerts last year including Ephemera & The Little Prince and the 2019 Davis Dance Project.
