Kanopy 2 is a pre-professional company and training program for  dancers ages 14-26. Includes Performance opportunities and intensive training. Dance technique, choreography, repertory, and rehearsals make up the core curriculum. Kanopy2 dancers participate in the Professional Kanopy Dance Company rehearsals and may perform along side these professional artists and guest artists in the Kanopy Dance Company Season.

Kanopy2 dancers participate in performances throughout the year in Kanopy’s Season at the Overture Center for the Arts, Kanopy’s Winter Fantasia and Kanopy 2 & Academy Showcase, additional performances in our community and, from time to time, on tour. K2 perform their own choreography in student concerts and programs. K2 dancers have the rare opportunity to study from master artists and perform historical masterworks.
