JDG Youth Dance Company is a 501C-3 non-profit organization of young dance artists that exists to plant seeds of growth. Founded in 2006, the youth company formed in Huntington, WV to provide a high quality experience within a collaborative process, using the lens of movement. The company's focus is process oriented, engaging both it's members and the community in the body, mind, and soul of the movement.
Each season the company's members are supported by the "Fox Family Scholarship Fund". This allows the Artistic Director, Jessica Lynn Fox, to continue to grow her vision of investing in the youth in WV, and dance students to train with guidance, support, and mentorship.
