Iron Street Dance Company
The members of Iron Street Dance Company (ISDC) are exemplary performers both on and off stage. These students audition for their spot in the company and are held to the highest standards at CTA. They are an established team of individuals who are required to enroll in one ballet and tap class along with the ISDC class time. Additionally ISDC members are required to audition for two SCT shows every year, as well as take part in all of the outreach programs CTA has partnered with. They are considered leaders at CTA and practice encouraging mindful techniques both in class time and outside of class time.
My name is Anna Gutierrez, and I’m a Senior at Salina Central High School. My favorite class at CTA is PBT, because of all the technique I gain. ISDC Means a lot to me. I’ve been a member since 8th grade. It has always been a safe space for me to clear my head and do what I love. I’m really excited to be Captain again for my last year.
