Est. 1992 in Davis, California

Meet the Applegate Dance Company

Known in the greater Sacramento area for providing professional looking shows with an army of amateur dancers. The company aims to give young performers the chance to experience the magic of being in a top notch show. Dancers are involved  in the whole artistic process including choreography, costume and scenery design.

In addition to producing its own large scale production each season ADC also attends 1-4 dance competitions a year, made possible by these amazing supporters. Check out our upcoming performances, and get a snapshot of productions we have performed in the past.

ADC brings in a collection of professional male ballet dancers each season giving its company dancers the rare opportunity to learn from and share the stage with professional dancers. This not only ignites our young artists passion but also helps them to reach new technical and artistic heights.  We also teach our young dancers the joy of giving through their art. Each year ADC donates 150-200 tickets to at risk groups.


Auditions for Applegate Dance Company are held each late August or early September. Dancers must be at least 12 years of age in order to audition and female dancers must be on pointe. Each year between 18-32 dancers are selected for the upcoming season. We are honored by our current company and our past rosters of our dancers.

Applegate Dance Company was founded in 1992 by Lisa Applegate- Zimanyi and is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Held late August or Early September. Auditions determine the 18-32 dances for the upcoming season.


Many thanks to these sponsors - without whom so much would have been undoable.
