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, get a snapshot from Instagram, and view our past performances.

Mission Statement:

The mission of Applegate Dance Company is to implement its "whole body and soul” philosophy by providing an accepting, affirming, and inclusive atmosphere for our artists to grow, to thrive and to create art. The company’s aim is to empower youth by fostering cooperation, self esteem, self expression, and leadership skills. ADC strives to build a tight, safe, and edifying community for its dancers within so that they can then turn outward and build a better world around them.


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.
