Welcome from Linda Hurkmans, Artistic Director

As the Artistic Director, it is my pleasure to pass on the legacy of San José Dance Theatre, founded in 1965, to the next generation. I realize that students have different talents and different goals concerning their dancing. I honor all of them and want to encourage their love of dance.
