RIVERDALE - Dancers from all over the city are prepping for a one-of-a-kind creative concert. 

Sixteen students are currently rehearsing in Riverdale for an annual performance from the Young Dancemakers Company. Each dancer was hand-picked to participate in the free summer program, which even offers them a chance to choreograph their own numbers. 

Directors say it isn't about a particular style or technique, but rather about giving students an outlet to express themselves.
