DTI Directors founded the San Jose Youth Ballet, DTI's community outreach company in 2003. Both award-winning companies have received numerous accolades from the City of San Jose, City of Milpitas, and fellow professionals in the field of dance. DTI Company students trained and mentored by Xavier and Maggie Ferla have become professional ballet dancers in major ballet companies world-wide, received national and international dance scholarships, earned dance degrees from university dance programs, and excelled in competitions.
