Why to consider joining Company?

Company is an opportunity for a dancer to further their personal potential in dance while developing life skills such as hard work, commitment, time management, confidence and poise, to name a few……and all this within the context of a beautiful and expressive art form that builds a strong social group in a safe and focused environment! Take advantage of this opportunity for your child to flourish, have fun, and develop as an artist and performer!

What does being in company mean?

Our company is our competition team that competes and performs at dance competitions and attend convention classes throughout the Spring at different hotels and locations around Colorado.

Competitions bring additional performance experiences with feedback from judges that encourage growth for dancers as they develop as performers.  Additionally, the conventions (that often accompany competitions) provide exposure to new styles and ways of dancing that foster self improvement.

This commitment is August-April and calls for required classes to be taken during the week based on the dancer’s placement.  Our company dancers are provided extra opportunities to learn choreography from professional dancers/choreographers. But are also held to a higher standard for attendance and  work ethic as they represent their team and studio.

Who can be in company? 

Any and all dancers ages 7 and above are eligible to audition for company as long as they have been taking dance classes for at least one year in any style. It is an additional opportunity for any dancer who wants to take their dancing to the next level.

What is required of a company dancer?

Depending on the age and company group that your dancer is placed in after auditions, we require that they take certain technique classes throughout the week in addition to a private company class. This company class will serve as technique class and rehearsal time for the dancers to learn their competition dance and is built into their weekly schedule.

What does it cost to be a company dancer?

Once your dancer has auditioned and results are posted, you will receive a packet that discusses the additional costs and class requirements. Because company is an “extra-curricular” activity at the studio, there will be “company membership” fees in addition to your regular monthly tuition. The required company and technique classes during the week are paid as regular monthly tuition to the studio and not included in the company membership fees. The company membership fees will include choreography, costumes, company jackets, a company party, and admin fees. *Please note that competition entry/registration fees are not included in the “company membership” costs.

Considering joining company but not sure if it right for you?

We suggest coming to the auditions, seeing what company you get placed in and it’s costs and requirements, and then you can make the choice to accept or decline. Auditioning does not mean you are required to participate, nor does it mean you are guaranteed a spot if we do not feel you are ready.
