Competition Company


What is Company? It’s the best thing that could happen for your dancer to discover 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 be a part of something special and elite!



When are company auditions? 
Company auditions will be held at the studio on Saturday, May 1st:
  • 12-2 pm: Ages 13+ (by invitation only or returning dancers who were in Expand, Jr. Rep, Evolve and Sr. Rep during the 2020-2021 season)

**There is a $10 cash only audition fee and the audition form will be available online one week before to be filled out digitally beforehand.

What is 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. As a company member you will attend dance competitions (at different hotels and locations around Colorado), learn from master teachers and professional dancers, gain new friendships and make amazing memories that will last a lifetime! Competitions provide amazing opportunities for dancers to learn and grow. Not only will they perform for the judges, they will also receive personalized feedback from those judges to help them improve their dancing and technique. These events also inspire, motivate, educate, and encourage dancers to explore their potential through the weekend convention classes taken in addition to their performances!

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 which is built into the 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.
