Performing Company is for beginning to intermediate dancers K-12th grade who love to perform and want more than a weekly class experience. Dancers will grow artistically in the genres of ballet, jazz, hip hop, and tumbling.

This is a great fit for:

      • Dancers who want to do it all and participate in other organized teams like soccer, swimming, etc.
      • Dancers who want to participate in school plays, choir, band, etc that may take them away from dance a few times throughout the year.
      • Performing Company is divided into teams based on ability level.

Attendance Expectation:

We believe the discipline of dance training gives young people a better understanding of commitment through learning, experiencing the spirit of teamwork, and discovering what they can accomplish through hard work. Company dancers are expected to have at least 90% attendance at all classes and rehearsals. If a dancer is below 75% attendance, they will be removed from performances until their attendance returns to over 75%. Dancers should be on time to all classes, dress rehearsals, dance conventions, competitions and performances.
