Perfect for the new dancers who want more stage time, our Youth Company is the place to learn discipline, time management, teamwork, and performance skills without the added stressors of the competition stage! Believing dance is a gift to be shared, company members perform by invitation in local shows, nursing homes, retirement homes, charity events, parades and festivals throughout the year. In the past 4 years, we have hosted charity events raising over $4000 for charities such as the Wounded Warrior Project and the Salvation Army Domestic Abuse Shelter.
Dancers are given the chance to perform as often as possible and share their love of dance with the community and beyond. Company members have been given travel opportunities to perform on cruise ships, internationally in Turks and Caicos, and most recently, at Disneyworld in Orlando. Company members should have a level of commitment to dance performance beyond the recreational dancer requirements. Students will be expected to attend weekly company classes in addition to being available for weekend performances. All Company members will attend at least 1 regional dance convention and summer intensive in order to learn from current dance professionals from around the nation. Routines are learned during a week-long intensive in July. Youth company members will be required to purchase their own costume, tights, shoes, make up and accessories as well as a company wind suit for performances. Company members must be a level 102 or above dancer and are chosen from an open audition in May.
