Company is open to grades 7th and up.
Our auditions for the 2023-2024 dance year will be held at our Granbury studio on July 26th and 27th. During your first rehearsal we will warm up, go across the floor, and learn a combination for tryouts. We will also talk about what it means to be on a company team. The second day we will bring in judges to watch the dancers audition and help us decide who will be on our team for the new dance year.
Jr Company 5:00 - 6:15pm
Company 6:15 - 7:30pm
Our competition teams work hard throughout the dance year improving technique and perfecting their routines for competition in the Spring semester. Dancers on our company teams will generally have 2 dances per competition (a lyrical/contemporary and a jazz dance), our hip hop team generally competes with 1 dance at each competition as well.
Ballet is required in order to be a part of the Jr Company and Company teams. We do enjoy taking our students to 1 convention to get them to experience dance through a different upbeat environment and learn from industry leading choreographers. Along with dancing, we love to do other fun activities with our dancers! In the past we have taken them bowling, Christmas parties, and lake parties!
