or 30 minutes prior to show in the theatre lobby.
The Dance Company is open to any studio student that has had at least three years of ballet, and wants more performance opportunities.
The Company performs several times a year with a storybook ballet production, performances for charities such as the Make A Wish Foundation, Junior Achievement, Festival of Trees and area nursing homes/senior centers.
The time commitment is approximately 1 extra hour per week for the mini company, 1-2 hours a week for the junior company and 1-3 hours a week for the advanced/senior dancers, with the first performance being a holiday performance scheduled in mid-December. There is an audition in late August/early September for placement only.
The technical and personal growth the dancers experience during their time in the company is a key component of their success in dancing, and the friendships and support gained from each other across all ages and levels is unique.
The cost to participate in the company is $200 per year. Parents are expected to help put together their costumes (either physically or monetarily), sell at least 10 tickets per student to the story ballet production and help out with any company needs.
