Competitive Dance

Our Competitive Dance Program, otherwise known as “Company” is made up of dancers between the ages of 5 and 18 who have an interest in taking their dance training to a higher level. Company dancers audition and are placed into one of 5 different groups based on age and skill level. These groups practice 2-5 days a week and compete 3-10 times per year. Our Company dancers compete throughout the Southeast and are highly regarded on the competition circuit.

We will hold TWO Interest Meetings to give you a better understanding of our Company and answer any questions you may have. They will be held at the studio on May 5th and May 20th at 6:00pm. If you can’t make it to either Interest Meeting, please contact Nancy Andrews Roque, our Company Co-Director.

If you are interested in Company for the upcoming year, we suggest taking as many classes in Progressive Program as possible, especially Ballet, Jazz, and Contemporary. Let us know if you have any questions, we are happy to help. Email Nancy Andrews Roque for more information.

If you are unable to make the June audition, please email Nancy to register for the make up date in July.

Some things to note about the company audition process:

  • The company audition clinic is not mandatory, but highly encouraged for all dancers.
  • Dancers will be taught audition combinations during the clinic.
  • There is not an audition clinic for the make up audition in July, however, the same combinations will be taught for the make up audition.
  • Even if a dancer is unable to attend the audition clinic, they will still be able to learn the combinations during the audition. The clinic simply offers dancers more time to practice the material.
