Auditions are held for new company dancers on an individual basis with Shelly Trujillo, June - summer camp. After auditions/summer camp, the dancer will be placed in one of our 5 competitive companies. Placement is based on the individual dancer’s technique and ability level.
Company choreography will take place the month of August. Dancers must attend all choreography classes, otherwise they will not be placed in any of these pieces for spring competitions.
Our competition season lasts January to July. The competitive companies compete 4-5 times locally and one time nationally during July (intermediate/advanced teams only).
The competition schedule will be finalized by October.
It is expected that all company dancers compete in all competitions.
Competition costs vary from competition to competition and depend on how many numbers each dancer is in.
Tuition is always due BY THE 1st OF THE MONTH.
PAYMENTS MADE AFTER THE 1st FULL WEEK OF THE MONTH WILL HAVE A $25 LATE FEE ADDED.
Returned checks will have a $25 fee assessed to them.
COMPANY WARMUP JACKETS
Company jackets are required for all company dancers. Dancers are to wear these to and from competitions, and more importantly, on stage for awards. There is an option to have the dancer's name embroidered on the the jacket. (We recommend this to avoid jacket mixups!) Jackets will be ordered around the end of September.
There is a required schedule of classes that dancers must attend. It’s imperative that each dancer is committed to the team. We understand school, family and other important events may interfere at times, but please be respectful of the other dancers' time and dedication to the team.
Weekly class schedule consists of ballet, jazz, turns, progressions, hip hop, contemporary, musical theater and basic tumbling/tricking.
Dancers in the same teams may be placed in different level ballet classes, but will be in the same competition pieces. Ballet placement is at the discretion of the instructor.
