Dance Company is a free program offered to all dancers age 6 & older who are registered for a ballet class. Company is an amazing way for dancers of all ages and ability levels to get the chance to work together, learn from each other, and for a team bond that will last a lifetime. Company dancers will also be offered several other performance opportunities experiences besides just the end of the year show. These opportunities may include sporting event halftime shows, festivals/fairs, parades, and more. Dancers will be required to purchase a company shirt and jacket for performances. Company dances will open and close the shows each year. So that we can offer this program for free, parents may be asked to volunteer from time to time. Company rehearsals will be scheduled after the session begins and we see where it will best fit into the schedule. A more detailed information packet will be sent home with dancers after the session begins.
