The Company provides dancers, ages 8 and above, performance experience and knowledge from basic through advanced levels. The focus of this class is to educate dancers on the skills of performing, choreography and theatrical production. These elements are touched upon but not fully developed in the technique classes. To meet the technical demands of choreography in this class, dancers must also participate in a technique class of ballet or jazz. Classical ballet training and dance conditioning are required in the more advanced groups. Each year the Company presents its own unique Winter Concert with choreography selections by students as well as instructors. Dancers perform in other various venues as well as the Annual Spring Performance. Auditions for the Company are held in May.
