Company Camp is always the first week (Monday - Friday) in August.
What is the cost associated with participating in Company?
Participating in Company, does also come with a financial commitment. After auditions are finalized, dancers will be guaranteed 3 groups (production with the entire Performance Company + 2 other group dances) to participate and compete in. These group dances are created at the choreographer’s discretion and with the dancers' overall ability in mind. All group dances have associated fees: each group dance has an $85 choreography fee plus $80 costume fee (total of $165 in fees per group). Also, if a dancer will miss a competition, there is a $40 per dance re-blocking fee for each affected dance.
What if I want to participate but can't make the audition?
Please call or email the studio if you are unable to make the audition day and we will work on scheduling a makeup audition with you.
My dancer is interested in participating in a solo/duo/trio- is that possible?
Dancers ages 11 and up can participate in duos or trios and dancers ages 13 and up may participate in a solo, duo or trio. Please note that these extras will also come at an additional cost for choreography and costumes.
