This company is designed to offer students the chance to work with more technical choreography in various different genres, expand their knowledge of dance, perform more often, and become acquainted with the life of a professional dancer!

The company will be involved with 3 shows during the year. In addition to the winter and summer show, the company will also be performing in a spring which will include instructor and student choreographies. This spring show will be for company members only.

Company class and rehearsals will take place on Saturdays with time allotted from 10-3. Depending on the objective on a given Saturday, we may not need the entire company to attend so the schedule will vary from week to week.
