DAA Performance Company
What IS the Dance Arts Academy Performance Company?
Some students will choose to take their dance training to the next level. Our Performance Company is for those students looking to take more weekly classes, learn routines to perform at community events and take to three regional competitions each year and participate in regional master classes, workshops and conventions.
Being accepted into the Performance Company program requires an audition and placement on specific companies that the instructors believe your dancer will succeed in for the year. At auditions you can let the instructors know what genres of dance you are most interested in competing in. We will then take into consideration your level of training when placing you.
We do have an end of Summer Company Pre-Season week where the dancers will begin to learn their routines for our community performances and their competitive pieces for the year. We will continue training over the course of the year for these dancers not only with our DAA faculty but also with master teachers & choreographers to broaden the dancer's scope of training.
So...you received and invitation to audition for the DAA Performance Company ~ what does it mean?
The staff at DAA pay attention to all our students very closely - some dancers really seem to shine in the classroom. We want to be sure these students have the opportunity to pursue dance as a sport more in depth then just a once a week recreational class. We strive on providing diverse and educational opportunities to performers of all ages - and if you received and invitation it means we think your dancer is up for the challenge! The three different levels are laid out below and as the age and experience increase so will the time commitment and responsibility of the dancers. *You do not need to receive an invitation to audition for DAAPC*
There are three levels to this program:
Mini Company – Ages 5 to 8 and new to competitive dance
Pre-Company – Ages 8 and up with minimal competitive experience
Company – Ages 8 and up with more competitive experience
*All levels are determined by DAA staff at auditions*
Whether or not you decide to join us at auditions; the invitation to audition also qualifies you to join DAAPC in learning the opening number for our annual June recital – “Take Two”! The rehearsal schedule will be posted after February vacation week if you wish to take part. This is at no additional cost to you! Please let us know if you would like to participate in the opening number NO LATER than February 23rd! Thank you!
