NEW Mandatory Classes: Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop, J & Ts, Stretch & Strength (when applicable, or Core class for Debut Co) and Co (Nut) Rehearsals. Hip Hop is now a mandatory class going forward for all company dancers. The only exception is this year’s 2019 graduating seniors, who will be grandfathered into last years requirements, however we strongly advise them to take HH also especially if they are planning on auditioning for a college team! Hip Hop has become mainstream and a very important style that is seen everywhere from high school, college & professional dance teams, videos, commercials, broadway, movies, etc… It is our professional opinion that any dance that does not study Hip Hop will be at a great disadvantage in both the recreational and professional dance world. Since our goal has always bee to provide the best training possible we have adjusted our required company classes to keep up with the times and do our best by our students.
Available optional classes are: Tap, Hip Hop, Pointe, Contemporary, Musical Theater, and Acro.
Dancers should make us aware if they do not plan on taking the optional classes in the fall that they take in the summer. NEW Choreography may begin in the summer. Communication will help us to use our time more efficiently and not have to make changes and redo choreography that is already set.
In addition to this class schedule we will be starting on 2 production numbers this summer. The first will be on Friday August 24th and the second on Sunday September 9th. Please keep 9:00am to 5:00pm available on these days. Attendance is mandatory for entire rehearsal on these days for participation. SORRY, NO EXCEPTIONS.
As always 100% Attendance in all company classes and at all rehearsals is expected. However we should be made aware of only unavoidable conflicts as soon as possible because they will affect the lesson or choreography planned. Please understand that clubs, teams, jobs, vacations, etc. will eventually be a conflict with your classes and we expect your dance classes to be your first priority. You should not schedule another activity on a day you already committed to a company class.
Summer Dance Classes begin July 9th and continue for 6 weeks. The studio will be closed the week of Aug 6th -10th.
