Be in Good Company
At Dance Dynamics, many of our dancers are not members of other teams or organizations. We’ve found that many of the dancers who come through our studio are looking for their place and a sense of belonging. Dance Dynamics Dance Company provides this opportunity. Your kids will have the chance to connect with other kids who share their passion for dance. They will be a part of a true team where they will feel a true sense of belonging.

To become a member of the dance company, dancers are required to receive three summer dance credits, one ballet credit, and will need to audition for the fall before the start of the dance year. During the audition, dancers will learn a small choreographed piece, which will be performed the following day in front of four instructors. Additionally, a dancer may be asked to learn and perform an across the floor combination, as well as specific moves.
Once a dancer is a dance company member, they are allowed to miss four total classes per dance subject. After the fourth absence, the dancer will be removed from one dance. Only two make-up classes per day the dancer dances and two sit-out classes will be allowed.
Our Apprentice Program allows dancers to attend class within a competition class as an understudy. Understudies must be at all August choreography classes and all following classes. They are not responsible for any choreography fees or monthly tuition for the class. In the event a team member cannot perform, the understudy is asked to step in as the alternate dancer.
The original team member is required to pay any fees for the understudy and allow the use of their costume for the event. The apprentice program does not guarantee future placement in any competition teams, and apprentices are expected to meet the attendance requirements in order to be an eligible understudy and team member.
