What is Company & Competition?
THE DANCE STUDIO CNY IS NOW ACCEPTING NEW DANCERS AGES 5 - 8 for our New Mini-Competition/Company Group! Dancers needed for both Camillus and Manlius Studios!
Also accepting older students for various company levels!
Then Company and/or Competition at TDS might be for them!
Company Dancers: The TDS CNY Company program is for dancers who want more intensive training and have a stronger desire, interest & ability in dance +/or theater performance. Ballet, Jazz &Tap technique will be taught and emphasis will be on correct placement, posture and more advanced movement; routines learned for mandatory local performances. Train more extensively in Ballet, Jazz + Tap!Be prepared for school auditions and train for future dancing in college, musical theater and other performance opportunities. Dancers take a Placement Class to determine the best level based on their age and current skills. Company Dancers do not need to be on Competition Team.
Dancers in this level are required to take Company Ballet, Tap &Jazz . Additional recommended classes Modern & Acro/Tumbling.
Competition Team: In addition to Company dance, be part of the fun and excitement of competition dance! The Dance Studio CNY has won countless high score over all awards, choreography awards, performance awards, costume awards, entertainment awards, judges’ awards, student choreography awards, national awards & cash awards.
Competition Dancers DO need to be part of Company Dancers. In addition to Company Classes competition dancers must also take Technique Class and seniors must take Company Contemporary.
Company and Competition are run in the same positive atmosphere as all of our group and recreation classes! Dancers work harder and advance quicker with more class hours per week.
Because of the more intense and more advanced format of the Company and Competition groups, dedication and commitment are extremely important! There is a maximum number of absences allowed so that everyone is progressing and focused on learning and creating.
The requirements and obligations for our "Petite Mini Group" are minimal and a great way to start out for young dancers.
If interested in joining the TDS competition team 2 Summer Dance Intensives are required for new and returning students. Please contact us for more details.
Strong desire, dedication and time commitment necessary with attendance requirements
