A Competitive Company is a program for a dedicated dancer looking for a more serious dance environment interested in expanding their ability. A company is a troupe of auditioned & selected dancers who meet weekly to practice technique, combinations, and a routine they will enter in three to six competitions and exhibitions throughout the year. These companies will travel, competing in dance exhibitions, attending conventions, and participating in community events. An audition is required before admittance.
