Mid American Studio ~ Elite Dance Company

Directed by Miss Abbie & Miss Emma 2019-2020.

The Elite Dance Company is a year-long program (29 weeks, September-May) for students with a strong understanding of basic technique and performance skills, as well as a passion for dance. Elite Dance Company members are required to participate in 2 semesters of Ballet, Company Technique Class, and weekly rehearsals for Competitive Dance routines. Company students will apply their knowledge of basic dance principles to more advanced choreography and technique while exploring dance as an artistic expression through avenues such as regional dance competitions and community performances. The main styles of dance studied include ballet, jazz, lyrical, and contemporary, however students are always encouraged to branch out to other genres to ensure we are training well-rounded dancers. Students should be prepared to learn a greater amount of material at a faster pace. Acceptance is currently by invitation only.
