Performing Arts Company

N-Step Dance Academy’s Performing Arts Company is a program that is geared towards students that have a more serious outlook on dancing. The Performing Arts Company will be offered to children ranging from 5-18. The Company is based upon skill, age, and dedication. This team consists of Mini, Petite, Junior, Teen, and Senior Company dancers.

This program has the student’s best interest at heart! It will teach them how to work as a team, sportsmanship, responsibility, and discipline, all while being in a positive learning environment, having fun, and doing something they love!

NSDA’s Performing Arts Company attends convention workshops, master classes,  and 4 regional competitions during the dance season, 1 national competition; as well as, performing in our end of the year recital.

Audition fee: There is a $20.00 audition fee per student. The fee is due at sign in and can be paid in cash or credit card.

Arrival Time: Each age group will be able to sign in, receive their audition number, and warm up 45 minutes prior to their scheduled time. Please do not arrive any earlier than 45 minutes prior to your dancer’s scheduled time. No dancer will be allowed into auditions after they start.

Auditioning Up: Every student must audition for their specific age group. This means they must audition in the age group that they are on the day of auditions.However, if your dancer is 12 yrs old and would like to audition for the age group above they are more than welcome to for no additional fee. This means the dancer will audition for their age group AND the age group above. Any dancer who auditions for the age group above will need to keep their same audition number for each audition.

Audition Attire: Auditioning dancers should be dressed in proper dance attire, hair should be securely up, and have proper dance shoes (ballet & jazz shoes).

Two pieces are allowed.

*For the 5-8 yrs. old age group, it is OK if they have not taken jazz before. If you do not have jazz shoes, they may wear their ballet shoes.

Parent/Student Company Meeting: If your dancer is asked to be a part of our 2017-2018 Performing Arts Company, we will be holding a mandatory meeting with all semi-competitive and competitive company dancers and parents on Friday, August 18, 2017 from 6pm-9:15pm, as well as, a meeting for the elite company dancers and parents on Sunday, August 20, 2017 from 1pm-5:30pm.

The company meeting will consist of reviewing and signing your dancer’s contract, the parent’s contract, competitions for the season, nationals, warm ups sizing, parent’s shirts, booster club, and much more.
