Worried You Don’t Have Enough Dance Experience?
We are a very welcoming group of dancers, all of whom at one point or another had to start with the basics. Dancers with very little experience are welcome to join us in our Studio Company, which can be very useful in accelerating your improvement in dance both technically and from a performance quality standpoint. If you have never danced before, but want to start, we encourage you to audition our Studio company. Danced in the past and are just feeling a little rusty? Come and try out. You might be surprised by how much your mind and body remembers.
We promise performance opportunities for dancers no matter how close to the beginning of their dance journey. Beginners should be aware, however, that they will be placed in either the main company or studio company based on their ability to meet the criteria that has been laid out.
We promise performance opportunities for dancers no matter how close to the beginning of their dance journey, whether it is with The Dance Eclectic or The Dance Eclectic Studio.
