Audition for Elevate’s Company!

Company is what we call our Competition Team. Our team competes at regional and national dance competitions and conventions.

Dancing on Company means that you are committed to working hard and giving it your all, in class and on stage. We place work ethic, commitment, and attitude above all else. It’s not about winning. No matter what score the judges give you, if you can walk off stage and say you did your best, you’ve already won.

Company dancers are role models for all other dancers at the studio. They do not give up in class. They do not come to the studio with bad attitudes. They support and encourage all other dancers to do their best. If another Company member is on stage, you are in the audience cheering them on.

We hold our Company dancers to a higher standard. This standard transcends the studio and the stage. It becomes a skill that dancers keep with them throughout life. Elevate is not just our name, it’s our guiding principle.

The Audition

**Make Up Audition**

Saturday, August 3

10:00-11:00am Tap (all ages)

11:00am-2:00pm Jazz Technique, Jazz/Musical Theater Combination, Contemporary Combination (all ages)

2:00-3:00pm Hip Hop (all ages)

We do not have an audition fee; however, there is a Company fee. The Company fee goes towards props, prop transportation, paying instructors and staff to attend competitions, team bonding events, etc. This fee is $300. In order to audition, you must pay a non-refundable deposit of $100 which will go towards the Company fee.

Why do we do this?

In short, we want you to commit to our team before auditioning. Auditions are not a time to try a studio out and “see what you get.” An enormous amount of time is put into creating groups after auditions. If you audition and then decide not to join our team, you have just taken away a spot from another dancer, and it requires our choreographers to recreate their groups. This deposit, due at or anytime before the audition, tells us that you are committed.

*If you do not make the team you will be given a full refund.
