You must speak to our studio directors prior to enrolling a child for troupe/competition classes so that they may be assessed and or placed in the correct class. Dancers must have danced with us for a minimum of two years to be eligible for troupe or have a few years of prior dance experience and will be assessed accordingly. If you are unsure about committing to a troupe please ask what it involves at enrolment. More info on these can be given by staff members. Troupe commitment involves a commitment from parents also for events throughout the year.
Being a part of our company classes involves a very strong commitment level by dancers to be in attendance at all classes and practice at home. Company team classes include lyrical, contemporary, and jazz based routines and the members in our Junior, Teen, and Pre-Professional level must be attending 2 exam ballet classes a week (recommended) or at least one exam ballet and one PBT class a week to ensure technical excellence. Youth & Petite company members must attend at least one ballet class a week and Mini company members are encouraged to do the same. Class attendance will be closely monitored.
All company members Petite level and above must also attend the corresponding conditioning and turns kicks and leaps classes for their age group. Class attendance will be closely monitored The level of talent in this generation is extreme at competition, so in order to remain competitive a high level of technical training is expected and required in 2021.
If you feel that you cannot commit to the level of competition team training required, we suggest that you continue to train in our recreational programme in the classes that you love and enjoy!
