Performing Group is for dancers who want to take their dancing to the next level...beyond the recreational commitment. The Dance Project believes that its performing group dancers deserve the best possible training in a loving and professional environment. We believe that building a great group of dancers is rooted in beautiful technique, diverse dance styles, and an atmosphere that is passionate for performing. Performing Group is a yearlong commitment of investing into your dance training as well as a yearlong commitment to your team. The year will be full of classes, choreography, costumes, performances, competitions, challenges, and achievements. Our PG dancers grow on and off the dance floor by not only working on technique and dance steps but by practicing life skills. Commitment, dedication, respect, confidence, pride, and friendship are just a few of the qualities a PG dancer experiences.
Each level of commitment is held to a high standard of excellence. Each group is a privilege to be and represents The Dance Project equally. We expect outstanding character, passion for dance, and a hunger to grow from each team member. For details on the different requirements and expectations of each branch please view the full performing group audition packet.
Auditions are open to all however we do not accept all that audition. We highly recommend that dancers have at least 2-3 years of experience in ballet, jazz and tap before auditioning for minis/ensemble and 2-3 years of hip hop experience for crew. If you want to know if your child is technically prepared to audition please speak with the front desk and ask for director/teacher feedback on your dancers readiness. Because our youngest PG dancers take 5 classes a week we also highly recommend that dancers take 4 classes a week for an entire year before auditioning and committing to the team. This will ensure that Performing group is the right fit for your dancer and your family.
