Here at JHDCo. we are incredibly passionate about dance that is why we offer more opportunities for those students who just can't get enough! Our competitive dance companies participate in a number of opportunities throughout the year all while establishing a strong foundation of precise technicality!
Dancers have the opportunity to join one or more the following companies.
After placement, competitive students receive a company shirt as a welcome gift! Dancers will take classes with their company during the competitive season taking place from August-June. During this time dancers rehearse choreography while receiving pre-professional training specific to each dance style. All competition dancers take classes on two days during the school/work week. Dancers in multiple companies may dance anywhere from two to five days a week. Each company competes at a total of five competitions during the spring including Nationals in the summer! (Vision Company competes at a total of 3 regional competitions).
If you are interested in our competitive companies please contact us at email@example.com or call us at 763.413.0647 for more information.
Summer Specialty Classes: These classes are designed for current competitive students or students interested in our competitive program. Each class will help dancers maintain and refine skills to prepare students for Class Placement Weeks!
Dance Intensive Week 1 - Ballet Intensive: Ballet intensive is open to all dancers who are interested in auditioning for a competitive dance company, current company members or for dancers who simply love ballet!
Dance Intensive Week 2- Guest Instructor: During this week dancers will learn skills and choreography with guest instructors and will be evaluated for placement in one or more of our competitive lines. Dancers interested in any additional opportunities including solos, duets, trios, and small groups will have the opportunity to state their interest in the official intent forms which each dancer fills out to indicate the intended opportunities they wish to be evaluated for.
Choreography Camp: Dancers will meet their company and learn choreography for all of their group dances for the competitive year.
Dancers perform at 4 local competitions in the spring and attend one national competition in June. They also perform in our annual recital.
Dancers "Revive" their inspiration and get energized for competition season after a long winter break! Dancers will enjoy master classes from dance professionals, team building activities games and lots and lots of FUN!
