Dance Company


About the Dance Company at Great Lakes Dance Academy

Our dance company auditions in the spring each year. The company rehearses every Saturday afternoon from September until mid-April. The company attends 3 competitions. We have dancers from 8 -18 years of age and present approximately 30 routines of various styles and sizes. We also offer a part-time dance company opportunity. These dancers learn 1-2 routines and attend 1 competition. They rehearse from January to April. Part-time and Full-time company dancers participate in the Company Showcase, which is held annually in April.

Dance Company Mission Statement

The purpose of this company is to develop dance artists through learning, perfecting and performing a variety of dance pieces. The goal is not to win competitions but to gain experience as a performer and dance artist. Competitions are a great way to validate our hard work and get a chance to perform for dance industry professionals, but the goal each season is to improve our skills and build confidence as dancers.
