Elite Company 2021-2022

Congratulations to our Elite Dance Company for 2021-2022. We are so excited for the year ahead!

If you have any questions or cannot make the commitment to one of the teams or to Company, please let Miss Kristen know as soon as possible. We set choreography dates based on choreographer availability. We look forward to a great competition season and getting an early start!

Each routine is $40/dancer and due by July 1st. Any fees not paid by July 1st will be automatically charged. For Pierce's contemporary large group, the cost will be $50/dancer.

Extra routines

Again this year, all company members are invited to participate in extra routines. Dancers can select their partners, music, and choreographer. Solo participation is also open to all Elite Dancers.

Only Seniors will perform solos at recital. The cost for a solo is $250. This includes a maximum of 6 hours of instruction. For Pierce, the cost is $300.

For duets/trios, we will average scores from each competition and the top 3-5 will perform at recital. (The total of extra routines selected will depend on total number of duets performed this year and total number of recital dances.) For a duet/trio, the cost is $120 per dancer. For Pierce, the cost is $150 per dancer. This includes a maximum of 6 hours of instruction. Additional time is $30/half hour.

All those interested in an extra routine should see Miss Kristen about scheduling summer practice time. Dancers participating in an extra routine are highly encouraged to attend the optional competition/ convention(s).
