Pre-Company Classes

For those preparing to join the company or to see if it’s a good fit.

Are You Considering Joining Company in the Future?

We started Pre-company because we had so many dancers interested in Company but they weren’t taking the needed classes to help them succeed in Company. 

If you’re a Junior Star, you’re eligible for Pre-Company. Pre-Company is a great way to ease your dancer into Company or try it out to see if it’s a good fit for them. And perfect for dancers interested in testing the water of Company before fully committing to the Live Love Dance Performing company.

Dancers will experience higher intensity classes in more varied dance styles, they will also attend a convention with the LLD Company Dancers.  Usually, after the convention, most dancers know if they want to do Company or not.

    Pre-Company FAQs


    Why did you start Pre-Company?

    We started pre-company because we have so many dancers interested in Company but they are not taking the appropriate classes to help them reach their goal, or they are not meeting the standards or work level of a Company dancer.


    What benefits are there of being Pre-Company?

    All teachers will be made aware of your goals to join the Performing Company and you will be challenged at the level the Company Dancers are within your own classes but in a way that is still appropriate for your age and ability level.


    Does being in Pre-Company guarantee I will be in Company next year?

    Not necessarily —many factors that go into determining Company placement. There may not be a group at your age or ability level next year or it may take several years of being in “Pre-Company” to meet your goal.


    What’s the difference between Pre-Company and Mini and Junior Stars?

    As a dancer, each December and June you will receive a detailed report of how you are doing in your classes as well as what you need to work on to meet your goal of becoming a Company dancer.  


    What if I am not recommended to take the required classes yet?

    Please email missvalerie@livelovedance.net for recommendations.


    What if I fail to meet one of the above requirements for Junior Stars or Pre-Company during the year?

    Unless you have an emergency situation you will be removed from “Pre-Company” status and will not receive the benefits listed above.
