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 email@example.com 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.
How do I join Pre-Company?
