Competitive Company Auditions 2018-2019

Our new season of Competitive Company is just around the corner!

It all begins with auditions on MONDAY, June 11th (details below)!


We are continuing our "Dew Drops" level... this will be for dancers between the ages of 4-6 and the average age between them needs to fall below 6.  The main objective of this group is to introduce them at a young age to 1-2 additional performance ("competition") opportunities in the local area in the Spring, in addition to the annual recital in May. We will set the stage for a fun-filled year of technique building while learning Ballet, Jazz and Tap. "Dew Drops" will be taught by me (Kelly Skaggs) on Monday Evenings from 5:00-6:30pm, ideally I would like no more than 15 dancers.  There will be a class audition format on Monday, June 11th from 3:45-4:30pm, but if you are unable to attend PLEASE EMAIL ME. I would like to host an informal meeting in my office regarding this on Tuesday, June 5th from 5:30-6:30pm.

Many have asked about our "Calm Program," at this time it has not been decided how many levels there will be because we haven't had auditions yet.  This group of dancers will typically be ages 9-18. All "Calm" dancers will take 2 ballet and 2 jazz tech classes and compete 2 routines, each having their own dedicated class time for choreography.  Based on last year, this group attended 4 competitions and did is attending nationals in July. 

Here are the other levels creating our Competitive Company Program:

Sprinkles, ages 6-9 will meet 2 times per week and attend 3 competitions throughout the season

Raindrops, ages 8-11 will meet 2 times per week and attend 4-5 competitions throughout the season, participates at Nationals

Junior, Tween & Teen Thunder, ages 10-15 will meet 2 times per week and attend 4-5 competitions throughout the season, participates at Nationals

Lightning, ages 13-18 will meet 2 times per week and attend 4-5 competitions throughout the season, participates at Nationals

Pre-Pro, ages 10-14 & ages 11-18.  Pre-Pro ages 10-14 will meet 3 times per week and attend 5-8 competitions/conventions throughtout the season, participates at Nationals.  Pre-Pro ages 12-18 will meet 4 times per week and attend 5-8 competitions/conventions throughtout the season, participates at Nationals.


I'm sure you have a ton of questions and I'm happy to help!  If you are considering allowing your dancer (ideally dancers higher than the Dew Drops listed above) to audition, please join me for an informal meeting in my office at SODC on Tuesday, June 5th from 6:45-7:45pm.
