This troupe will focus on a short warm-up time with the majority of the hour devoted to working on dance pieces that will be used for recitals and other performances throughout the year. Admittance into the Dance Performing Troupe will be by audition only. We will be traveling to scheduled places to perform our dance pieces. Commitment is a requirement and key to this group since we will depend on every body to be present in order to be able to put together choreographic pieces in a professional manner. As well, it is paramount that your dancer be able to travel or find travel arrangements to the different venues where we will perform as one person missing will have an effect on the overall performances we do. If your dancer cannot commit to practice times, be able to travel to performance venues, or if they miss several performances, they may be dismissed from the troupe.
