Competition Teams


Company is a select group of dancers from Academy of Dance who represent the studio to the general public.  The company's main focus is to strengthen dancers who want to take their ability to another level through performing.  Company members spend the year rehearsing, performing, and attending professional dance competitions.  Dancers develop life long

friendships and share lifetime experiences!


We have various dance companies for each level of dancer.  All company dancers are required to audition before each season begins.  Company is by invitation only and dancers are placed based on ability and not by age.  Additionally, the level of commitment for a company dancer is much greater than a non-company dancer.  Being a member of Academy of Dance Company is a wonderful experience and honor.  As such, company dancers are required to sign a

company contract before the season begins.
