CDA Company Auditions on Sept. 24
CALLING DANCERS AGES 8+! Does your dancer want more performance opportunities throughout the year outside of Nutcracker and our Spring Production? Our CDA Company is just the thing for them! With 2 competitions, one optional competition/convention, an end of year performance, and community outreach events, this is the perfect way for your dancer to get some more “shine time”.
Purpose of the Company
The main objective of the CDA Company is to give dancers who love being on stage a chance to perform multiple times during the year. Dancers will have the opportunity to compete in competitions, participate in an optional convention and learn from world renowned choreographers, perform at multiple community outreach events, and perform in an additional showcase at the end of the season. The Company is a great way to gain experience in the dance world, improve dance skills, be a part of a close-knit team, and to give back to the community.
