These classes meet once each week, in addition to their technique classes, for 60-90 minutes. Age levels of each competition group varies, depending on the skill level of the student. These classes attend several competitions, perform extra dances in the recital, and attend selected seminars. Genres of dance include Lyrical, Modern, Jazz, and Tap. Company classes are for those dancers who want to go the "extra mile" and participate in more educational and performance opportunities. Students who participate in the competition companies are required to participate in summer dance classes.
