Are you considering competitive dance for your dancer? At Center Stage in Leander, we have Jazz/Lyrical Companies and Hip-Hop Crews. This past year we performed in local community events, Old Town Christmas Spectacular and Living Leander Business Expo. We also attended three competitions this past spring. Read below for more information about our company teams. Teams have been formed for the 2021-2022 season, but it’s not too late to audition for a spot. We offer a summer audition for those who may have missed our spring audition.
Our Jazz/Lyrical Companies are for ages 4-18 years, and our Hip-Hop Companies are for ages 6-18 years. During the audition, students will learn a short dance combination as well as perform some across-the-floor progressions and center skills. We will be looking at their ability to pick up choreography, their technical skill, and their showmanship. Students who are ready for company will receive an e-mail stating which company team they have been placed on. Students who are not quite ready for company will receive an e-mail with class recommendations best suited for their level.
At Center Stage in Leander, our dance company members are only required to take 2-3 hours of dance per week. Our youngest Jazz/Lyrical dance company members and all of our hip-hop company members are required to take two classes per week. For Jazz/Lyrical Company, dancers take their company class as well as a ballet class. For Hip-Hop Company, dancers take their company class and a class of their choice. All of our other Jazz/Lyrical Company members are required to take three classes per week including their company class, company ballet technique, and a class of their choice. Several of our dancers choose to take more than the required amount of hours.
Our lower required hours allows our dancers to participate in other activities such as sports or school dance teams. Our dancers perform very well at competition, and our hope is that the dancers can find balance between competitive dance, sports, other activities, school, and family time.
Company is for the serious dance student who wishes to grow as a dancer. Dancers are expected to attend all classes and put forth their best effort in every class. As a Center Stage Company member, you will be part of a team; you will build beautiful friendships, and you will be guided to reach your potential as a dancer and performer.
