Company Too! Juniors and Teens is for dancers 9-18 years of age (4th grade and up) who wish to dance more seriously than at a recreational level but train and compete less than Company Elite. Company Too bridges the gap between dancing for recreation and being a member of Company Elite.
Dancers in this program will be placed on a specific team based on age and level and and train 3-4 days per week in Ballet, Hip Hop and Jazz for a total of 5.5 hours per week at the Buffalo Grove or Highland Park studio (depending on where you are placed). These dancers will compete with their set team in 1 group Jazz dance and 1 group Hip Hop dance. Company Too members will attend dance conventions and compete and perform at competitions, conventions, and recitals. They will have a set schedule of classes that they must attend on a weekly basis. Company Too members are not eligible to participate in dance electives. (solos/duos/trios/extra groups)
Ballet Technique-1 90 min. class/week
Jazz Turns and Progressions-1 60 min. class/week
Hip Hop Progressions- 1 60 min. class/week
Company Too members will also have 2 rehearsal hours per week. Jazz (60 min.) and Hip Hop (60 min.).
These rehearsal hours are where choreography will be learned for competition. All of these class/rehearsal hours will be assigned to you and must be taken at the Buffalo Grove or Highland Park location (depending on where you are placed).
**It is recommended that any Company Too dancers that wish to become part of Company Elite in the future should also participate in all dance conventions and train additional hours during the week.**
