Tahoe Dance Competition Company
Tahoe Dance Competition Company members travel around Northern Nevada and California competing in jazz, hip hop, tap, lyrical jazz, contemporary and modern dance. The members consider dance to be their most important extracurricular activity. The number of members each year varies between ten and twenty five participants whose ages range from nine to eighteen years of age.
Company dancers and parents must be dedicated, as competing with the company is a large commitment. In addition to company classes, regular classes through Tahoe Dance School are a requirement. Dancers perform at three competitions; typically, one in March, April and May, as well as being featured in Tahoe Dance School’s spring performance in June.
All Company dancers perform with the Production Company. The Production routine is a large number that encompasses different dance genres and a wide range of ages. Team spirit is a must! There is also the opportunity to perform solos, duos and trios, all of which is decided at auditions.
Auditions are held in late September and rehearsals begin early October. With the extra dedication these dancers give, they receive extra performance opportunities, their confidence and skill level improves, and they develop great friendships with their fellow teammates. Although Competition Company is a serious dedication, dancers and the director focus on having fun and expressing their love of dance.
