Attend Summer Company Audition Workshop: This workshop is designed to help dancers prepare and audition for the CDDS Company for the 2023-2024 Season.  It will refine technique, hone skills and improve presentation.

Being a Company dancer:

  • Company dancers prioritize dance as their main activity. While well rounded, the expectation is that dance comes first and is not missed for anything else (other than an educational or religious requirement).

  • Company classes include Ballet, Tap, Jazz & Contemporary
  • Additional recreational classes can be taken for additional tuition 
  • Company tuition includes all Company classes and rehearsals.
  • Company dancers must attend our Summer Intensive (4th full week of July) and 5 weeks of Company Monday classes.
  • Extra choreography and rehearsal hours are announced as scheduled and often held on weekends
  • Additional performances throughout the year (often on weekends) in addition to December Holiday performance and June Recital.
  • Good attendance to class is imperative.
