About Performing Company
Rhythm Dance Center Performing Company requires talent, commitment, dedication, passion, hard work, an eagerness to learn, and a desire to perform and grow as a dancer. And what your child will gain from the experience in Company is priceless—as both a dancer and an individual.
For over two decades, our Company has competed among some of the nation’s best dance studios, worked with some of the top choreographers, and learned from acclaimed dance instructors. There is virtually no limit to what our members can experience, accomplish and learn as a part of Company if they set their mind to it. The Rhythm Dance Center Performing Company is recognized and well respected throughout the nation and it is an honor to be a part of this prestigious group.
Auditions will be held April 17th - May 1, 2017 for the 2017-2018 Performing Company. Specifics and details are on our Performing Company Auditions page. If you are moving in to the area from out of town, please contact us with any questions.
Our competition mentality is a very positive one. We believe a positive approach will help produce a positive outcome, and there is always something higher to achieve. It is not about winning a trophy or the highest score. Of course, we love when we are awarded top scores, who doesn’t?! However, we are not going to measure our success by a trophy. We consistently set goals for our dancers and try to compete in a high caliber environment where we can always be motivated and inspired by like-minded studios and dancers. For us, competition will always be about motivating, inspiring, and educating kids in a positive environment.
We want our dancers to focus on doing their personal BEST, not winning. If they have done their best, we are happy and so proud! Sometimes, even when they perform their very best, they still may not place high in the competition. That’s OK! We will receive constructive criticism from experienced, knowledgeable judges with di erent backgrounds, and we will use this feedback as a basis for improvement and growth. We want to help young dancers understand that disappointments are part of life, and these setbacks help them grow both as a dancer and a person!
While competing, they are also learning to respect other dancers, studios and teachers for their talents! The dance world is very small, and building positive relationships with our peers is very important to us. The connections and opportunities that come from the competitive and convention dance world are unmatched for those dancers wishing to seek a professional career.
Competition gives our dancers multiple opportunities to be on stage in a professional environment. This training is priceless! Dancers learn how to prepare and rehearse as a team, work through nerves, focus amidst adrenaline and thrive under bright stage lights in a competitive environment. All of this can translate into higher self esteem, radiating self confidence, improved public speaking and so much more.
Our dancers are learning, thinking, and being creative as well as training their bodies. They are learning important time management skills. They are realizing the importance of teamwork and good sportsmanship. All these lessons easily adapt into other areas of their lives and will serve them well through adulthood.
We are beyond proud of the successful competitive program at Rhythm Dance Center, and we are excited to continue to inspire and grow as dancers and people!
