Why should you join our preprofessional performance company?
We have a mission to bring positive change to individuals, challenge, and encourage dancers. We aim to share stories and experiences along our dance journey so that we can create authentic connections as well as grow as performers in order to amplify our energies and take on greater opportunities. Furthermore, in our performance team, we carry out rehearsals in a manner similar to professional dance groups in order to introduce the expectations of working professionally. This program is designed for hardworking intermediate to advanced dancers looking for a challenge and eager for growth.
Our owner/director Janelle, has professional experience including The Los Angeles Rams Cheer Team, Laker Girls, Super Bowl LIII, French Montana, YG, Disney Entertainment, Unity Dance Ensemble, Choreographer, and Lead Creative Director of The Revue, and much more. She also has a degree in Dance from one of the top conservatory dance programs in the world and is also a certified group fitness instructor. Be a part of our team so we can learn and grow together.
The 2023 season begins on January 4th. Commitment is only one rehearsal a week to prepare for our Dance showcase, House of
Play and other community performances. Rehearsals are held Wednesdays, Mondays, or Thursdays at 8:30 pm in Pacific Beach. Dancers will be assigned one rehearsal day. Dancers must also take a heels drop-in class weekly. The program is designed to support hardworking individuals, so if you meet the instructor halfway, we will offer you support. Dancers will also have the opportunity to be in other filmed dance projects, performance gigs, professional photoshoots, and preprofessional training outside of rehearsal. The program also supports dancers preparing for professional work by walking through the process of building a dance reel and making a resume. Dancers will also have the optional opportunity to travel to LA for industrial Head Shots.
Tuition is $125 a month. This includes unlimited dance classes, rehearsals, filmed projects and footage, photoshoots, and more.
Scholarships are available for dancers based on financial need and talent. Email email@example.com for more information.
