“Star Company” DANCE COMPANY
These are “the stars” of our studio. Dancers in the 6th grade and above are invited to audition for this elite group. Auditions are held in early September and consist of adjudicated classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, and Acrobatics. The chosen members come for weekly rehearsals, and they perform and compete locally and statewide. Since the group was formed in 1994 they have won Gold and Silver Medals in the Florida Dance Masters Royal Dance Festival, and have won 1st place in Spotlight on Talent group category many times.
In June of 2006, these talented dancers went on a performance tour of Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. In June of 2011 they traveled to France and Germany, performing at Disneyland Paris and throughout Germany. In August of 2016 they traveled back to Germany, performing at several festivals, including a heartfelt performance for our troops overseas. We are very proud to have them represent our studio.

THE LITTLE STARS” PERFORMANCE CLASS
Each member of these performance classes is a “Little Star”. Classes are open to students in 3rd-6th grades who really love to be “on stage”. Included in the curriculum is performance skills, music and singing, and dance choreography. These groups perform, compete and participate in community celebrations. Students in “Little Stars” are required to take at least 2 types of dance techniques, including ballet. Find out more about Little Stars here.
If you are a serious ballet student in the 4th grade or above, Pre-Pointe is for you. Students will not be allowed to go “on Pointe” until they have completed Pre-Pointe. Pointe work is as difficult as it is beautiful - - We want you to be successful on pointe and we have found that Pre-Pointe is the key to success.
We attend 2 Florida Dance Masters Convention each year. The annual Fall Workshop in Orlando is held over Thanksgiving weekend and the Spring Workshop held April. These intense weekends offer excellent technique classes, great entertainment, and for some students the opportunity to compete on the highest level. Specific information will be available prior to each convention.
