Stages Dance Company

Students are auditioned for placement each year in Stages Dance Company (typically ages 9 & up). Company members must be taking all of their dance classes at STAGES, have a strong ballet and jazz background and be able to commit themselves to weekly rehearsals, as well as numerous performances.

We have incorporated a class program in order to standardize fees for Company Members and in hopes of ensuring that the Members are taking those classes which will allow them to develop better technique and thereby improve their performance skills. Additional classes to those included in the Company Packages may be taken, but will be charged out at the regular class fee rates. Company fees are $320/mo. which includes rehearsals and up to 7.5 hrs of classes.
