Aurora Dance Ensemble

Level 1 and Up: Junior Company
Level 2 and Up: Senior Company

Ensemble members must present a mature approach to classes, performances and rehearsals as well as a dedication to dance. This includes appropriately managing their time to ensure that all family, school, and company commitments are met. Dancers will be expected to arrive on time and be prepared for all classes, rehearsals, and performances, and are expected to follow all studio rules, including dress codes. They must demonstrate a clear understanding of dance vocabulary, theatre etiquette, and skill in teaching and fostering younger and/or less experienced dancers. Language, behavior, and overall personal appearance should, and will be of the highest quality both in the studio and at any studio related function.
