Connectivity Dance Company – CDLC

Competitive Dancers who wish to increase their performance experience may audition for THE COMPANY.  Dancers who display strong technique, self-motivation and dedication are welcomed to try out for this accelerated performance program.  Dancers must meet the Competitive Cube requirements to be eligible to audition.

Company Members will learn choreography for up to 4 additional large group dances in Ballet, Jazz, Variety and Modern.  3 hours of choreography each week from September to December.

DANCERS CONSIDERING AUDITIONING FOR THE COMPANY ARE RECOMMENDED TO ATTEND A MINIMUM OF 1 WEEK OF INTENSIVE TRAINING ~ Summer of Dance OR Back to Dance, TO HELP MAINTAIN TECHNIQUE OVER THE SUMMER MONTHS.

Pricing for the Company for the 2017/18 season has been set at $100 per dancer plus an additional $100 per dance and will require fund-raising to help cover additional costs of extended training, costumes and competition fees.

Membership and Choreography fees assist in covering the expenses for choreography/studio time and instructors attending and organizing events.

All money raised from the CDL Gala Auction help to offset expenses for the In-Studio competition “ConfiDance” to allow this to be a free public event for families to come and watch.

On February 25th we will be participating in our Annual Chuck-aPuck Fundraiser to assist with costuming expenses.  As part of our CAP commitment, 250 game tickets and vouchers are also available through the studio.

Additional costs of being a Company Member are the Entry fees for Competitions.  Overages in studio planned fundraisers will be posted to competition fees when possible.  Parent members are welcomed to organize a group fundraiser within the Gala Event or organize a stand alone fundraiser to help reduce competitive expenses.
