The Performance Team is a great choice for dancers who want more performance opportunities, want the awesome experience of being part of a close-knit Team, or simply love to dance. Performance Team dancers get to focus on growing their Jazz and Hip Hop technique, and it is an excellent stepping stone for young dancers who aspire to join the competitive JDC Company Team. It is also an important part of our community outreach as a studio, allowing the studio to share the art of dance with the Baton Rouge and Ascension communities. The Performance Team will participate in two regional dance competitions, the annual JDC Recital, and a few community outreach performances each season.
Joining the team is open to all interested dancers ages five to twelve years old. At the beginning of each season, the studio hosts a weekly summer technique class for dancers interested in joining the Performance Team. This is where the instructors review dance technique and divide the dancers into groups based on age and/or level. There are no required auditions associated with this team – only the technique class to ensure appropriate placement. All interested dancers will be welcomed and placed on the team.
After completing the summer technique classes, a Choreography Camp will be held. This is where all choreography for the season will be taught, including competition routines and parade marches. There will not be a second in-class opportunity for dancers to learn their dances, therefore, attendance to the Camp is mandatory for joining the Performance Team. The Performance Team will also meet weekly for technique during the season These hour-long weekly practices will be held Prairieville studio. These classes are designated as Performance Team specific technique; there will be no recital dances associated with these classes. Dancers interested in joining the Team should register for regular recital classes as well. To prepare for performances, the Performance Team will meet a couple times each month for weekend practice.
