In 2015, Rock City Dance Center expanded the Apprentice Company Program and hired Sydney Smith as the Director. This program is specifically designed for dancers who desire an stronger commitment to dance outside of our Recreational Program. This is a competition dance program for dancers at the beginning and intermediate level and only competes regionally.

Apprentice Company dancers will be placed in two group dances and perform at two local competitions. Mini Company does not particiapte in Nationals in the summer and will not travel.  Dancers will take 1-1.5 hours of fundamental training classes weekly and also are required to participate in Mini Company Rehearsals for 1 hour on Wednesday nights.

Apprentice Company will follow the RCDC Company Programs Tuition Schedule. Apprentice Company members will have an average monthly fee of $100-$200 per member. Costume and entry fees are an additional expense and are due according to the RCDC Company Programs Fee Schedule.

The Apprentice Company will be divided into divisions. The Directors will place dancers in groups by age, ability, experience, and potential.

Dancers interested in becoming a part of the RCDC Apprentice Company are required to participate in auditions. Each dancer will participate in summer intensive classes of Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop and Tap. Judges will observe dancers during these classes. To prepare for audtions, we suggest dancers take the Summer Fundamental Session from  June 5-30, 2017 and also the Company Prep Camp July 24 - 27, 2017. All dancers must have a parent attend a required meeting during the audition. Auditions are FREE for dancers who participate in Summer Intensive. Summer Intensive is August 1-2, 2017 and is required for auditions. DOWNLOAD INFO
