What is The Company?
Our Mini and Junior Pre-Professional Companies are designed for dancers who are passionate and committed to their training. Our Company performers represent the studio. We have high expectations for our company dancers. They must be fully committed to their dance schedule, be punctual, and attend class regularly.
These dancers will receive performance opportunities outside of the recital, training that will prepare them for a professional career, and will be assisted by The Diaz Sisters with their development as a performer. The Diaz Sisters have worked and performed for companies such as ABC, NBC, MTV, Apple, Radio Disney, Walt Disney World, Apple Music, Grammy Awards Chicago Chapter, Nickelodeon, and the Chicago Jr. Luvabulls. They are also the on-set choreographers for the Emmy Award winning "Carpool Karaoke" and "Post Malone's Celebrity World Pong League".
