PDA COmpetitive Company

The Company

Our Competitive Company is a collection of extremely talented, dedicated, and hard working young dancers. We offer a variety of programs that vary in time commitment, while all being held to the same level of expectations and training. Dancers train in many different styles and compete in 4-5 competitions throughout the GTA and Guelph area. PDA Competitive Company is a team through and through, making goal setting, team building, competition mental prep, and mindset training an important part of our program. We partner with 100% You Athletics to bring this unique part of our training to life. Our program is based on building confidence and strength while instilling the traits such as work ethic, energy, focus, a positive attitude, and camaraderie.

 

All programs are by audition or teacher recommendation only. Auditions are held in the early Summer with all dancer registration required by August 1st. A mandatory choreography week for all company dancers is held the last week of August every season .

Dancers auditioning MUST fill out the Audition Registration Form above to attend the audition. 

 

Dancers should be dressed in proper dance wear: Sports Bra or Bodysuit and Shorts preferred, no tights. They should also bring dance shoes for ballet and jazz as well as have access to bare feet.  Hair should be in a bun. 

 

Dancers do not have to prepare anything for the audition. We run the audition as a class, learning a combination and also assessing technique, flexibility, strength, and facility.  We try to make the process as stress free as possible for the dancers. 

 

In mid-May, dancers registered for the audition will be emailed a Company Package which will give more information about the program you indicate on your registration form. 

 

If you have any additional questions please contact Company Directors Kim Horseman & Kim Cox at pdacompetitivecompany@gmail.com for more information for our 2018-2019 season.

 

We look forward to meeting you and your dancer on May 29th!
