Here at RBDA we audition students to be part of our competition team and those students will perform in at least 2 to 3 major competitions each year along with Nutcracker and the Spring show. To be eligible to audition, students must be enrolled in at least 4 ballet classes a week and take lyrical/jazz or both.
Being part of the competition team is for the more serious and disciplined student who is thinking about pursuing a career in dance and is prepared to dedicate extra time at the studio. Our goal with this team is to give students as much performance opportunity to develop artistry and performance experience in order to facilitate a professional career.
Students who are company members have the opportunity of participating in workshops with well known choreographers, and get to partner with professional guest artists that we bring in.
