Elite Company is for dancers who want to train more heavily in dance, expand there knoledge through additional classes, conventions, & compete on a regional/national level. It is divided into 3 age divisions:
Mini, Junior, & Teen/Senior. Our Company dancers range in age 5-18. During the dance season, they attend conventions where
they will learn from some of the biggest choreographers
in the industry, & also compete with dancers from all over the country.
How do I become an Elite Company Dancer?
BDC holds a OPEN AUDITION every June to choose dancers for our upcoming competition season! This Audition is open to all dancers in the area, as well as last years Company dancers. Please keep a lookout for our audition date (we will post it on Facebook, website, slide show at BDC Live! (recital), mass email to all on file, etc). If you are a transfer student, have previous competition experience, & would like to transfer mid season...please call to set up a private audition. Come be a part of what's current, unique, & on top of what's happening in the dance industry.

Technique (point through feet & control movement)
Flexibility (splits, leaps, & kicks)
Triple Threats (BDC loves dancers who have Acro tricks & tumbling!- but is not a requirement)
A willingness & determination to learn, practice, & advance.

Additional Competitive Dances 2017-2018 Season
(sign ups are completly optional)
*Please note that there are many factors that go into solos & grouping of dancers. Dancers are grouped whom compliment each other onstage, & what will result in a well rounded routine. I encourage any dancer that signed up but did not receive a solo/or another dance grouping that they preferred for this season, to sign up next season. Dancers were selected/grouped per Britt's discretion (this was stated on the sign up sheet) & were completly optional outside of your mandatory Company group routines. Additional cost is involved outside of mandatory company fees etc.*
Choreography/practices will start ASAP. Please see the front desk TOMORROW (OCT 3) 4:15-7:30 pm, or call 912-826-4887/email during those hours to make an appointment (starting at 4:15 pm until 7:30 pm). All time slots set with BDC, need to be pre paid in order to make an appointment!
Thanks in advance for your cooperation. We look forward to another great competition season!
