MHSB CO. is now entering its 18th season. Students from ages 10 and up are invited to audition for the dance form of their choice - Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop or Contemporary. Dancers are welcome to audition for all of the dance forms if they wish. Those who are chosen to participate meet for ten Sundays to learn challenging and creative choreography from a guest dance teacher. Students are required to be fully committed to their company and are expected to attend every rehearsal. All MHSB company members must re-audition each year. There will be a maximum of 18 students per company. The Company encourages comradery and team spirit among the dancers.
Company dancers are provided with extra performing opportunities in addition to their year end recitals. In the past, the companies have performed at such events as The Kiwanis Dance Festival, Sur La Pointe Dance Festival, The Dance Connection, the Pegasus Benefit Show, The Daffodil Charity Ball and demonstrations for LuLu Lemon Athletica.
Once again this year, MHSB will be asking the company member to purchase a company jacket, which is required to be worn at all events. The cost of the jacket is covered by the students and is not included in the company fee. The company fee will cover the 10 weeks of classes, extra rehearsals, and a costume, We hope that many dancers come out for the 2019-2020 auditions. This in itself is a wonderful experience and gives the students a chance to feel the energy, nervousness and excitement of an audition.
Company Auditions: Please note students only need to audition once for each style.
