Company Dancers

Company Dancers

Company is a special audition group within Metro Dance Academy. Company members perform and compete throughout the year at various community performances and competitions. The members of this company also attend dance conventions and workshops within the Pacific Northwest. Members are cast in multiple routines in various dance styles. We also have a Pre Company group created for dancers interested in learning more about the competitive dance world. Pre Company dancers compete at two competitions per year and are not required to attend conventions. Auditions are held once a year. If you have any questions or would like further information regarding Company or Pre Company please reach out to Danceatmetro@gmail.com.
