NEW – Apprentice Program


NEW!! The FIRM Dance Company is restructuring their Apprentice Competitive Program for the 2018-2019 dance year to give more students the opportunity to experience competitive dance with additional performance opportunities. An Apprentice is considered an active member of The FIRM Dance Company and will participate in Company activities and community events with Full Time Members. Our Apprentice Program will allow dancers to participate in dance competitions without the time and financial demands of a full-time competitive dancer.  Dancers accepting membership in the Apprentice Program will be required to attend weekly level & technique classes with full-time members but will have their own dance(s), choreography sessions, and rehearsal time. Apprentice Members will only participate in 2 of the 4 competitions scheduled for a full-time member. Apprentice members who exhibit the drive, potential and proper attitude may be asked to perform in a full-time member competition piece(s) by invitation. The FIRM Apprentice Level is open to beginner-intermediate level dancers ages 6-18. Apprentice members are selected through the same audition process as a full-time member by attending a workshop offered during DanceARTS SummerFEST 2018 Series for their respective age and/or level.
