Movéo Dance Company is the highest level and requires the most commitment. Company members perform in various school activities, they travel to different places (Tucson, Chicago, New York, San Francisco...etc.) to take classes from prominent dance professionals, and their expectation to fund-raise is higher. They are also required to attend after school rehearsals and socials/bonding dates. We have plenty of studio dancers on company, but it can be difficult to juggle both at times. We try to be flexible, but sometimes it is necessary to have our company dancers with us instead of at the studio. This is an audition based class only. Auditions are a four day process, and require teacher recommendations, a letter of intent, and parent permission. Also, students who are auditioning for company and make it to the final day of cuts will be required to perform a piece of original work that they have choreographed themselves. This solo should showcase each dancer's strongest technique and should be a good representation of them as a choreographer. Please see the Auditions Page for more details and the audition packet.
Advanced is the next level below Company, and also comes with a bit more commitment than the other levels. Some after school rehearsal is required, fund-raising is necessary, and they too are expected to perform in various activities held at school. This is an audition based class only. Auditions are two days and do not require an audition packet. Please see the Auditions page for more details.
Intermediate is a one year course designed for students with 3-5 years of dance experience. This class focuses primarily on building technique in ballet, jazz and modern dance styles. Students will continue to expand their knowledge of dance history and vocabulary. They will also begin to study choreography and improvisation. Auditions are one day only. Please see the Auditions page for more details.
Beginning is designed for students who have 0-3 years of dance experience. This course will emphasize the techniques of ballet, jazz and modern dance. Students will also begin lessons involving dance history and vocabulary. No audition is required. It is strongly recommended that this course be taken for the full year.
