Smarty Alert: The Jami Masters School of Dance (JMSD) Junior Company and Company Auditions & Workshops for Fall 2016 will be held next week! Auditions are open to all dancers who are rising 6th-12th graders.
On JMSD Jr Co/Company:
Each Company, separated by age, has a set schedule and a specific requirement of classes to take in the summer and throughout the dance year. The required summer commitment is to dance at least 20 hours over the summer months, whether it’s with JMSD or other summer programs. However, a minimum of 10 hours is required at JMSD. The dance year requirement is to take at least two ballet classes, modern, jazz and three electives from these choices: pointe (if approved), lyrical, musical theatre, contemporary, tap and hip hop. Because there are so many classes to take, the companies are given a “company discount” of $350/month for unlimited classes. Company dancers are allowed to take any class in the studio at their level or below. Dancers will be placed in technique class levels based on the audition scores and previous teacher recommendations.
The JMSD goal for Company dancers is to be well-rounded in all forms of dance when they graduate from JMSD.
