Company Auditions 2017

 

The ACSD Companies represent the most dedicated and gifted students at each level that our school has to offer.

The ACSD Companies are comprised of students invited by the teachers through audition in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip-Hop, and Voice to represent the school at concerts, conventions, competitions and our travels across the United States and beyond. Extra classes in those subjects and other training classes are taken by all company members each week. As ambassadors of ACSD, Companies are governed by strict rules and obligations which benefit them and the school.

The Company students receive their technical work in their regular classes and their performance skills in their Company classes. An active Company Parents’ Club helps to support the students in certain opportunities which the teachers decide are important to their training.

Auditions for our upcoming season are on May 6th, 2017 at our Harpeth Studio.  Please call the studio at (615)790-6468 for further information.

ACSD Takes NYC!

This summer our company dancers had the opportunity to go on a dance trip to New York City.  The dancers took classes at Broadway Dance Center and Alvin Ailey.  They learned choreography from Matilda and Aladdin from Broadway cast members, took Horton technique, West African dance, hip hop, tap and contemporary.  The dancers saw two Broadway shows, visited the 911 Memorial, shopped in China Town and toured Times Square.  It was the trip of a lifetime.  A special thank you to Thomas Tours for organizing such an amazing adventure for us!
