Congratulations to our 2018-2019

2018-2019 ACSD Companies

Thank you all so much for trying out!  You did an amazing job and we are so proud of you!  If you did not make the company that you were hoping for, please make an appointment with Ms.Laura (through Ms.Mandy) to set goals for the upcoming year.

All new company members must attend at least two weeks of summer study at Ann Carroll School of Dance in order to keep your place.  All new Platinum members must attend at least two weeks of summer study at Ann Carroll School of Dance in order to keep your place.  Taking two months off in the summer can be detrimental to your dancing.  It is highly recommended that all company members participate in our summer programs.  If your name has “pending camp” after it means that the faculty feel that continuing your study throughout the summer will help you be fully prepared for the next level.

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!
