We are excited to inform you about East Bay Dance Company’s performance dance team, The Company. The Company is an accelerated program where dancers compete in Regional Competitions and perform at local events such as The Warriors Halftime Show! We compete at National finals in Southern California every summer. Our Team has won National Titles yearly and we have also caught the attention of Casting Directors and Television Producers in the CA area! Dancers train during the school season 1.5-5 hours weekly, depending on the style of dance. They also attend two weeks of summer intensives. EBDC's Company Team requires a large amount of a dancer's time. It is highly encouraged to not participate in any other sports, organizations or classes such as acting, singing, swim team, soccer, etc. EBDC does not accept dancers missing rehearsal due to other obligations such as sports games, cheerleading, etc. Our Company Members are counting on their peers to be present and hardworking at every rehearsal, competition and performance. EBDC does not contract Company dancers who have siblings participating at other Competitive dance studios.

EBDC's NEW Company H. S.!
We understand many of our High School age students seek a flexible schedule. We present this opportunity this season while continuing our dedication to the integrity of technical progression in all areas of dance class. Company H.S. members are only required to attend 1 day a week of classes. This program is for accelerated dancers. By Invitation & Audition Only.
1 technique class and 2 rehearsals back-to-back
*Only for dancers with 5+ consecutive years of EBDC's Dance Team - Designed for Sophomores and up, Only!
Dancers will not necessarily have to be available all days of their designated choreography weeks, as they will be split up between the different teams in each age group. Mandatory Team Choreography dates for all '17-'18 teams will begin TBA.. If dancers do not attend their Choreography Session, they can not stay on Team. No Exceptions! Dancers will be charged choreography fees per routine during the Choreography Session in August.
We will be using the same warm-ups The Company used last year so veterans can re-use their investment! We will be ordering them for the new team members the week of TBA; cost will be $250 *subject to change. We will be embroidering these with the dancer’s names, so they will be yours forever.
The Company Team dances compete and are performed much more often than our Recital dances. Thus, the cost is higher than what is found at a recreational level. The cost starting per costume will range from $250-$350, per routine *subject to change. This does not always include the cost of accessories, shoes, tights, jewelry or make-up. Dancers will also be required to purchase a pre-assembled make-up kit through M.A.C. Cosmetics.
