Company at The Pointe is our exciting competitive program designed for dancers who want to grow through accelerated training, additional performances, and competition experience.
Dance is a performing art! If you love to perform, consider the benefits of becoming a member of Company at The Pointe! Company is our performance-focused competitive dance team.
We offer a flexible Company structure to allow as many dancers as possible the opportunity to participate. Company dancers perform in 3 – 4 regional competitions (3 competitions for Mini Company and 4 for Company) in addition to the Holiday Showcase, Company Preview Show, and Recital.
Dancers must audition to be placed in Company. Company dancers must also take technique classes (class requirements vary).
Company at The Pointe is a positive and uplifting competitive dance experience. Dancers work as a team to improve their technical and performance skills, and grow in work ethic, time management, confidence, and teamwork.

Company dancers learn skills earlier, at an accelerated pace, and with higher standards of mastery. Technique classes and an environment focused on growth give dedicated dancers the opportunity to develop their skills and technique while learning and perfecting their performance quality. Training begins in the summer to really help our dancers reach their full potential over the season!

Additional Learning Opportunities
Dance is a performing art, and there is no better learning opportunity than experience. Dancers learn problem solving, performing skills, adaptability, and more by performing different routines in a variety of settings. Dancers also learn from a variety of different instructors in their weekly classes and rehearsals.
A Family Environment
The Pointe’s Company dancers perform age-appropriate dances and enjoy a sense of belonging to a team, building lasting friendships. Our main goal is to use dance as a vehicle to teach life lessons that will have value in any vocation. Other goals include teaching dancers about all aspects of performing, helping them become comfortable experiencing new things, guiding them in learning to set and work towards goals, and encouraging them to compare themselves not to others, but to who they were yesterday!
