Our Joy team members must fulfill their commitment to the team in two ways: classroom time and rehearsal time.
Joy team members are required to complete a weekly curriculum of classes designed to develop them technically as dancers. These classes are set apart from rehearsals for competition dances. The company members will be placed in ballet, jazz, lyrical and hip hop classes based on their current technical level of dancing. Additionally, the company members will attend one company class together where they will work on technical elements and choreography.
All Joy team members are required to perform and compete in a selected number of dances. They will be required to attend all rehearsals scheduled for those dance performances. The single or series of required dances will be based on their company group. We will also perform in Community Outreach events 1-2 times a month at many places like Senior Living, Children’s Homes, and Festivals.
Joy schedule perform monthly. We hope you are as excited to bring JOY everywhere we go as we are. We all know it’s needed now more than ever! The weeks we have team performances there will be no rehearsal. Unless the teacher requires a rehearsal, we will only meet at the performance location that week. We will have performance schedule for the year in September and start performing in October.
