HOW CAN I GET INTO THE AB ELITE COMPANY?

 

For dancers who are interested in the AB Elite Company, they need to speak to their instructors and let them know of their goals. Our staff will then have an ongoing dialogue with the dancer to let them know areas for improvement. 

Dancers are continually assessed in their classes, rehearsals and performances by our complete staff team. Invitations are extended based on the expectations of the AB Elite Company Policies: technique, attendance, knowledge of work/choreography, work ethic and leadership skills.

I'M NEW TO THE STUDIO - HOW CAN I BE CONSIDERED FOR THE AB ELITE COMPANY?

 

Dancers who are new to the studio can have an assessment with one or more instructors. We can then recommend which program will be a better fit, as well as what to work on going forward if they later want to be a part of the AB Elite Company.
