What is Junior Company?
Junior Company is a Competitive Company at Bobbie’s geared for dancers who want to compete part time, ages 7+. Junior Company will train together throughout the week, do team events, compete and attend a convention in the Spring! Junior Company will be required to take all their technique classes together as a team as to advance at a more rapid pace.
If you are interested in Junior Company Hip Hop Crew ONLY there is a separate audition. You are automatically part of the Junior Company Hip Hop Crew IF you audition for Junior Company and are accepted.
Competition? Convention? What does that mean?
In addition to their required technique classes, Junior Company will have choreography rehearsal during the week. This rehearsal will be for learning and cleaning their competition dances. In the Spring, the dancers will attend 2 regional dance competitions where they will compete their number against other dancers their age from across Southern California. Awards are given out based on the judges adjudication scores. Judges will be looking to award points for stellar performance, technique and execution of the dance.
Junior Company will also be attending 1 Dance Convention. A Dance Convention is a weekend-long event where dancers from the area come together to take two days of master classes. Top teachers from across the country are brought in to work with the dancers in a multitude of dance styles.
What amount of time is required to participate in Junior Company?
Junior Company dancers will train at Bobbie’s two days a week. They will train in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Lyrical/Contemporary and learn Choreography.
Additional events will usually take place on the weekends. A yearlong calendar of additional events will be released during the summer.
