DC Dance LA Company

We have Performance Companies and Teams for all ages and hold auditions annually. Performance Companies participate in our annual Nutcracker, community performances, End of the Year Recital and one competition/convention. Competition teams attend more competitions and conventions throughout the season. Some include Starbound, Hollywood Vibe, Hall of Fame, West Coast Dance Explotion, Nuvo and 24/Seven.  Being on the Company and Team requires a high level of commitment, discipline and intentional practice, yet for those truly passionate about dance, it's one of the most rewarding and enriching experiences with friendships that last a lifetime.
