REQUIRED TECHNIQUE CLASSES
Being a part of the competitive dance company, students are required to take a set of classes weekly. REQUIRED classes include but are not limited to ballet/pointe, tap, jazz, Strength and Conditioning/Turns and Leaps, and lyrical. Additional classes we offer are hip hop, contemporary, modern, acro/tumbling, acting/musical theater, and stretch and strength.
SUMMER CLASS REQUIREMENTS
For our competitive dance team, a large majority of the competition dances are learned and set for the season in the summer months (June-August). Dancers are not only required to come to regularly scheduled technique classes, they are also required to come to an ALL Tuesday or Friday rehearsal times and may even need to use weekends for setting pieces.
MASTER CLASS REQUIREMENTS
In addition to regular summer classes, we do have professional working dancers come in during the summer and throughout the year that hold master classes in various dance styles. All company members are required to take 1-4 classes from the guest when they visit.
SUMMER CAMP REQUIREMENTS
Part of Miller’s Dance Studio’s regular summer schedule, we do offer a variety of summer intensives that dancers can take. Though these are not required, they are encouraged for dancers.
As dancers start going back to school, we use the last two weeks of August to finish up all competition dances. During these two weeks, dancers will be required to come at specific times and days during week.
