GENERAL INFORMATION on SDC

SDC is a company founded in 2007, for serious dancers interested in more intensive training and who have a passion for dance. Auditions are held usually the first week of January for that year’s Company. The company explores a variety of dance disciplines while developing dance technique with a focus on training the well-rounded performer. Must have ballet, tap, and jazz shoes and must be prepared every week in appropriate dance attire. Attendance is mandatory. Those who have already been a part of the company, are STRONGLY encouraged to continue their dance training through the summer with drop in classes and fall SDC Prep. Benchmarks for the levels are on the website (click here for benchmarks) or you may request an assessment by an SSPA instructor.  All dancers must take additional classes in addition to SDC.  During auditions, choreographers will pick featured dancers and soloists for our final dance concert which is usually held in mid to late May or early June.

SDC is a 5 month commitment.  Those who have been apart of the company in the prior year or past years must audition each January.  Dancers new to Spindrift of all levels are welcome!! We recommend at least a year of classes of any style before auditioning for SDC.  Placement in Level I, II, III or IV is determined at auditions. All those auditioning must bring a head shot ,dance bio, and be dressed in dance attire ready to dance. No other preparation needed.)

Fall- SDC PREP is open to all and is 2 hours a week for 3 months
Winter/Spring- SDC is by audition and is 4 hours a week (2 days) for 5 months
SUMMER- Summer Dance Intensives are offered and encouraged to maintain and advance the level of technique and physical fitness to be prepared for Fall and Winter.
