The Main Street Dance Company is the resident company of Suzanne's Main Street Dance Centre. This is a very dedicated, high energy, enthusiastic group of students who range in age from 11-18 years. The company program is to enhance the students' technique, showmanship, ability to work with others and prepare them for a career in dance. This is an award winning company that performs and competes locally, regionally and nationally. Auditions for the dance company are held one a year in the spring (May or June). The company season runs for a full year starting in July.
The prerequisite for company dancers is proficiency in classical ballet, tap, jazz, general performance along with a knowledge of terminology and steps (see receptionist for syllabus). Members of the company are required to take a minimum number of classes per week including Cecchetti Ballet, Non-syllabi ballet, tap, jazz, technique class and company rehearsal. They are also required to attend master class, workshops, performances and competitions through out the year. Dance company members/parents are responsible for all tuition, workshops, competition fees, costumes, travel expenses, etc. This is a working environment for the serious student striving for excellence. Please be aware of the huge commitment required by both the dancers and their families.
Previous and current students have received scholarships to Broadway Dance Center, Steps in NYC, Edge Performing Arts in LA, Cecchetti Summer Ballet Seminar, Interlochen along with being accepted to university dance programs and dance teams. Many of the MSDC Company alumni have gone to successful professional careers in dance and the performing arts with professional dance companies, in the theater, on television and the movies.
