Being a member of Company is an extremely rewarding experience for both your dancer as well as their families.

Learning compassion for your team mates as well as other dancers, respect for teachers, trainers and staff, pride and humility, courage, and tenacity are just some of the qualities your dancer can expect to become familiar with during their time in Company. We are very proud of our dancers and feel privileged to have them with us.
A PCDA Company member is required to participate from auditions in May through Nationals the following summer. This time period can and will consist of several out of town competitions, local performances, private lessons on weekends and various other workshops and events the studio may participate in.
