Audition Process & Requirements

Our audition process is more unique.  Rather than see a dancer on one day for one hour, we like to have time to get to know the dancer, see him/her dance in a group setting with other dancers (of the same level), assess the dancer’s areas of strength and areas that need improvement so we can best determine which company group is most suited to the dancer, setting him/her up for long term success. 

Dancers will take classes during our 6 week summer session running July 1-August 8, 2024.  Requirements can be completed over a couple weeks or all six weeks, this is the dancer’s choice. To register for Summer Classes CLICK HERE   Avanti Summer Intensive is also required for the audition process for ages 6+.  To register for our 2024 Summer Intensive CLICK HERE Please read further below for audition requirements by age.

Step One: Complete the online application located below. There will be a $25.00 application fee paid at the time the application is submitted. Once received our detailed company information packet will be emailed to the parent.

ADC Company

AVANTI’s Performance Company is a national award-winning collective of young artists, ages 3-18, who show extreme devotion to dance and aspire to take their abilities to the next level. Company members train extensively in classical dance (ballet and pointe) and commercial dance (contemporary, modern, jazz, lyrical, tap and hip-hop).

As a result, ADC Performance Company members become extremely versatile, well-rounded dancers and performers. Company members have the opportunity to take a wide variety of technique and style classes throughout the week, including choreography sessions with top guest and faculty choreographers, where the dancers work fervently on pieces which are presented at competitions regionally and nationally, as well as having the opportunity to attend in-house master classes and workshops taught by respected industry professionals throughout the year.

While Performance Company is a competitive dance company, members are also able to contribute through their performances at community charitable events. Company members gain more than just dance training; they are a close-knit family who share a unique bond in their passion for dance. Drawing strength from each other, they gain confidence and an outstanding work ethic that will continue to be a solid foundation helping them in all aspects of their life.
