At the Bellvue Dance Center, we believe in a philosophy of performance, not competition. Our Company dancers are an elite group of students who perform in all of our recitals and community events and participate in community volunteer opportunities. Students audition for a spot on one of two dance companies, Petite and Performance. These company spots are designed not only to advance a dancer's skill level and confidence, but also to teach time management skills, patience, work ethic, teamwork, and communication skills. If you or your dancer is interested in auditioning for Company, please read through the requirements below, and then fill out the information form at the bottom.
