At the Dance Attic, we value every student — young and old, beginners and advanced students alike. It is our aim to offer a quality dance education to all students. Some students choose to make dance their primary extra-curricular activity and participate in dance at a very high level. These are members of our Dance Company.
CLICK HERE to let us know if you are interested in our 24-25 Competitive Team! We will host an informative meeting for any new dancers interested in joining the team on March 14th at 7:45! We look forward to seeing you there!
Participation in the Dance Company occurs by invitation, with the teaching faculty determining annually by auditioning those students who exhibit the dedication, attitude, and proficiency to represent the studio in public performances and competitions.In addition to attending several extra classes, Company members perform in shows and exhibitions around the Triangle area. They also attend workshops and competitions around the region. In recent years, we have traveled to Myrtle Beach and Ocean Isle Beach, as well as Raleigh, Durham, Rocky Mount and Louisburg for local competitions.
It is important for all Company members, prospective members, and parents to understand what is involved in being a member of the Dance Company. Participation in Company is a great deal of fun, but it requires a significant commitment to dance and a good deal of extra time and effort. Taking a dance class is the same as participating in any other extracurricular activity. Being a Company member is like being on a select sports team and requires a sincere commitment to the team. Both students and parents should decide if they have the time to commit to the Dance Company. No matter how talented a student is, if they don’t have time to put dance first, and if they don’t have enough parental support, it may be better not to participate in Company.
Students and parents interested in Company participation must also recognize the expectations related to attitude. As members of our team, Company members and their parents are expected to support and encourage each other and to exhibit impeccable sportsmanship at all times. Our students — without exception — are expected to treat each other, their teachers, parents, team leaders, managers, competition judges and fellow students from other studios with the highest level of respect. Winning trophies is nice, but representing ourselves with class and dignity is an absolute requirement.

To be a dancer on the competitive team all dancers are required to take at least 5 classes a week. Pricing for these classes are different based on your dancers age and class placement in our recreational program. You can review pricing for recreational classes on our Recreational Tuition Guide. As far as additional fees associated, your TDAC fees are due during the summer prior to the start of the season ($550 split over June and July) which you can review what is included in the linked contract above. Additionally, once the fall season begins there is a $25 monthly fee for TDAC Production choreography. To participate in additional dances within the TDAC portion of our program dancers are able to request participation in “invitational routines” which have additional costs associated. Other administrative, choreography, workshop, competition fee etc. information is available in the contract above. Please note that the contract will be updated and edited for the 24-25 season.
