Dance Companies Mission Statement:
The goal for the SNAP Companies is to foster a positive, character-building experience for bright, young, motivated dancers. In addition, we provide a pre-professional dance experience, by exposing members to different choreographers, styles, performance venues, and other dancers. This is a group in which your child can excel by being pushed to his or her fullest potential. The successful company dancer will be disciplined with her/his dancewear, hair, etc., self-motivated to arrive early, willing to practice on his/her own, and driven to improve every day. She/he will also be a role-model for younger dancers, be involved at the studio, be a good community citizen, be a great team member, and be kind and generous to everyone.
There are 3 levels of SNAP company experience:
The Snappies Mini Dance Company
The Apprentice Dance Company
Benefits of participating in one of SNAP’s Dance Companies:

Auditions to participate in the 2020-2021 Companies will be held VIRTUALLY on Saturday, June 13! Dancers must complete an audition form AND register and pay for the audition (this “class” is found in the Spring session, Saturday afternoon timeslot) prior to June 12. Dancers interested in participating in our program in the future are expected to be taking class at SNAP currently, specifically Ballet and Jazz, and at least one of each class will be required for Summer study. Attendance to the audition is mandatory for everyone.
