Do you love the art of dance? Darlington Dance Company provides performance opportunities for dedicated dancers who are ready to take their commitment to the next level. New dance works will be created using diverse techniques, including modern, ballet, jazz and hip hop. The dancers’ performance quality and love of dance will grow as they discover their creative talents individually and as a team. Performances will be at Darlington and various sites in the community throughout the year.

Requirements: Company Members must be enrolled in at least one Darlington dance technique class (ballet recommended), and have at least three years of dance experience.
Why should I join?
Joining Darlington Dance Company will give each student invaluable technical performance experience in a variety of dance forms. It cultivates a sense of camaraderie between students and inspires them to have pride and project confidence in their creative voices. Darlington Dance Company was specifically designed to include children ages 10 and up to encourage older students to mentor and serve as good role models to the younger members.
What will be expected of me?
- Dancers accepted into the Company must take a minimum of one technique class per week. Any Academic-Year Darlington dance class is acceptable.
- Attendance is critical to the success of the Company. Any dancer that misses two Company classes will NOT be allowed to perform in the following performance.
- Dancers are expected to arrive on time for their classes.
- In addition to Company tuition, there may be additional costs for performance costuming. This will be kept to a minimum as we will be drawing on costume ideas that may already exist in the dancer’s wardrobes or in our own costume closet.
