Our CAST program is our Competitive Company made up of young, pre-professional artists ages 6-18 who have a love for dance and are ready to take that passion to the next level. Our CAST performs all season long, competes in multiple regional competitions throughout the Spring, and attends Nationals over the summer. Our dancers train regularly in a variety of styles such as ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, acro, tap, musical theatre, and ballroom. We strive to provide great technique-based training along with nurturing performance and love for the stage. Our CAST dancers take a variety of classes with guest teachers during our intensives and master classes throughout the year and also get to work directly with some of the hottest and upcoming favorite choreographers local and from across the United States for a few of their season competitive pieces. In addition to competitions and conventions, we also participate in community events, charity events, and local performance showcases.
Some of our favorite performances include:
- Walt Disney World
- NYC St Patrick’s Day Parade
- Puerto Rico
- Royal Caribbean Cruises
- Carnival Cruise Lines
- Las Vegas
- Kevin Black Productions
- Universal Studios
Our mission is to make well-rounded, strong dancers and great humans that leave our program with life skills to set them up for success. We have had many alumni continue their paths to either professional dance or other fields that require the lessons taught to them from their experience in CAST.
- Goal-oriented with a growth mindset
- Self-motivation and discipline
- Good sportsmanship
- Ability to handle adversity
To provide students with a safe and fun environment conducive to learning the responsibility, dedication, and commitment needed to achieve a higher level of technical skills and performance quality.
Competition Company Dancers are separated by age and level of experience. There are three performing and competition companies from ages 8-18. CASTmates (ages 8-10), 2nd CAST (ages 10-13) and 1st CAST (ages 14-17). These girls have a minimum requirement of 2-4 ballet classes per week along with their other technique classes and company rehearsals. They work hard and play hard.
