Our CAST Company Program has been around since 1996, providing exceptional, well-rounded training and a second home for our dancers.
Our companies have performed at many local, and non-local events including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Land Shark Stadium for the Marlins games, Half Time Shows for the Miami Heat and Dolphins, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, New York, Chicago, Puerto Rico, Las Vegas, and many more exciting destinations.
Although showcasing our award-winning choreography and dancers is important to us, our team is much more than that.
It is important to us at Dancer's Gallery that we teach the next generation valuable life skills to enrich their futures. Such as perseverance, kindness, teamwork, respect, self-discipline, and a growth mindset. Our dance family has a bond like no other, from our fantastic dance parents who go above and beyond for our dance studio to our instructors who put in many hours of work for the growth of their students. We strive for excellence and encourage our dancers to do the same. Our competition team is more than just collecting trophies and pins. It's about being better human beings while being well-rounded with meticulous training by the best teachers in the industry.
The placement of students in our dance company is the decision of a panel of judges and the director of our school. Once selected, they are separated into groups based on age and level. CAST members must devote at least 10 hours of training a week as well as extra rehearsals and intensives to prepare them for upcoming competitions and local community and artistic performances. Students interested in auditioning for any of the companies should contact the studio for more information about the audition process.
