Competition Company

Midwest Dance Mechanix has an award winning competition team that we call our "Company".  Our Company dancers are a select group of dancers that audition in the summer and train throughout the year in a variety of dance styles. 

Our Company is split into dance teams consisting of  Mini (ages 6-8), Junior (ages 9-10), Pre-Teen (ages 11-12), Teen (ages 13-15) and Senior (ages 16-18).  Dancers aged 10 & younger are required to attend one ballet class and one jazz class per week. Dancers aged 11 & up are required to take two ballet classes and one jazz class per week.  All other classes are optional unless the dancer is interested in competing in that style. 

Our hope is that dancers are not only eager to compete, but also to learn and grow as a dancer. Throughout the year, we will ask our Company dancers to commit to hard work, dedication, and a positive attitude both for themselves and for their fellow dancers and instructors.

MDM Company offers dancers the opportunity to advance and excel in many areas of dance, however, it is NOT a recreational program. Membership in the MDM Company is a wonderful opportunity as well as a serious commitment. We ask both dancer & parents to consider many factors including time commitment, work ethic, and financial obligations. Placement on MDM Company will be based on ability and performance as determined by staff and choreographers. To ensure the success of the competition year, dancers are expected to adhere to the stated criteria of MDM Dance Company contract. {see sample contract}

Company dancers will attend various conventions, competitions & master classes throughout the year to further their dance education and experience a wide variety of teachers, styles and stage experiences.
