"The Company" is North Shore Dance Studio's Elite Performance & Competition Group. This company is specifically designed for exceptionally talented students. The Company is selected every May during our Company Auditions. We have cadette, sophomore, junior and senior levels for Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Contemporary and Hip Hop techniques. Our staff places each individual according to skill level and talent.

The Company attends several conventions and competitions in the Midwest throughout the dance season (September-July), as well as our annual winter Benefit Concert and end of the year Recitals. Over the past 15 years, "The Company", Student Performing Company has raised over $100,000 for various organizations around the country, including; The March of Dimes, The American Cancer Society, and The American Heart Association just to name a few.

All performances are required to be a part of the company. Transportation, food and lodging are each dancer’s responsibility. Carpooling is highly recommended.

If you will be a part of Jazz, Contemporary or Ballet companies, ballet class is required! If you are level IV & above you will have ballet class 2x/week. NO EXCEPTIONS. We also offer Pointe class for our level V and above dancers.

The class tuition is the same for company as a regular NSDS class.
It is based on hours/week. There is a $100 competition deposit.
Each dancer’s competition fees will vary according to how many dances he/she is in or if they are involved in a “special dance” ( i.e. solo, duo, trio). You will receive your company statement by November.

Our faculty selects students to participate in “special dances”.
There is a $15 fee/ half hour for these particular dances.
