Itty Bitty Company

MUST BE age 5 at the time of tryout & 8 OR UNDER AS OF JANUARY 1, 2018

Each Itty company will require between 2 and 4 days per week of practice, but the kids only do quick 20 minute sessions in order to learn and reinforce a routine they will perform and compete. Itty Bitty Company is a very low key introduction for our young dancers to experience the exciting world of competitions. The kids must be at least 5 years old when they tryout and must be 8 or under by January 1st, 2018. The tryout is a basic assessment of whether or not the kids are able to do the required skills and learn and perfect a routine quickly. Please understand that if kids do not have the required skills, they should not tryout or most likely will not make it because it is too stressful on them and on me if they cannot do what is asked of them. Please consult your child’s current dance instructor PRIOR to the tryout.
