1 Costume will be required $75-$225.  The same costume will be used all season.

Travel Attire team wear and make-up will need to be purchased.  Make-up is minimal as we still want our babies to look like babies!

Dancers will be enrolled in 3 classes per week minimum and will follow the normal tuition scale.

There will be a small company fee added to tuition each month that will cover administrative and instructor fees.

Competition Company

This company is intended for dancers 5 years and older that want to train in and really perfect his/her craft.  This is a more intensive training program and dancers will be in a competitive environment for performance time.

COMMITMENT

Dancers will attend all regional and national competitions.  3-4 regional and 1 national

Please note new to the 2018-2019 Season some dancers will attend 1-2 conventions as part of their regional competitions and will compete at these conventions.

Dancers will be placed on anywhere from 2 or more teams.

Each team requires a different costume that the dancers will wear all season.  Costumes range from $150-$400 approx.

Dancers will need team travel attire and make-up.

Dancers will have a set schedule of classes to follow each week.  

All Competition Company dancers will be on the unlimited program for classes with the exception of our Hip Hop and Tap only dancers.  Our 5-6 year old dancers will be on an unlimited program at a lower tuition scale.

Graduating Seniors and high school students that are in AP classes may be given some leeway (at the discretion of the director).

There will be a Company fee added to tuition each month that will cover administrative fees and instructor fees and travel expenses.

NUMBER OF TEAMS

We would like for MDP Company Families to participate on a minimum of 6 teams if available for your dancer(s). We know that this may not work out in some cases and we are not requiring that this is the case.  Some dancers are on as many at 13 teams and as little as 2. We will put your chid where he/she fits best and on the amount of teams we would like them on.  If you need to pull back due to financial reasons we will decide which teams to pull.

SOLOS

Please remember that teams are the most important part of the MDP Company.  If you need to cut back please cut back on Solos before cutting back on teams. A dancer cannot have 3 solos and only be on 3 teams. For each solo we would like for each dancer to be on 2 teams.  Solos cannot be added later if you are not on the appropriate amount of teams. We do suggest that dancers that are the top of their age division do 2 solos. 2 solos give the dancers more opportunities at success.  

MDance Project Convention Company

This is a Company for dancers on the Competition Company.  This Company is by invite only.  This Company requires travel outside of California.  Expenses are higher and training is even more specified.  Dancers perform and compete at Convention in addition to the normal competitions.  This Company is primarily for dancers 13 years and older but has a training program for dancers 9-12 years old.  Full details are given once you are invited on to the Company.
