HEARTBEAT PERFORMING COMPANIES

Heartbeat Studios’ performing companies provide a year-round opportunity for dancers to perform in front of an audience and to work as part of a team while improving their dance skills.  Companies perform locally at prestigious venues and occasional out of state performances such as cruise ships!  Company members are required to pay a fee to cover uniforms and other costs associated with company work.  Company dancers are required to take an advance class in their chosen discipline and a Dance Technique or Ballet class in addition to their Company rehearsal. 

The goals of the companies are:

  • To give students opportunities to perform.
  • To develop self-respect and respect for others.
  • To promote good self-esteem and confidence.
  • To promote good self-image.
  • To learn professional performance behavior.
  • To learn life skills, including responsibility, punctuality, commitment, and the importance of teamwork.
  • To have fun and help each dancer explore their own passion for dance!
