TIM Performing Company Teams

The T.I.M. intensive performance/competition teams were established to give those students who expressed a “more than recreational” intensive interest in their dance and their dance studies the opportunity to do so. Company members are those students who have excelled throughout the dance year and/or possess the maturity and character necessary to handle dance instruction at this level. We do our best to encourage the student to be the best they can be however much of the dancer’s advancement lies with the dancer and how much they practice. As with any extracurricular activity that encourages personal growth and self-confidence, learning a structured art form requires loyalty and passion from each student and loving support & encouragement from each parent. We at the studio believe in our role in the installation of honoring commitment. The formation and participation of these teams is just one way of demonstrating that commitment. Our mission is not just teaching dance routines but to aid in providing these students with some of the traits we deem important for their future: Responsibility, Dedication, Team Work, Accountability and Obligation while establishing lasting relationships with friends, mentors and having a lot of fun!

Mini & Petite Dancers

Mini & Petite Level Company Dancers are invited for next season in early May from TIM recreational dance classes. TIM Instructors look for attributes such as attendance, passion, talent, dedication, parental support, commitment, and attitude when deciding who to invite. Since ballet is the foundation of dance, being enrolled in ballet classes is a plus! Minis compete in Tap, Jazz & Hip-Hop only. Petites: Tap, Jazz, Hip-Hop & Contemporary.

Junior & Elite Dancers

Auditions are held at the end of May each season after Spring Recital @ TIM School of Dance for Junior & Elite Levels. We offer an audition workshop class for all elements (Tap, Jazz, Contemporary & Hip-Hop) the day prior to auditions. Workshop & Audition is FREE of Charge. Dancers will have 15 minutes per element to learn a 32 count combination in which they will audition with the following day.  Dancers may choose the elements that wish to compete in. A Ballet audition is required for all members acquiring membership in the Tap, Jazz and/or Contemporary company teams. Must wear a leotard, tights, ballet shoes & hair secured from face for audition and subsequently in classes if they make the team. No ballet audition required for Hip-Hop company. The ballet audition is presented to the dancers in front of the judges.

Company Team Tips

  • Judges are chosen from professionals from dance community
  • Choreography hired out for all core routines
  • Fundraising Opportunities
  • Azalea Festival Participation, Summer Training Intensives & Spring Recital (all three shows) required
  • Approx 4 Competitions and 1 Convention throughout Dance Season (may change from year to year)
  • Teams do not compete in Ballet, however, it is required for training & technique. (except for Hip-Hop only dancers)
  • To be a member of the competition team we do have requirements and a code of conduct that must be followed by each dancer. Regular attendance is a must and practice outside of class is essential.
  • Competitive dancers MUST be enrolled at TIM for at least one year prior to being on team.
