In our Troupe and Company programs auditioned students will be given unique opportunities to fine tune and develope there skills in a more focused environment. AOD will serve each one of these students as they strive to reach their full potential. (Our company program produces nationally competitive dancers.) Both programs work under the expert guidance of a passionate and compassionate faculty. We require each dancer to be a contributing team member and have the desire to be part of an ensemble. Our dancers use the knowledge they have developed through their training with these programs to help them become confident individuals, structured students academically, and physically strong people. Some alumni of the program have chosen careers in dance or related fields. We hope all dancers will come to appreciate the soul and beauty of the art form and enjoy the mind-body-spirit connection involved in the expression of dance.
“Every person’s body is infused with the spirit of dance. It simply lives in each of us, waiting for us to exercise its powers of freedom and joy.” –Gloria Duval
