2019-2020 Company Auditions: Friday, June 28, 2019. If you are interested in auditioning or need info about our company, please email us at email@example.com. We highly recommend taking our summer classes for your age level to prepare for auditions.
The CSOD Company (previously the Encore Dance Co.) was established in 1991.
It is comprised of dancers ages 7 and up who compete at the top level at dance conventions and competitions. CSOD Co. dancers put in 8 - 15 hours of classtime/rehearsal per week to prepare for performances.
Company dancers take class in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and contemporary each week. Dancers may not compete in all styles, but will take all technique classes required in order to become more well-rounded dancers and performers. Dancers auditions for each routine they compete in. Most dancers have a minimum of 2 or 3 competition numbers each year, but some have up to 8 routines.
Dancers attend at least three dance convention/competitions and two competitions each year. Additional, optional, conventions and competitions may be offered each season. Most of these events are held in the DFW area. Occasionally we attend an out of town event in the region (Texas/Oklahoma area). We do attend a Nationals convention out-of-state every other summer. Our next Nationals will be in the summer of 2020. Company dancers also performing at community events including the Allen Christmas Parade, city arts events, Allen American Hockey Games and more.

The CSOD Prep Company is for ages 6-9. These dancers take about 3 hours of prep company class each week. They are required to take ballet and jazz and are encouraged to take other styles if interested. Prep dancers compete at 2-3 competitions and attend 1 convention each year. For dancers new to competition, Prep is a great introduction to competitive dance.
Currently Prep Company is by invitation only. We strongly suggest taking summer classes to prepare to join. If you are interested in being a part of our Prep Company, email us at email@example.com.
