2020-2021 Company Members
Byrdie Ella Coleman
Chloe Bell Garcia
Riley Wolfe Rach
First of all, we have to say how incredibly proud we are of every single dancer that auditioned for us. We were absolutely blown away by each of you. When choosing performing company members, we follow a consistent process and consider each and every dancer very carefully. You see us with our score sheets during the actual auditions, but what you don’t see before and after the auditions are the many, MANY hours we spend (along with the other company directors and teachers) in discussions and meetings to make sure any decision we make is well informed. This all happens behind the scenes, after hours, and is not something we take lightly.
We talked about this in each of the auditions, but please keep in mind that each of you are individual and unique. No two dancers are the same. You may be placed in a different company from one of your best friends that you have been dancing with for a few years. This is normal. It happens each and every year and is usually a great growing process. You may have the opportunity to be a leader in your company. You may have the opportunity to grow in your company. You will make new friends and have new experiences! We hope that you will trust that we placed you carefully and respect the process.
It’s because of all the honest effort and careful consideration we put into this process that we stand by our decisions as final. We know and understand that, after results are posted, some of you may want to speak with us to discuss the outcome. We welcome this and will schedule time to talk with you in the coming weeks, but we would like to ask the following from you:
1. It will take us a little time to get back to each person. You are all important to us, so we ask that you grant us some grace in our response time!
2. Please respect that we stand by our decisions, and they are final.
3. Regardless of whether you do or do not get the result you are hoping for, the hard work doesn’t end! We encourage you to always continue striving for that next goal, pursuing your love of dance, working hard to improve your technique, and keep having fun!
Thank you again for choosing to audition for Prodigy Dance Centre's Performance Company! We’re looking forward to watching you all grow as dancers!
