Top 10 CRINGIEST dances on Dance Moms

Audition for Elevate’s Company!


Company is what we call our Competition Team. Our team competes at regional and national dance competitions and conventions.

Dancing on Company means that you are committed to working hard and giving it your all, in class and on stage. We place work ethic, commitment, and attitude above all else. It’s not about winning. No matter what score the judges give you, if you can walk off stage and say you did your best, you’ve already won.

Company dancers are role models for all other dancers at the studio. They do not give up in class. They do not come to the studio with bad attitudes. They support and encourage all other dancers to do their best. If another Company member is on stage, you are in the audience cheering them on.

We hold our Company dancers to a higher standard. This standard transcends the studio and the stage. It becomes a skill that dancers keep with them throughout life. Elevate is not just our name, it’s our guiding principle.


*A quick note on Audition Prep Week. It is NOT required to audition. It's simply an option to help those who might need a little extra time learning choreography and to receive helpful technique tips or to get seen before auditions if you’re new to Elevate.

IMPORTANT: In addition to filling out the AUDITION COMMITMENT FORM below, you must register and enroll in the class, “Company Auditions 2021” on the Parent Portal (filter by Session: Camps and Intensives 2021 when enrolling). You can register in the top right hand corner of our website if you don’t already have access to the Parent Portal.

We do not have an audition fee; however, there is a Company fee. The Company fee goes towards props, prop transportation, paying instructors and staff to attend competitions, team bonding events, extra choreography sessions, administrative fees, etc., etc., etc. This fee is $350. The full amount is due by the Company meeting on August 19th.

In order to audition, you must pay a non-refundable deposit of $100 which will go towards that Company fee.

Why do we do this?

In short, we want you to commit to our team before auditioning. Auditions are not a time to try a studio out and “see what you get.” An enormous amount of time is put into creating groups after auditions. If you audition and then decide not to join our team, you have just taken away a spot from another dancer, and it requires our choreographers to recreate their groups.

This deposit, due at sign up, tells us that you are committed.

If you do not make the team, you will be given a full refund.

*This must be filled out prior to auditioning.

Erin Markey is an American writer, comedian, and performance artist. Markey's work combines elements of cabaret theater and comedy and often incorporates stories of her childhood in the Midwest. The New York Times has described Markey as having "a cult following as an alt-cabaret star with swaggering confidence and off-kilter sense of humor."

In SINGLET, genre-defying artist Erin Markey draws on their longstanding friendship and working relationship with actor Emily Davis to create a performance that maps the bonds and hysteria of earned intimacy. Combining Markey’s singular style with a host of influences—spanning Genet’s The Maids, celebrity psychotherapist Esther Perel’s available-on-Audible couples counseling sessions, Notes on a Scandal, Elena Ferrante’s Neopolitan Quartet and Precious Moments® Collectible Dolls — this kaleidoscopic world premiere production grapples with the desire, rivalry, vulnerability, and subterfuge that bind two people together. By turns tenacious and tender, SINGLET reimagines the economies of power between friends, families, and wrestlers.

Episode: 110



As a black female dancing body I am constantly investigating different methods of world-building so as to have a self created limitless potential for possibility within a society where my body has been deemed one that is impossible. In navigating this possibility I am looking to re-claim the stakes attached to my dancing body which find their ways into my work by relentlessly going after feelings of the fantastic. Feelings of unbelievable swelling. Feelings of pleasure and multiple possibilities. I want many things therefore I feel my work is rooted in a constant friction; moving back and forth between variant ideas and placings of movement and knowing. Friction finds itself inside of rhythm and directionality - two foundational components to my making - because friction can lead to surprises. And I love surprises. A third foundational component is physicality which often finds itself serving as a reactionary tool to the rhythm and directionality. Physicality is valued in my work because of the ecstasy that it can build in the body. Ecstasy building is a deep part of my physical practice because of the myriad of states that can result from it. A swelling takes place in the body, in the mind, in the mood, in the meaning, in the relationships to other bodies and in the relationship to space. What is that feeling between moving bodies? That giving and taking of euphoria that is downright addictive to locate, tirelessly rubbing up against variant possibilities of the body as it folds into different times, spaces, and relationships to those around it. What I’m building for myself and others through my work is something of a survival strategy; something of a method to the madness.
