At Center Stage Dance Studio we offer a variety of options for a student’s dance training. For dancers who show exceptional talent and potential, we offer a disciplined curriculum of training known as the “Ensemble”.
The Ensemble program offers a disciplined classroom with a focus on technique & advancement. Students receive the highest level of training that we offer, in addition to opportunities to train with guest and master teachers throughout the year. They gain performance experience by taking part in competition events; offering dancers the chance to see the other creative ideas being developed in the dance world. The Ensemble program strives to build self-esteem, good sportsmanship and new friendships. There are 5 Ensemble teams at CSDS; Amethyst, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire, & Diamond. Placement is dependent on both age and level of ability and is by audition during the month of June. If a dancer or parent is interested in learning more about being considered for an Ensemble Team, please contact us.
CSDS offers Ensemble members the most well rounded education and exposure through the repertory program. A repertory piece includes Solos, Duos, and Trios that are choreographed specifically for the dancer(s) and placed in the season’s competitions. Reps are optional for Ruby Ensemble students, and required on varying levels for all other levels. Teachers place dancers in the best suited genre and routine.
