The audition is free, and there are no additional fees to perform with GGDC/GGDC2. Company dancers pay a set price for their monthly classes at Gary Geis School of Dance, and are asked to purchase any required dancewear (NOT costumes) that they will use during the season.
The audition will consist of a ballet class, followed by jazz and/or modern combinations. New students are welcome, and encouraged, to audition!
GGDC consists of upper level Intermediate, and Advanced dancers, and is divided into Apprentices, and Company Members. Many of these dancers are also en pointe, although it is not a requirement. GGDC dancers and Apprentices take a minimum of 4 classes per week (depending on their class level) and many take up to 7 or 8 classes per week in addition to rehearsals for upcoming performances.
GGDC2 consists of true Intermediate level dancers. These dancers take a minimum of 3 classes per week in addition to rehearsals for upcoming performances.
In addition to weekly classes, dancers may rehearse on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, depending on company placement and casting for upcoming performances.
