Dance Company is a performing group at Deerfield High School. Freshmen through senior students who are interested in all types of dance can take part and develop technical skills, increase knowledge of techinque, choreography, and production aspects of a dance performance. Dance Company performs in an annual spring dance concert, which includes student choreographed work, as well as professional guest choreographers. Dancers also have had the opportunity to work with guest artists in master classes and workshops in-house and through travel opportunities to Los Angeles and New York pre-pandemic.
Dance Company auditions will be held in October 18th and 19th 2022 from 3:30-6:30 in the Dance Studio. Dancers will learn three short audition pieces (contemporary/ lyrical, musical theatre, and hip hop) and audition in time slots the following day. Please watch our Instagram: @dhsdcomps and this website for updated information on how to be included!
