The Just Dance! senior company is selected through audition and has an average age of 14 years old. Senior company dancers are usually 13-17 years old, but a dancer’s age is just one factor that is considered for team placement. Height, ability, maturity, team composition and many other factors are also considered.
Junior and senior company dancers are held to the highest standards at Just Dance! A high level of work ethic, determination, and a willingness to commit to dance training are essential in these companies. Junior/senior company dancers are encouraged to attend numerous optional conventions and competitions throughout the season.
Just Dance! company members are not allowed to enroll in dance classes at any other studio or participate in dance events outside of school and Charleston Dance Center without permission from Just Dance! directors.
Senior company dancers participate in at least one competition dance each year. Most senior company members are invited to participate in multiple large group and small group dances in addition to duos/trios and solos. Parents are welcome to set limits on the number of dances their child participates in. This decision needs to be made in the summer, before choreography begins.
