Dancewave Companies

Dancewave was founded on the belief that performance is the fastest route to achievement, which is why we offer pre-professional dance company training. The Dancewave Company experience is an immersive, pre-professional modern training program for young dancers. Our young dancers gain the opportunity to grow through an increasingly challenging program that incorporates modern and ballet technique classes, rehearsals with renowned choreographers, and a wide variety of exciting performing opportunities. This training provides young artists in the making with artistically substantial learning experiences while guiding their needs for individual achievement and team work building in an atmosphere of respect and open communication.

Membership in Dancewave Companies is by audition only. Placement auditions are held semi-annually. Scholarships are available. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE EMAIL
