What is Movement Dance Companies?
MDC’s are groups of dedicated Move Dance and Fitness’ dancers who rehearse, perform/compete, and have community together. Move Dance Companies, compete/perform in jazz, contemporary, tap, musical theatre, hip-hop and open categories. There are four companies: Movers (Novice competitive dancers), Move (Intermediate level competitive dancers), Movement (dancers ready to compete at a high level), and the performance company (dancers wanting more performance opportunities). The Companies are chosen by a panel of judges who group the dancers based on technique, potential, and stage presence (taking age into consideration). The director has the opportunity to move a dancer at the end of summer prior to choreography camp if they feel the dancer has improved to a point they need to be moved.
