DS Dancers on Edge

Dance South prides itself on the members of its Dance Company. DS Dancers on Edge is a select group of dancers who train between 4-9 hours a week and always walk away from a competition knowing they left it all on the stage!

•  Appearance for Audition
•  Overall Impression

Based on the dancers’ scores, members of the Mini, Razzles, and Dazzles Dance Companies are selected. A dance company handbook and parent/student code of ethics is explained and expected to be signed prior to joining the company.
