This is a brief outline of the time and financial commitment to be a member of the RISE Company. For more information please email us at


RISE Dance Co. believes that being involved in competitive dance develops positive self esteem, confidence, accountability, and leadership in young dancers. In our program, dancers have the opportunity to compete regionally and nationally. We will always maintain a high standard of age appropriate routines and uniforms for our dancers. Our goal is not necessarily to take 1st place, but rather we encourage our dancers to do their very best and improve from one competition to the next, and most of all have fun. We believe our philosophy has really made our competitive dancers excel both in the competitive environment, as well as in every class and performance at RISE.

  • We are looking for dancers who are motivated and enthusiastic about excelling, not only as competitive dancers, but in every class and performance at RISE. Our company dancers train weekly in ballet, jazz, lyrical/contemporary, hip hop & tap, and attend numerous competitions and conventions throughout the year.  

  • As a company member at RISE, you will be expected to show commitment, dedication, passion, an eager and positive attitude, talent and the desire to perform, all while embodying our 4 main principles: Respect, Integrity, Strength, & Excellence.

  • Please make sure your dancer understands the commitment required to be a company dancer. We want to stress the importance of following through. We are looking for dancers that are not only talented but focused, driven and excited to be a part of our award winning team.
