The Performance Team is made up of elite dancers who demonstrate years of experience, outstanding levels of passion and an openness to learn and grow and challenge themselves. Being a company member gives the individual the opportunity to train alongside committed and elite dancers in a safe working environment where skills will be expanded.
The opportunities that are open to company members are exclusive to only our company members and are extensive. They must attend all of our trainings, master classes, performance events and keep up regular dance classes to fulfil the requirements of the company standards. Company members will be expected to demonstrate the highest level of commitment and a “can-do attitude” as they will be representatives and leaders in our community. This is a group of elite dancers who are invited to join the team upon successful audition. These students travel to perform and compete in multiple events across Australia each year. These dancers are a tight knit group of focused and highly skilled dancers who train at least 3 classes per week, and train with the Infinity Performance Team for 3.5 hours on Tuesday evenings. The Infinity Performance Team dancers work consistently with industry professionals in their workshop times, and are required to participate in all of these workshops throughout the year. In 2018 Infinity Performance Team are offered more performance opportunities than evr before. This will include: 2 performance productions- modelling the DREAM DANCE COMPANY'S style and structure. All members will have competition opportunities by means of Solos, Duos and Trios as well as their usual Infinity performance group competition items. We will also be studying audition training and having a formal graduation to celebrate the year. In Term One the team will be specifically focused on creating competition routines. In Term Two they will be working with some of the DREAM DANCE COMPANY members to create our production. The focus of the team will be on confidence building, performance skills, technique and stage presence, while instilling such traits as work ethic, focus, positive attitude and camaraderie. We have locked in the 2018 competition timetable to include the following: - Dancelife Unite: MAY - Mildura Eisteddfod: JUNE - Get the Beat Competition MAY - Evolution Dance Competition: AUGUST - Now Talent: JULY - The Australian Dance Festival: SEPTEMBER SYDNEY Guest choreographers will be taking classes and create choreography for competitions and our productions. This will include Katie Sanchez and DREAM DANCE COMPANY.
What do the infinity dancers need to do to keep their position in the team? Dancers must participate in at least three dance classes outside of the Tuesday night trainings- one of these classes must be a classical ballet class. These classes can be taken at either Mitcham Dance or Gravity Dance. Team members must also demonstrate high levels of professionalism, self-leadership, dedication, commitment, team spirit and growth. There is an expectation that in their everyday classes they are a demonstration of excellence for the other students. Infinity members are expected to be a part of the fundraising for extra costs needed for travel. It is important for these dancers to participate in all workshops held by EmpowerDANCE.
Included in the yearly investment, the Infinity Performance Team receive the following (plus much more along the way)
Tuesday night training from 4.30pm-8.00pm at Gravity Dance.
Unlimited classes at Mitcham Dance and Gravity Dance (it is compulsory for company members to attend a minimum of 3 additional classes per week to retain their position in the company.)
Multiple Master classes with national/international choreographers (these master classes are conducted outside the company hours).
