Dance Discovery Company

The Company at Dance Discovery is the most senior dance team under the Petrichor Dance Connection umbrella. It offers pre-professional training and performance opportunities in Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, and Modern. Dancers who are a part of this team will receive training from hand-selected expert instructors holding University Degrees in Dance.

The Company reminds its members that dancing is a gratifying endeavor that infuses life with purpose and joy. Dancers that continue their study through college and beyond can find satisfaction in a career of performing with a dance company, teaching, or working in the theatre. Dancers who pursue an entirely different career will benefit from the practice of critical thinking and the collaborative work process that is developed within the company. These skills will serve to elevate students to greatness in any path of life they choose to follow.

We are looking for dancers who have the drive and commitment to further their unique craft. This team aims to help dancers recognize their true potential and assist them in developing their own personal goals by providing them with the tools and support it takes to achieve them.
