Performing is an extremely valuable experience for all students. The Dance Connection offers opportunities for students to perform other than in the annual recital performance. Selected groups will be performing at fairs, schools, other community activities including Redsox, Celtics and Globetrotters games. Selected performing companies will have a chance to compete in state wide and Nationals competitions.

Attendance is a must in order for students to develop a strong character through self-confidence and awareness of themselves physically and mentally. Maintaining good attendance creates a performer with a greater sense of responsibility and a better appreciation and respect for the arts.
Most Companies will perform in 3 different competitions March through May. Every other year, Company students will participate in a Nationals Dance Competition. Solos, duos and trios are offered to Company students who excel in their level of dance.
Company students are required to participate in all parades and outside performances such as Globetrotters, Celtics and/or Redsox Performances.
All Company students must purchase the following for outside performances: Dance Connection Company royal blue jacket, sweat shirt, t-shirt, black yoga pants and black sneakers. These Company jackets and t-shirts can be ordered through the DC website company store.
