TEAM AUDITIONS FOR 2023-2024:
Our elite company is designed with serious dance students in mind and we consider every dancer an athlete. Our program is a balanced study between recreational (performance opportunities) and competitive. It also has collegiate programs in mind for future study in dance. MDC believes in balance of fun, family, school and being a kid, which we don't ask more than 3 nights in the studio a week for team classes. Our Musical Theater (MT) competition team is designed for the dancer that wants to compete without a heavy committment. MT team meets once a week and do 1-2 routines in the musical theater/jazz genre.

Mosaic Dance Company is a professional working company that specializes in individual attention and growth. We are the only studio with a professional costume designer in studio daily, coaches with resumes that include Broadway and working circuit judges. The company travels as a professional unit with team gear, trainers, seamstresses, professional judges and athletic trainers. Your dancer will be in the best hands! As quoted by Energy Dance Competition, "Mosaic Dance Center is a sophisticated studio that brings artistry, precision, and beauty through the athlete to the stage. It is always a pleasure to see MDC on stage."
When you arrive at the studio, be dressed in proper dance attire: All black with black leotard, or black dance shirts/jazz pants with black bra top. Bring ballet shoes or jazz shoes (some sort of turning shoe). NO jeans or sweatshirts. This will be a closed audition; no one can sit in and watch (this is so the students are not distracted). Membership on a Mosaic Team is by audition only. Membership on a team does not guarantee membership on a team the following year. Dancers must be properly dressed at the auditions with hair pulled back.
