Dancers on the team are also required to maintain their technical training outside of the weekly team rehearsals. Dancers will be required to take a minimum of two dance classes of their choice each month at ACA Dance Centre.

How much are the dancers paid?

With our team being a studio based non-profit organization, dancers are not considered employees and are not paid for their involvement on the team.

 

However, through the dancers membership on the dance team we are offered occasional paid engagements where we may be able to compensate our dancers that are selected to be a part of those performances. Paid engagement proceeds are strictly regulated through the non-profit organization bylaws and guidelines.

How many dancers are you looking for?

Ideally we would like a team of 8-10 dancers but that could increase or decrease based on the talent presented the day of auditions. Just bring your "A" game and claim your spot!

Are tattoos/piercings allowed?

Dancers with tattoos will get the same consideration as dancers without tattoos. If selected for the team it should be the dancer's understanding that if a sponsor requests dancers with no tattoos or piercings we must follow those expectations. Dancers with piercings and tattoos will be asked to remove them or have them covered for official promo/marketing shoots.
