Reif Dance Company
The Reif Dance Company was established in 1994 and is made up of our most dedicated dancers who audition to be a part of The Company each fall. Company class and rehearsals are on Saturdays. Original work is created on the company members throughout the year. Ballet, Modern, Jazz, and repertoire from both Reif Dance Company and James Sewell Ballet make this a unique learning experience.
As part of our relationship with James Sewell Ballet, company members travel to Minneapolis several times a year to attend Master Classes, see performances, and in some instances perform with the ballet company. These trips provide another opportunity for our students to broaden their perspective as young artists, and as individuals. Members of the The Company serve as representatives of Reif Dance program, providing motivation and incentive for all developing young artists.
The company has its own performances each year which include: The Company Show, The Nutcracker, collaborative events with James Sewell, Spring Show, and occasionally regional-touring performances for special events.
Reif Dance Junior Company
The Reif Dance Jr. Company creates a performing opportunity for our younger students. Auditions for the Jr. Company are held in the Fall. Dancers selected will attend Company classes on Saturdays beginning in January and perform original choreography during the Company Show. Taking class and performing with The Company offers the junior dancers the opportunity of experiencing the challenges of company class, while building relationships with the more experienced dancers.
