Junior Company (JCo)

The Polaris Junior Company (JCo) was established in 2011 as a pre-professional company for youth ages 13 – 18. The program is designed to offer young, talented dancers a chance to grow their skills and experience the demands of rehearsing and performing in a professional environment. This is a tuition-based training program, with limited scholarships available upon application and approval. Auditions are required, see below for details.

Performance opportunities for all JCo dancers include: Winter Student Performance (Dec), Groovin’ Greenhouse during the Fertile Ground Festival of the Arts (Jan), Spring Student Performance (May), JCo Performance (May), Galaxy Dance Festival (Aug), and other unique opportunities that present themselves during the year.
