NCDA's Performance Company began in 2005.  Eighteen years later, our competitive Company Team is comprised of six groups with a grand total of approximately 70 dancers, ages 6-18:

  • Mini Company (by invitation)

  • Petite Company 

  • Apprentice Company

  • Junior Company

  • Senior Company

  • Elite Company

Additionally, we founded our Junior & Senior Ensemble Teams in 2021.  These are competitive teams that require fewer hours of training each week & compete twice throughout the season at the intermediate level.


Auditions for Company & Ensemble are held each Summer, choreography is taught in early Fall, & our competition season runs from November to May, culminating in our recital in downtown Stamford, & followed by participation in Nationals in early Summer. All Dancers must audition each year for placement in Company.


In recent years, our Company team has competed approximately 25 group dances & 50 solo/duet/trios, at three regional group competitions each Spring. We also attend several regional competitions with just our solo/duet/trio dances & Elite Company dances, & offer opportunities for dancers to attend additional workshops, both locally & out-of-state. Additionally, we compete at Nationals in early Summer, participate in community events, & have performed at Madison Square Garden on several occasions. 


We are proud to compete dances in the following disciplines:  Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Tap, Hip Hop, & Musical Theater. Our weekly schedule also requires students to train in Ballet & electives such as Improv, Acro, & Pointe.
