Mentoring and Training Program
Ashleyliane Dance Company is preparing for the fourth season of our successful educational program, led by ADC Artistic Director, Ashley L. Tate! Young dancers are invited to participate a weekly program designed for young artists who are interested in dance as a profession or want to take their study of the art form to a new level.
Session 1 of the 2020-2021 began on Tuesday, September 8th, but we can enroll students at any time. UNBOUND students must be between 12-18 years of age.
We have four educational tracks available:
Track 1: You will receive classes in jazz, ballet, contemporary, modern, hip hop, improvisation class, jazz funk, and a mentoring session with the artistic director, which includes a study of dance history, composition and the business of dance. We are also adding an hour of audio/video laboratory where students are learning more about music and video editing! Meets weekly on Tuesdays (6:00-8:15 pm), Wednesdays (5:30-7:30 pm), and Saturdays (11:30 am-5:30 pm).
Track 2: All of the above without ballet and modern class (Wednesdays and Saturdays only)
Track 3: All of the above without jazz funk and audio/video laboratory (Tuesdays and Saturdays only)
Track 4: All of the above without ballet, modern, jazz funk or audio/video laboratory (Saturdays only)
Students receive about 6-11 hours of training a week for an economical tuition! These students also receive discounts for all ADC guest classes and workshops. There are also performance opportunities available! This past season our UNBOUND students was invited to perform in our ADC Professional Company's spring concert and holiday showcase and hosted their own virtual showcase, featuring our soloists, group choreography, and pieces created by the students through our dance composition and improvisation training.
On a first come-first serve basis, dancers can choose to participate in ADC UNBOUND completely virtual, completely in-person, or in a mixed-delivery format. Please keep in mind that Wednesday evenings will need to be completely virtual from now until December 31st.
NOTE: Ashleyliane Dance Company has a new COVID-19 mitigation policy in place in order to protect all dancers to the best of our ability. We ask that all interested dancers and parents read BEFORE registering.
The tuition cost for Track 1 is $250 per month, Tracks 2 and 3 are $200 per month, and Track 4 is $150 per month. There are no classes during our winter break (December 20 - January 3, 2020) or spring break (March 14-21, 2021).
