Libra Dance Company 

The Libra Dance Company was established in August 2011. The Company is for our most Elite Dancers who are truly committed to making dance their number one priority. The company members are hand selected to represent Libra Dance Studio in our community. They perform at Regional and National Dance Competitions, Local Nursing Homes, 76ers games, community Parades, and much more. Our company consists of three levels; Mini (intermediate), Junior (intermediate/ advanced), and Senior (Advanced) Dancers. Company dancers are between the ages of 6 to 18 and train in multiple styles including; Ballet,  Hip Hop, Jazz, Lyrical, Tap, & Modern.

We hold yearly company auditions each May for the Fall Season. Dancers are required to dance September through June anywhere from 2.5 hours to 7.5 hours per week based on the level they are placed in. Company dancers are also required to dance 6 weeks during the summer months. Each season we award some dancers solos, duets, or trios based on the three "A's"; attitude, ability, and attendance. We always want to set our students up for success so we need to ensure our dancers are ready for the responsibility that these extra dances bring.

Over the past 8 years, Libra Dance Company has truly made their mark in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York area. We are so proud of the many accomplishments and honors that our company has been awarded! A few of the speciality awards we received this year were....

 

-Dance Expression's "Staging Award" for all Libra Dances, which acknowledged the formations, transitions, and overall execution of the choreography by the Libra dancers
