Join a Company

Much of the work of the North County Dance and Performing Arts Foundation (NCDPAF) is centered on our Performing Companies – the Paso Robles Ballet Company and the Paso Robles Jazz Company. Each Company has various individual performing companies made up of dancer with similar skill and experience levels. Our Performing Companies are directed by experienced dance professionals. Their dancers train at our “home” studio, Class Act Dance and Performing Arts Studio, under the tutelage of outstanding professional dance instructors. Performance pieces are choreographed by well known choreographers from across the country.

In the past our Performing Companies had the opportunity to perform locally at such events as the Paso Robles Pioneer Day, Halloween in front of Paso Robles City Park, Symphony of the Vines at Allegretto Vineyard Resort, Paso ArtsFest, Kids Day in the Park, Vine Street and California Mid State fair.  They also participate in major regional programs that help to expose them to dancers and instructors from outside the local area, helping to expand their performing horizons.

All company dancers are auditioned each year for their placement for the following season.  Each dancer is required to sign a contract that binds them for the full season to ensure that all team members are dedicated and fully committed to the team as well as the studio.

Company Requirements:

  • Six years of age or older

  • Formal classical dance training

  • Strong current ballet and jazz dance technique

  • Ability to quickly learn new choreography and style

  • One year dance company commitment,

  • Attendance at rehearsals and classes at Class Act Dance Studio
