Iron Cross Dance Company!
Who are we?
Iron Cross Dance Company is a pre-professional dance company that exists for the purpose of furthering the dance experience of all of our dancers. All of our dancers are exposed to different styles of dance including ballet, pointe, jazz, contemporary, and hip-hop. They learn dances to compete in several competitions throughout the year. Dance is an athletic art that instills discipline and the value of hard work. At Iron Cross Dance we seek to instill the values of hard work, while at the same time always providing an environment of Positivity, Encouragement, and Love. We care about the dancer as a whole person and we want them to become the very best version of themselves possible!
How does our program work?
If you or your child is interested in being in our dance company they will come to a tryout in the spring to be considered for either our Company or our Pre-Company.
Pre-Company: This is for those who have potential but either don’t have the the skill level or are ready for the level of commitment that Company requires. They will not have to compete in our Pre-Company. They will have extra classes recommended for them to take throughout the year to get their skills up to par. They will also be required to come to at least one of the competition to show comradery and support to our Company and to give them an idea of what it will be like for them as they progress into our competitive program.
Company: If the dancer is chosen for Company they will be placed in levels based on their age and skill level. We have three companies:
Mini Company: for mostly 6 to 9 year olds and relativley new dancers. They will be required to dance 6-7 hours per week. They will also compete in 2 or 3 dances throughout the season and be showcased in the end of the year recital.
Junior II Company: for mostly 9 to 11 year old dancers that have a higher skill level. They will be required to dance 9 to 10 hours per week. They will compete in 3-4 dances throughout the season and be showcased in the recital. Those who qualify will be allowed to compete in solo if they desire.
Junior I Company: for mostly 11 to 14 year old dancers that are ready for pointe and have a higher technical level. They are required to dance 12 hours per week. These dancers will compete in 4 dances throughout the season and are eligible to compete in solo style of their choice. They will be showcased in the end of the year recital.
How do I qualify for solo?
To qualify for a solo, you have to have been in the company for at least one year or be in the junior I Company.

Around 8:30pm the kids will sit down and eat Pizza from Pepperoni’s! We order all pizza as cheese and will order Gluten Free upon special request for some of our kids with food allergies. General activities of a typical PNO include things such as Gymnastics, Tumbling, Trampolines, Open Gym, Games, Dancing, Prizes, Pizza, Snack and Slushies, Specific activities or contest directly related to the Theme; a movie after dinner, “always G or PG” We usually plan and release what movie we will be watching in advance through email and website.
