Inspiring and empowering the next generation of artists

Great Lakes Dance Company (GLDCo) is our pre-professional competitive program for dancers who are looking for more performance opportunities, accelerated curriculum and a more challenging level of training. Dancers perform professional-level choreography at several competitions throughout the dance season.

GLDCo is widely recognized for our Regionally and Nationally award-winning training, choreography and dancers. We are proud to offer a comprehensive program focused not only on technical excellence, but on self-expression, artistry and empowering youth through movement.

Dancers are accepted into GLDCo via auditions in August. We encourage interested dancers to participate in our apprentice program to gain the training and experience to be well-prepared for auditions each year. For more information about GLDCo, please email us at

Placement in GLDCo is based on age and ability. Age ranges are guidelines for general placement, not restrictions. GLDCo members get performance opportunities in ballet, contemporary, jazz, hip-hop, musical theater, modern, tap and improvisation.
