The Phipps Jr. Dance Company
The Phipps Junior Dance Company (PJDC) was created to give young dancers, in 5th to 8th grades, the opportunity to experience what it is like to be a part of a dance company. The company is performance-based, meaning they work toward performing in the spring Dance in Revue and Phipps Dance Company show. In addition, The PJDC has also been invited to perform at a variety of local community events in Hudson and the Twin Cities Metro Area, such as the Hudson Community Expo and for the Hudson Rotary Club. The dancers must audition each year to be a part of the PJDC. They rehearse two hours each week at The Phipps to learn and polish four routines. These routines are performed throughout the season, which runs from September to May. PJDC members perform in the styles of tap, jazz, hip hop, and lyrical or contemporary. Through rehearsals and performance opportunities, dancers are able to grow their skills by working on rigorous choreography and working with a guest choreographer. In addition to weekly rehearsals, PJDC members are required to take at least two technique classes at The Phipps. The company provides a positive, encouraging atmosphere for the dancers to work as a team. The PJDC does not compete in dance competitions, but has performed for adjudication at the INnovate Dance Event. The PJDC is directed by dance instructors Megan Bauer and Greta Lewis. They are both looking forward to a wonderful 2021-2022 season with 14 dancers in the company this year!
