Rise Company will be for those who have little to no experience with being in Company, and are on the younger side of the Company overall. These dancers will need to “Rise” above any trials they may be facing; whether dance related or not, as well as “Rise” above the dance level they are at to grow, excel and work on their technical level. Dancers in Rise Company are beginning to discover the artistry that comes along with dancing, and are starting to work towards that end goal. These dancers are challenging themselves every day to be their best, and achieve more as they grow and strive to bring glory to God in all aspects of their lives. These dancers are at the beginning of their spiritual journey as well and will grow in their relationship with God in their time here. This group will be eligible for competition. These dancers will all participate in Outreach projects that include the entire Rez Dance Studio Company.

Elevate Company will be for those dancers with more experience with being in Company, and have a higher technical level. These dancers are at the older end of the Company as well. These dancers have tackled the basics in technique and are looking to “Elevate” their dancing to a higher level, and bring more glory to God. Dancers in Elevate Company are adding the artistic level to their dancing, while maintaining the technique that has been achieved. These dancers are also striving to do their best every day and bring glory to God in all aspects of their lives. These dancers are in a deeper relationship with God, and their journey is more mature, but always with room to grow. This group will be eligible for competition, up to age 19. These dancers will all participate in Outreach projects that include the entire Rez Dance Studio Company.

Zia Company (pronounced zy-ya):

Zia Company will be for those who are adults, 19 years of age and older, or those who do not wish to compete, but want to still perform and wish to still dance for His glory in the Outreach part of the Studio and ministry. Zia means “light” and these dancers will be the light to the world that we need, and share that with others. These dancers can be from all levels, however can proficiently execute the audition requirements to be a part of the Company. These dancers can be at any point in their spiritual journey, and will use this as an outlet to grow their faith. These dancers are challenging themselves every day to be their best, and achieve more as they grow and to bring God glory in all aspects of their lives. This group is not eligible for competition due to age requirements for competing.
