Our Story

Our audition in company was founded in 2002 as a triple threat performing arts group. Ranging from ages 8-18, Curtain Up! members are required to sing, act, and be proficient in ballet and jazz. We promote that they excel in school and participate in local community events, while valuing family, each other, and themselves. They know the meaning of hard work and discipline, dedicating themselves to something that promotes respect, integrity, creativity, time management, and physical and mental health.

Curtain Up! Company members get to perform multiple times throughout the year, partake in dance conventions, help instruct classes, and become leaders of the studio. Being a member of the company is a commitment (at least 4 hours/week), but is extremely beneficial no matter what path life takes you down.

  • All auditionees must submit an application and head shot to Lindsey@mismogymnastics.com by August 19th. Applications can be found HERE.
  • Please arrive at the audition in a leotard and tights, with hair pulled back in a bun.

For the 2020-2021 season, Company members will take a conditioning class from 6-7pm on Mondays, followed by choreography rehearsal from 7-8pm on Mondays. They will have another choreography rehearsal on Wednesdays from 7-8pm. These three hours are mandatory. They are also required to take at least 1 technique class of their choosing (Ballet, Jazz, or Contemporary). We also highly recommend that they take Progressing Ballet Technique on Fridays from 4-5pm.
