THE DANCE INDUSTRY DRILL COMPANY

Drill Company is for dancers that aspire to be on a competitive dance/drill team. The Drill Company enables dancers to advance their dance skills and technique in a nurturing environment, while developing team skills, fostering a positive self image, and promoting a passion for dance. Company members excel in precision dance forms of jazz, pom, kick, lyrical, contemporary, modern, novelty, and hip hop.
