What is the RMR Youth Tap Ensemble?

RMRYTE is a youth tap dance preprofessional company designed for dancers who are interested in growing in their tap training, technique, and performance.

Who is it for?

This company is for intermediate/advanced dancers ages 12-18.

What are the requirements?

Weekly Friday class and rehearsals are required for ensemble members. Class is every Friday at 5:30pm followed by rehearsal from 6:30-8pm.

What is the cost?

The audition has a flat fee of $100. Upon acceptance, ensemble dues are $120 each month, which covers weekly class, rehearsal, performances, and a company t-shirt.

What is the season commitment?

The season runs from mid August 2012 through mid June 2022. Specific season dates will be announced ASAP.


What is the benefit?

Be a part of the first preprofessional tap dance company in Colorado! Ensemble members will get to train and perform with Rocky Mountain Rhythm and jumpstart their tap dance career. 

What is it NOT?

RMRYTE is NOT a replacement for weekly studio classes, nor is it a competitive team. It is a supplement meant to be taken in addition to whatever weekly studio classes are required at your home studio.

Will I get to perform?

Yes! All ensemble members are guaranteed two performances each season, one in December with the Rocky Mountain Rhythm company and their own showcase in the spring. Additional performances may be added and will be communicated clearly.

I can't come to all four audition dates, but I am interested in the ensemble. What should I do?

Reach out to us! You can email or call MOVE! at 303-238- 0848 to get more info on how you can still be considered.
