Performance Opportunities for Student Members
The formal name of the “troupe” is the Desert Rose Dance Company. “Troupe” is used as an internal,
casual way of having a common language within the studio.
Some events are determined to be Desert Rose Dance Company
events only. For paid events, only dancers in the Desert Rose Dance Company will be compensated. Desert Rose Dance Company
active dancers have the first selection of dances with DRDC dancers in alumni status retaining the second choice of dances.
For those events that are not designated as such, the following information applies.
All Desert Rose students
with an annual membership are on the list of potential performers. When a performance opportunity becomes available, the Date/Location/Dance
Program/Rehearsal Schedule will be posted in as much advance as possible. Please note, sometimes there is very little notice.
Student Members who wish to dance must be able to say yes to all three of the following:
Be available for the event
Be able to demonstrate the dance chosen, by yourself, in advance of rehearsals
Be available for the rehearsal schedule
Student Members who wish to participate, but
cannot due to lack of readiness to demonstrate the dance as a solo, can schedule private lessons at the rate of $45 an hour.
The instructors for private lessons will be Samra, Feyrouz, or a Desert Rose Dance Company dancer selected by Samra.
