"When I joined CityStep as a freshman, I had never set foot in a dance class before--and now I'm an Executive Director! I still wouldn't call myself a dancer, but CityStep has given me meaningful mentoring relationships, an important set of practical skills, crucial opportunities for personal growth, and, perhaps most importantly, an unforgettable family."
Welcome to the updated information page for CityStep Comp 2013! Check out what CitySteppers have to say about why you should join CityStep:
First come find us at the Activities Fair at the SOCH on Friday, September 6th at 4 PM!
We will also be holding an info session on Sunday, September 8th at 2 PM in Sever 203.
What is comping?
Like many groups on campus, CityStep yields new membes each year through a comp process. Comping an organization gives you the chance to get to know the organization while we get to know you. Comp will go through several different rounds, and will be different depending on which part of the company you'd like to apply to.
CityStep is made up of three boards: the Teacher Company, the Producer Board, and the Music Board.
Teachers, in teams of 5 or 6, work with a class of middle school students for the entire year.
Producers run the business side of CityStep, managing and planning almost every detail of CityStep's major events.
Music coordinators, in addition to debuting original work every year at the CityStep Show, are an integral part of every teaching team, planning and teaching music workshops that illustrate the interactivity of dance and music.
Our comp process is completely open, so please bring your friends! However, because we run a limited number of classes, we might not be able to offer a position in our company to everyone who comps. You are, of course, welcome to apply to more than one board.
Interested in becoming a TEACHER? Check the comp schedule below! You'll get to see what a CityStep class is like, try out a few dance moves (no pressure!), have a conversation with our leadership, and meet the returning members of the company. We do not make "cuts" between rounds, so everyone who attends both rounds of comp and completes an interview will be considered for a spot in our company! If you have any questions, please send us an email at email@example.com.
