Our Companies are the ‘heart of EAS’ and our ‘equipping/commissioning’ (discipleship) Division. Through Companies we prepare students technically (thru technique classes in their particular art form), spiritually (thru weekly devotions/Bible study that encourage relationship with God and an identity grounded in Christ),  and relationally (thru weekly rehearsals that encourage teamwork) to use their gifts to serve the body of Christ and the local community.

ALL companies have a year long commitment beginning in August and ending the following year in June. Companies will have multiple performance opportunities including semester end shows and community opportunities as they arise.  Company payment plans are available as paid in full at the time of registration or a payment plan of 10 payments. First payment is due at registration and then each following month by the 5th of the month, with the final payment due the 5th of May.  Company members will not keep their company costumes as they will be rotated and reused in order to keep costs down. Please keep in mind that all ages are a suggested guideline and will depend on the performer’s ability and maturity level!
