Allegra Performing Companies
All Allegra performing companies commit to a full year of performing.   Performing company members experience what it is like to put a "show on the road" by actually performing in many types of shows such as benefit shows, mall shows and annual recitals; the experience of performing.   Being a member in one or more performing companies is a wonderful experience that develops poise, teamwork and dedication to excellence.   Allegra is proud to offer eleven Performing Companies.
