Junior Troupe Orientation is held the first Friday of each new Windfall School of Dance class session. Each student is required to take a least two technique classes per week. If needed, the Junior Troupe Director will assist students in selecting appropriate classes based on their abilities and experience. The fall semester kicks off the season with rehearsals for their spring performance, and the Troupe may also hold an informal studio concert for friends and family at the end of the fall semester. During the spring semester, the company will continue working on their pieces, to be shown at their annual Windfall Junior Troupe performance.

Junior members typically perform in at least one community outreach event per semester, such as area festivals, area nursing or retirement centers, or community venues.
