The Mission for our Competition Dance Teams is Simple:

to provide opportunities for enrichment that go well beyond the art of dancing. We strive to inspire, challenge and provide character-building experiences through dance and performance.  “Competition” is not just about winning-winning is the least important thing. It is about striving to be the best you can be, and about sharing your passion to do so.

 

Competition team is a wonderful experience, but one that also requires a lot of hard work and a serious commitment. All 4 competitions are Mandatory. This September – June season only three unexcused absences are allowed to remain on the team. Excused absences include: Special mandatory school events, death in family, sickness.  Please be prepared to commit to the schedule and all other requirements.


Practice Requirements and Rules:
You must be a minimum of 6 years old to audition. All teams except for Mini team are required to do all 4 competitions, and yearly recital. Mini team will be required to do 3 competitions and the yearly recital. With the main focus on competitions, we will also focus on new dance techniques, flexibility, team building and self-confidence. Before trying out for the team, please read the following and be prepared for a total commitment. Summer training is mandatory to be a part of all teams.
