The Mission for our Competition Dance Teams is simple:  to provide opportunities for enrichment that go 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. . . it is about striving to be the best you can be, and sharing your passion to do so.

Competition teams are a wonderful experience, but one that also requires a lot of hard work and a serious commitment.  While the focus is on competitions, we will also work on new dance techniques, flexibility, team building and self-confidence.  By making the commitment to join a team, you are agreeing to uphold a high set of standards.

It is expected that the dancers are just as committed to their instructors and their teams, as their teachers and teams are to them.  Dancers are expected to keep a professional attitude and appearance in the dance room as well as at competitions and other performance events. Let us demonstrate our Faith and stand out above the crowd when we are together.

TEAM LEVELS

We at the King's Dancers treasure each of our students, and we would like to treat them as the gems that they are! So, we have named our competition teams to reflect these precious dancers. 

Many things are considered when placing a dancer on a competition team, including (but not limited to), age, skill level, maturity, and dedication.  Instructors have experience in the competition field.  Dancers and parents should feel confident that instructors have the dancer’s best interest at heart, and they have placed the dancer in the best possible team that will allow them to excel.

 

Ruby Team

These are our tiniest dancers.  These dancers must be at least 5 years of age.  Dancers on this team are new to the idea of competition, but ready for a challenge.  They are ready to learn new things, follow directions well, and most of all, ready to have fun!  Ruby dancers spend a minimum of two hours per week in the studio.

The following teams are available at the Ruby level.  Dancers may participate in one or more of the teams.

(1) Jazz/Lyrical Team

(2) Tap Team (will not compete this year, must also be enrolled in Jazz/Lyrical Team)
