2016/17 Competition Teams
Here is your opportunity to join our competition groups. These groups are designed for the dancer that would like to add a new level to their dance experience. Listed is some information that you will need to know before making your commitment.
Competition dancers have an attendance policy of no more than 4 classes per season can be missed. We will have at least 2 Saturday practices per month, a competition preview, 3-5 weekend dance competitions and a National Competition. These will be discussed in detail at a parents meeting held yearly in September. There are extra fees such as shoes, costumes, competition fees, convention fees, and National preparation practice fees.
Each group will learn a tap and jazz dance. We also perform production dance which will include Saturday practices. Ballet/lyrical classes are used for competitions. Once groups and music are chosen, costuming will be determined and at that time costume fees will be announced.
- Costume fees are approximately $125.00 per costume
- Competition fees are approximately $50.00 per routine
- Solo/Duet/Trio and specialty small groups are by tryouts and will be held in late fall.
We require all potential competition dancers to attend a required dance intensive in August each year. This class will instruct you on the skills needed as well as place you in the appropriate group.
Our competition dancers have additional performance opportunities such as: Competing on the T.V. show “Dance Moms”, Performing at Disneyworld, Performances in the Park Dancing on a Cruise Ship, and other events!
