Competitive Dance Programs
Competitive dance is a rewarding experience for young dancers. It encourages students to achieve their full potential and contributes to developing skills and attitudes that will benefit them throughout their lives.
FULL TIME COMPANY
This program is a comprehensive advanced-training curriculum that requires a high level of commitment and dedication from the dancer and family. It is designed to develop well-rounded dance artists and provides a platform for those who wish to pursue a career in dance and or the performing arts. Dancers train 8 – 12 hours per week of regular classes plus additional rehearsals. All classes and rehearsals are mandatory. Dancers study a variety of disciplines including ballet, pointe, jazz, contemporary, improvisation, jumps and turns, acro, tap, and hip hop. The company travels to 3 – 4 competitions per season and enjoys performance opportunities outside the school.
PART TIME COMPANY
This program offers dancers an opportunity to train at a more advanced level and experience what it’s like to be part of a team without the demanding schedule of the full time program. Dancers and families are required to fully commit to the training schedule and expectations of the part time company.
The program consists of 8-14 classes per week, plus extra rehearsals when required. All classes and rehearsals are mandatory. Students train in a variety of disciplines with a focus on ballet, jazz, contemporary/lyrical and acro. The company travels to 1–2 competitions per season.
• Acceptance into the full time and part time competitive program is by invitation or audition only.
• Ballet is a prerequisite to our full time and part time competitive companies.
