Our Competitive program offers an enriched dance curriculum specifically designed for dancers whom we feel have the potential to be competitive-level performers. These Company classes are accessible by audition only.

Competitive dancers involved in our regular competitive stream are required to train in the following mandatory disciplines:

  • Jazz and Tap
  • Lyrical/ Contemporary
  • Stretch and Strengthen
  • Ballet
  • Hip Hop

Dancers may also be selected by the Faculty to participate in additional classes such as Small Groups, Duet/Trios and Solos.

Our Competitive program not only provides top-quality dance instruction, but also creates an environment where students can develop self-esteem, self-discipline, self-confidence, the ability to work with others, as well as the ability to follow directions. Our Competitive team consists of high-achieving and hard-working dancers.

Along with the prestige and highly accelerated learning that is part of being a member of our Competitive team, there are numerous responsibilities that both parents and dancers should consider:

  • Company dancers must have excellent attendance and punctuality
  • Company dancers must maintain a “B” average in school
  • Company dancers must participate in all regional competitions
  • Company dancers must be eligible to participate in community events and charitable benefits
  • Company dancers must maintain a high degree of self-discipline and motivation
