The Experienced

For students that have experience in tap, jazz and ballet and are able to give more time commitment to dance we offer two different competitive levels. Audition placement is required, as being a part of these programs is a privilege and dancers have greater expectations to follow.

Troupes & Lines

For dancers who are passionate yet wanting to keep their outside extracurricular activities we have six competition teams that attend two or three regional competitions a year. These kids are required to take extra technique classes and be present at all scheduled rehearsals.

Travel Teams

If your child is the more serious dancer (contemplating going to school for dance or possibly wanting a career in the field) we offer six national teams that compete at four regional competitions a year and one national competition. In addition to the extra technique classes, being a part of the Travel Teams takes a higher level of commitment and more hours of dedication.
