Our Competitive Teams are designed for dedicated dancers who want to get the most out of competitive dance. We have 3 different levels/ competitive programs available, as well as ensemble teams.


AUDITIONS: 

(there is a $5.00 fee to audition)

Dancers will be asked to fill out an audition form when they arrive. 

Dancers do not need to prepare anything for the auditions. Dancers will be guided through a warm up (testing strength and flexibility), as well across the floor exercises. Dancers will then be taught 2 dance combo’s (one Lyrical, one Hip-Hop) which they will perform in small groups for the panel.
