For our competitive program, dancers learn a routine that complies with the rules of each competition. The dancers perform their number once at each competition – our studio typically competes in four competitions each year. The judges are usually professional dancers who provide valuable feedback to the studio in audio or video form. Awards are given out at each competition to congratulate the dancers on their hard work.
Competition classes are taken in addition to a dancer’s regular schedule. All competitive dancers are required to take ballet, as well as the corresponding discipline to their competition number. For example, if a dancer is asked to participate in an acro solo, they must also take an acro class. All competitive students must take a jazz class.
Competition fees can be broken up into 9 monthly payments. The fees include competition classes, entry fees, and costumes.
Entrance into our competitive program is by invitation or audition only. Dancers are chosen based on their technical ability, flexibility, willingness to learn and be given direction, work ethic, and attitude.
Benefits of healthy competition:
- development of confidence in a student’s dance ability
- team work
- self-esteem building
