Competition Programs

Competition Program

General Information 

The competition program is a great way for students to advance their technique and experience in an intensive atmosphere.  The dancers in the competition program are given the tools to self motivate, gain confidence, and experience a safe competitive environment. They are taught to be a part of a team and work together to achieve their goals! 

 

Each competition line is decided by an audition held at the beginning of the season. Following the audition you will receive information on class schedule and fees. Below you will find all information regarding Competition Fees and Tuition! If a student is interested in participating in a small group, trio/duo, and or a solo they will be able to fill out an application at the audition as well!
