Competition Team Program

Benefits          Time commitment          training

A program for the more serious dancer that focuses on building strong technique, learning team camaraderie, and improving performance skills!

The Dance Arts Centre competitive team program consists of 12 performing teams, ages pre-k through high school, ranging from intermediate to advanced dancers. 

If a dancer missed auditions, we do offer the option to have a private audition/evaluation. Please contact the front desk if this applies. 

 
 

Benefits of a competitive team

Healthy body & mind

Dancers will improve their physical health and gain energy through exercise and movement. Dancers will improve their minds through positive encouragement and accomplishments. 

Age Appropriate Music & Costumes

We are committed to providing dancers with age-appropriate music, choreography and costumes. Our instructors take this into consideration when planning for the year.


Self-confidence

This is something all parents want for their kids. Through learning skills and accomplishing goals throughout the year, dancers will have a sense of pride and confidence, along with the ability to perform!

Building friendships

Dance friends are the best friends. The dancers will grow together and build team camaraderie. 

Technique & Dance Education

Our instructors are committed to building a strong foundation focused on technique. Not only will dancers learn dance skills and technique, but also professionalism and grace that will carry them through their dance journey!
