Company (Competitive Team)*

Students on our Competitive Team study all genres of dance in order to create well-rounded, technically advanced dancers.  Each week, students study all styles of dance, including Classical Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Modern, Contemporary, Lyrical, Tap, and Hip-Hop.  Students at the competitive level will study more hours per week than a recreational level class, and have the opportunity to work with and learn from all of our award-winning staff, and will attend multiple competitions and conventions during the spring.  Having this extra time in the classroom allows dancers to improve exponentially in their dance technique, as well as have loads of fun!

Placement in Company is by audition only, and is up to the discretion of our staff.
