Competitive Teams

Competition teams will be created according to age, ability, and class size.

 

Competition classes will run just like recreational dance classes.  Cost is still $35/month.  Class time will most likely be longer than a regular class.  There will be additional costumes; however, I will do my best to make sure they are as economical as possible. (I do not believe in spending hundreds of dollars on a piece of clothing they will wear a handful of times.)  Also, each competition has its own set of competition fees.

 

We will try to compete in 5 dance competitions this season.  See the upcoming event tab on the main page to check the tenative schedule.
