Competition Team

At Dansations, the competition program is about learning and growing together as dancers and individuals. Committing to the Competition Team may be a big step, but we believe it is one that will strengthen you as a dancer, a competitor and a person. In each class, we’ll strive for an environment that demands discipline, creativity, personal expression, and above all, fun!  Our Competition Team places emphasis on TEAM and therefore, we work together, learn together, laugh together, and grow up dancing together.

Placement on the Competition Team is by invitation only. Placement is based on the previous year’s behavior, attendance, work ethic and passion for dance. New students interested in joining please contact us to schedule a private audition.

Expectations for competition students:

  • Mandatory attendance and punctuality
  • Bring all dance shoes to all classes
  • Be dressed properly for each class- (leotard, tights, hair pulled back and out of face, bun for ballet)
  • Exhibit respect for your teachers and teammates
  • If you must miss a class call or email the studio prior to the class time
  • Strive to do your best each class
  • HAVE FUN!

 

Competitions

Attendance to competitions is mandatory. This is not like other sports where other teammates can play your position. Since every dancer is essential to the development of choreography and executing specific combinations, competing without a dancer puts our entire class at a major disadvantage. If a dancer is on the Competition Team, you are an important and key member of our team. This needs to be made a priority, out of respect for yourself and your team members.

All competitions are local. Competition dates and fees will be posted the first week of October.
