Along with a full dance education, many students at The Dance Academy are offered the opportunity to participate in competition teams, allowing them to attend some of the finest and most challenging dance competitions in the country. While our school has always achieved high scores in local, regional and national competitions, these competitions take a back seat to our classes, the backbone of a fine dance education.
Competition teams include lines for tap, jazz, lyrical, and ballet and students attend approximately four competitions each year. Participation and costume fees apply. For additional information please send us an email.
Stifling an urge to dance is bad for your health – it rusts your spirit and your hips.
