We have one team, divided in groups according to age, level, strengths, etc. Teachers make the decision of what genre your child is best at but we like to know what your favorite style is. There is opportunity to take solos/duets/trios however, it is not required. We attend four regional competitions, including one national competition (location yet to be decided). Our choreographers are university trained professionals with creative ideas for unique, entertaining performances. We were awarded Top Score at several regional competitions as well as VIP's National in 2021 and Stage One Nationals in Gatlinburg in 2019 along with several other outstanding achievement awards and scholarships. We are excited that you are considering an audition with our competition team. We have worked hard to bring together teachers and families that strive for excellence and still treat each other as family.
