Dancers must be at least age 5 to join our clogging, jazz, and hip hop performance team, age 8 to join the acrobatics and tap teams, and at least age 10 to join our modern team.
No, you only have to audition if you would like to participate in the acrobatics or modern teams.
Yes, you must take a technique class to participate in our competition teams. A technique class would include ballet, jazz, modern, contemporary, and more. (Hip Hop can be used as a technique class for clogging teams ONLY). Ask if you are unsure whether a class would be considered a technique class.
All routines will be completed during regular class times. Some extra practices will be scheduled as we get closer to competitions in order to practice production routines as a group. These are mandatory for all performance team members.
Besides your regular monthly tuition, there will be competition fees that will be due in February to be able to participate in competitions. Fees will be released as we get closer to competitions
We attend 2 competitions a year. The first competition is for our Teen and Senior Teams and the second competition is for all teams. If you participate in a clogging team you will also attend the North Eastern Clogging Convention in March. All competitions are in the New England region.
A decision will need to be made before summer classes begin. We will be starting all our material during the summer session and will need to know who will be participating in the teams.
