Competitive Dance Team (Ages 5-18)

The competitive division is an opportunity for students wishing to pursue dance in a serious manner to explore various genres of dance. Our program not only provides top-quality dance instruction, but also creates an environment where students can develop self-esteem, self-discipline, self-confidence, the ability to work with others and the ability to follow directions. The Competitive Dance Team competes throughout Ontario and performs in our annual recital at year-end. The Competitive Dance Team is created from a selection of students chosen from auditions held throughout the summer.

Along with the prestige and highly accelerated learning that is part of being a member of our Competitive Dance Team, there are numerous responsibilities that both parents and dancers should consider:

  • Competitive students must have excellent attendance and punctuality
  • Competitive students must maintain a “B” average in school
  • Competitive students must participate in all competitions
  • Competitive students must be able to participate in community events
  • Competitive students must maintain a high degree of self-discipline and motivation as being a member of the Competitive Team is a privilege
