Elite Dance Academy is a nationally ranked and award winning competitive company. Dancers attend a minimum of five regional competitions and one national competition, rotating in-state, out-of-state yearly. Auditions are held during the summer and rehearsals begin prior to the start of the school year. Any dancers who participate on the competitive company are required to train year round.
The Competitive Company currently consists of the following companies:
Prep Company is designed for dancers looking to enter the competitive arena that have minimal experience. The program helps prepare them to take on the intensity of our company. Dancers typically compete one piece during competition season, although depending on the dancers, they may compete in up to 3.
Apprentice Company consists of dancers who have some experience in competing or dancing. They take a minimum of 3 hours of training per week, plus additional rehearsals. Dancers on Apprentice Company will compete between 3 to 5 group dances during competition. These dances range in style from jazz, tap, modern, lyrical, hip hop, contemporary, and musical theater.
Company consists of experienced dancers who excel in many forms of dance. They take a minimum of 8 hours of training per week, plus additional technique classes and rehearsals. Dancers on Company will compete between 3 to 8 group dances during competition. These dances range in style from jazz, tap, modern, lyrical, hip hop, contemporary, and musical theater.
All level placements are chosen after the audition and are based on technical ability, work ethic, performance quality, and attitude. The Elite Competitive Company is a year long commitment from both the parents and the student and every dancer placed on team must commit to every competition including nationals. Every team member is required to take the appropriate technique classes chosen for him or her at their audition. In addition to training and competing, the competitive company participates in fundraisers, master classes and fun team building events!
