Rising Star Competition Team

Our “Rising Star” Competition was a great success in our inaugural year and we are happy to continue it in the 2016-17 season! Our “Rising Star” team is for dancers  in grades 3+ who would like the opportunity to compete without the intense requirements of our elite team! This team will compete in the novice/intermediate level at 2-3 competitions this season. We will have a jazz/musical theatre team and a tap team in each of the 3  levels. Dancer’s can choose to compete in either one or both genres.

This is a great opportunity and learning experience for the girls.  Team members build lasting bonds and learn a sense of commitment and working together.  Self-esteem reaches a new level as does their desire to learn.  My teachers and I are looking forward to working with you and truly hope you will enroll in the class. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask!!
