Students will compete in 1 - 4 dance competitions and perform in our annual year end production to showcase their passion and maximize their dance skill development. Lots of training and hard work is required to demonstrate the proper technique (excellent posture, arm & leg placement/extension) to become well rounded dancers. Students will also learn important skills such as dedication, creativity, and working together as a team.
