Competition Team Information 2019-2020

Are you looking for:
More opportunities to perform on stage?
A more concentrated dance schedule, to improve your technique?
A way to bond with your fellow dancers?
The opportunity to work closely with CDA instructors to gain confidence, better stage presence, and a stronger dance technique?

Then our competition team is for you!

We have opportunities for dancers ages 6 and up in many different genres of dance. Our mini team is more of an introduction to the competition world. It’s less intense than our Intermediate/Advanced team, and is a great opportunity to gain extra performance time and bond as a team. Our first mini team this year had a wonderful experience! Our minis are not required to audition. Simply sign up at the front desk and let us know what genre of dance your dancer prefers. 

​Audition Choreography will be taught on the following dates from 8:15pm-9:00pm:
