Our dancers have competed at Candance, View Dance Challenge, Take the Stage, Millennium Dance Festival and many more. They have won many overall awards, first places, high scores and other special awards commending their hard work. You can't always win, but there is always something to learn!
This rigorous program demands hard work and commitment to fantastic attendance. It will build a strong foundation for dancers that wish to pursue a career as a dancer, teacher or choreographer but also builds strong values like work ethic, determination, perseverance, self-confidence and humility. Dancers develop a strong mind, body and important life skills.
Competitive dancers train 3 to 15 hours per week. There are several different teams that focus on different dance styles, have varying levels of commitment and attend 2-4 dance competitions per year. We are also developing an academic program and a travelling troupe.
Thanks so much Marie Lavergne for ALL your teaching , love, and support . You are a very important part of my daughter’s lives and a large part of who they are is because of what you are teaching them ( and it’s not only dance moves ).
Dance makes me feel free, it makes me feel unique. I know when I'm dancing on stage I'm doing something special that not everyone can do. I feel so confident in myself.
- dancer, age 12
I love showing my talent on stage and showing people how much I love to dance. It has taught me so much and I feel like nothing can stop me from doing what I love!
- dancer, age 9
I love being a competitive dancer because I love the challenge of competing against other dancers that train the way we do. I love the feeling of being a part of a team and cheering for my teammates when they are on the stage!
