This class works on flexibility, technique and showmanship while covering all the skills they will need for the exact squad for which they are auditioning.
Dazzlers Competition Team
Our audition date will be announced once classes begin in the fall if they would like to participate in this traveling team. This enables new students transferring to our studio to be eligible. Students must take a minimum of two classes a week in addition to their company class. The most important style of dance to build a great foundation is ballet, but they are welcome to try tap, jazz, cheerdanz and acrobatics. Students will audition in proper dance attire for our staff. They will be scored on their current technique as well as the potential the staff sees for growth in a dancer through a competitive and more disciplined class.
This time may be spent working on technique or learning something for a pageant, talent show or contest. Contact the office for available times.
