Our Competitive Team
iDance offers a Competitive program for exceptional dancers that want to take dance at an elite level.
The team participates in 3-4 Regional dance competitions March to May, with an optional Finals in early July. We also take CDTA Jazz Exams and Cecchetti Ballet Exams in June.
To be on the Competitive Team, dancers must audition each year as groups & classes & schedules change annually. Students are chosen based on commitment, ability and attitude.
WHY JOIN THE iDANCE COMPETITIVE TEAM?
1) Competitive dance allows each dancer to challenge themselves in a group and individual setting.
2) It allows students to make dance their primary extra curricular activity and dance at a higher level.
3) Being part of the team also promotes confidence, commitment, dedication and co-operation.
COMPETITIVE TEAM REQUIREMENTS
Each member of the iDance Competitive team takes a Jazz & Ballet class as a minimum, other disciplines can be added on top of those 2 fundamental classes. This is very important in the development and technique of our dancers. We ask dancers to COMMIT to their weekly classes as good attendance is essential in any dancer's development.
Competitive dancers are strongly encouraged to participate in our summer classes & Intensive Camps which are designed to keep dancers in shape, to continue working on strengthening and learning new choreography throughout the summer months.
If our studio is forced to shut down again due to a pandemic, we will continue all Competitive classes online via Zoom at a reduced 30% off tuition rate, and pick back up in studio as soon as allowed.
