Dancers are selected for Team Dance Dept. through an audition process each spring. We have teams for dancers in Kindergarten - 12th grade. Upon selection dancers are grouped into smaller teams, according to age and ability. Dancers will take weekly classes, perform, and compete with their age/ability appropriate Team.

Customer service and organization are top priorities for our staff.  We provide all dancers auditioning for team a detailed list of the financial and time commitments required for participation.
