Offered to students 7-14 years of age (by March 1, 2024), our brand NEW performance program is a division of our competitive programming that is designed for dancers who have a desire to refine and develop their technical skills, while committing to a weekly training schedule that provides families flexibility.
Building a strong foundation and creating confident dancers, remains our focus. Students have the option of training anywhere from 1-5 hours per week, while still reaping the benefits of a competitive team environment. The performance team will prepare a routine that they will perform three times in the season; two local competitions in April/May, as well as the annual year end recital in June.
To qualify for the performance program, dancers are required to have a minimum of one year of completed training in the style they register for. To ensure a positive stage experience, additional weekly practice at home will be expected. To assist parents in supporting their dancer, access to a private classroom app with weekly updates directly from their child’s instructor is included.
Costs listed below are for dancers who have enrolled in one class only. If enrolling in more than one class, please contact us for multi-class pricing.
Monthly Lesson Fee: $78
Performance Fee: $315 (this fee includes your required team apparel, costume and competition fees and is processed on October 15)
Further details on our payment procedures can be found on our policies page.
