We offer a competitive dance team to those students that wish to pursue dance on a more serious level. Each season, students are chosen based on their basic technique skills, focus and commitment in the classroom, and eagerness to learn.
Our Goal.... is to further our education as performers by learning from judge's critiques, and to take our dance education to a higher level, but most importantly sharing team spirit and friendships to last a lifetime!
