The Dance Academy

PERFORMING COMPANY

Mini  |  Encore  |  Elite

The Dance Academy offers a competitive performing company for children ages 3 through 18. We hold auditions to develop groups with dancers of similar age and ability. Our ultimate goal is to give as many dancers as possible the opportunity to perform while also providing a superior dance education. The Dance Academy believes that being involved in our competitive performing company develops positive self-esteem, confidence, accountability, and leadership in our dancers.  In our program, dancers have the opportunity to perform for large crowds and compete against many other teams from all over the United States. Our goal is not necessarily to take 1st place, but rather we encourage our dancers to do their best and improve from one competition to the next and most of all have fun. Time and time again, our philosophy has made our teams and dancers stand out above the rest.
