Showcases & Competitions
We offer annual/semi-annual local showcases for our students and outside studios to join similar to a recital type event or competitive style event.
Competitions are promoted throughout the year across the nation for those who want to see how they compare to other dancers across the nation and be part of the national/world dance community.
Both Showcases and Competitions help students reach a specific goal in a limited amount of time! Nothing helps ones drive to improve quickly more than aiming for a short term goal such as these!
Why should you incorporate Private Lessons, Group Classes, & Dances into your learning repertoire? (3-Tier)
- Private Lessons are where you focus on your personal dancing techniques (PMCC), especially your lead/follow skills. Each lesson is customized to your style of learning, your physical attributes, your strenghts & weaknesses all with the undivided attention of your instructor. The finer points that make a great and confident dancer!
- Group Classes are where you add mostly patterns with the ability to practice your lead/follow skills with other dancers in the process. A social learning style with progress determined by the class plan and progress of the group as a whole.
- Practice Dances are designed for students of all levels to practice what they are learning in their private lessons & group classes with other students who are learning the same way to help reinforce all of the techniques they are collectivly working on in a live situation.
- Open Dances are the ultimate “test” for students to try out their lead/follow skills with dancers of all levels and training backgrounds. These dances often bring to light new challenges for leads and follows which they address on their next private lesson to overcome them.
