They were awarded overall high scores, best costume, best technique and choreography awards.
MORE THAN FOUNDATIONAL SKILLS
Team dancers gain more than just strong foundatonal skills. They learn responsibility and form lasting relationships. In our program, students are not defined by a trophy, but by the effort they put into their training, practice and performance. Our award winning staff recognizes that students need positive encouragement and support to accomplish this.
We strive for our dancers to have holistic training, preparing them for the future through local opportunities and periodic perfomances on a much larger scale. We have team members who have danced at Hammers’ Variety Theater in Branson, on performance cruises and even onstage at Disneyworld!
