To be an EDGE Competition Dancer you must attend Try-outs. These classes are held each summer at the studio, and the teams are announced online shortly after try-outs. Those who show enthusiasm for what they do, comprehension of basic dance skills, a willingness to learn, teachability, and work ethic will be chosen for our teams. Team dancers are expected to be in class every week & weekend practices are sometimes called through out the year. We attend 4-5 Events each season and team members are required to attend all of them. As an Edge competition dancer you will work extremely hard, become a part of a supportive & loving dance family, and have a TON of fun!!
In addition to their competition rehearsal classes,
Competition Company Dancers are required to take:
(1) Ballet class,
(1) TLC (Turns, Leaps, Conditioning) & Technique Class
Hip Hop and/or Clogging ONLY dancers are not required to take ballet or TLC.
These classes will not perform in the Spring Recital, but all ballet classes will perform in the Winter Showcase.
In addition to monthly tuition, Competition Company Students are responsible for paying their competition entry fees & purchasing a Competition Company warmup jacket & pants. Exact Costs are outlined in our try-out form.
These extra fees are broken up into monthly payments
**We hold 3-5 optional Fundraisers per season to help offset the added cost.**
