Part-Time Pre-Competitive Program
Our part-time Pre-competitive program is perfect for dancers ages 5 and up who can’t commit to a full competitive schedule, younger dancers wanting to dip their toes into the world of competitive, or recreational dancers looking for more performance opportunities. Our goal is to inspire our dancers and promote self esteem within a positive dance environment. Students are expected to demonstrate a stronger sense of discipline in their competitive training, and commitment to their team.
