Full-Time Competitive Program
Our full-time Competitive Program is audition based and is designed to truly challenge and inspire those serious about dance. At Whitby Dance Company, the focus is to educate our students in all areas of the performing arts in a positive yet disciplined environment that instills commitment, creativity, confidence and work ethic. We aim to develop and train students at a high caliber of technique & performance with the intent to foster the athlete and artist within each individual. We believe competitive students will build life-long friendships and learn the importance of cooperation, sportsmanship, conflict resolution and time management skills.
Full-time competitive students will participate in four competitions between the months of March and May and will perform in the Annual Competitive Showcase and Year End Recital.
Requirements: Our full-time competitive dancers train anywhere from 5-7 hours per week, and in mandatory styles such as Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Stretch & Strengthen, Lyrical, Contemporary, and Acro. Optional classes: Musical Theatre, Hip Hop.
Part-Time Competitive Program
New for the 2020/2021 season is the part-time competitive program at WDC. This invitation only 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.
The part-time competitive team will participate in four competitions between the months of March and May and will perform in the Annual Competitive Showcase and Year End Recital.
Requirements: Our part-time competitive dancers train anywhere from 3-4 hours per week. Dancers must be enrolled in 3 weekly classes of their choice, and all competitive choreography will be done outside of the class time.
