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 commitment, sportsmanship, conflict resolution and time management skills.

Competitive dancers will participate in four competitions between the months of March and May and will perform in the Annual Competitive Showcase and Year End Recital. With mandatory attendance in our 6 week summer class, and competitive summer intensive. 

Requirements: Min. of 3 years pre-competitive or competitive dance experience. Competitive dancers train anywhere from 7-10 hours per week, and in the mandatory styles: Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Stretch & Strengthen, and Lyrical. Optional classes: Acro, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop.

Part-Time Competitive Program

Our part-time 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.

Dancers will attend a competitive audition class to determine team placement prior to the beginning of the season.
