COMPETITION TEAM INFO
Do you already know that you want to give your dancer this opportunity? Then scroll down to our “So how do you get involved?” section!
Are you interested in giving your dancer the opportunity to be on an award-winning Competition team here at Dance La Vie’!?
Team involvement awards your child lessons of commitment and discipline, service and community opportunities, increased skill set with specialized classes, and a close-knit team of friends making a year’s worth of fun memories! Excelling in dance opens so many doors for the future such as scholarship awards to pay for dance or school, high school dance team opportunities, and even collegiate dance team opportunities!
Even if your dancer doesn’t touch dance again, she will leave our teams a better person having had the experience of a lifetime and a career opportunity teaching/coaching/judging dance! We focus on growth of character and teach the kids to work in a group setting, build self-esteem, receive constructive feedback gracefully, and excel in responsibility- all top traits desired by employers and school teachers alike.
We strive to give our dancers the heightened dance experience while also making sure to keep it affordable and not too time consuming! Give your child something positive to commit to and fill her time while having the time of her life and learning that hard work really does pay off!
