Dance Team Info

Welcome!

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 or Performance team here at Dance La Vie’!? Team involvement awards your child lessons of commitment and discipline, 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!  We focus on growth of character and teach the kids to work in a group setting, build self esteem, receive constructive feedback, 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 she’s having the time of her life and learning that hard work really does pay off!

Top 10 Skills Children Learn From The Arts:

Creativity, confidence, problem solving, perseverance, focus, non-verbal communication, receiving constructive feedback, collaboration, dedication, and accountability.

Perks:

*Discounted Travel

*Fun team activities such as swim parties, team dinners, etc.

How it works: Every year we alternate between “Competition” teams and “Performance” teams.  Competition years consist of intense training, preparation of competition routines, and a Spring season full of attending competitions and winning various awards such as: 1st place, high point, overall awards, judges choice, best choreography, top technique, etc.  Performance years are less intense but involve the same level of training without the demanding competitions.  Dancers have an opportunity to come up with their own choreography, travel over Fall Break and take dance classes in another state, refine their skill set, perform at holiday and other guest shows while also preparing for studio concerts.
