COMPETITIVE DANCE TEAM INFORMATION:

 

WHAT IS COMPETITIVE DANCE TEAM?

  • LDC’s competition team competes with other dance studios in the Midwest during competition season

 

  • It’s for dancers that want to push themselves to a higher level of performance and compete against dancers from other studios and from other cities across the Midwest

REQUIREMENTS FOR COMPETITIVE DANCE TEAM-

  • Dancers must have danced at LDC for one year prior to joining the competition team

  • Dancer needs to participate in required classes in both summer session and and the fall/spring dance season

  • Dancers must have director’s approval (based on technical ability, commitment to dance, enthusiasm for dance, good attitude, attendance, etc.)

  • Dancers must be enrolled in ballet, jazz, lyrical and a competition technique/rehearsal class

  • Consistent class attendance is required, as dancers will constantly be working on technique and choreography in preparation for competition

COSTS FOR COMPETITIVE DANCE TEAM-

  • The competition technique class is an additional class hour

  • There will be a costume needed for each dance they compete in (we do our best to re-use for recital)

  • Competition Team tights, shoes and warm-up jackets will also need to be purchased

  • Competition entry fees (around $40 per dance, per competition for group dances).  Additional entry fees for solos, duos, small group routines apply to participating in extra dance routines

  • Choreography fees apply for additional dances a student competes in over and above group dances. (ie. Solos, Duos, Small Group dances)

AGE REQUIREMENTS FOR COMPETITIVE DANCE TEAM-

  • Dancers need to be at least 8 years old

HOW OFTEN ARE THERE COMPETITIONS?

  • Studio usually attends three competitions (February through May)

  • Competitions are usually held in Madison, Green Bay and Milwaukee

  • Competitions are usually a full weekend (Friday night through Sunday evening)

  • Studio also participates in one convention per year (usually in Chicago area).  Attendance at convention is OPTIONAL

ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW?

  • Competition team is a lot of fun, but it also a commitment.  Please consider your school schedule and other activities before you commit.  It is not fair to the other dancers or Miss Kate if you join, but then miss rehearsals and classes or quit during the season.

If you have any other questions…just ask or call  Miss Kate at 262-349-9698 !
