Add-On Program for Dancers in 7th - 12th Grades

The Ballroom Competitive Program is an optional, add-on program for dancers in 7th – 12th grades who wish to compete in ballroom in the styles such as Cha Cha and East Coast Swing. Dancers intensify their performance study with additional experience on stage through a competition environment.

Participating dancers are grouped according to ability level with age consideration. As this program grows, we will be learning more styles in both American and International styles. Competition helps dancers with their technique as well as their performance skills. Interested dancers should register for auditions with a partner. If you need a partner, you may indicate this on your audition form and if one is available, you will be contacted.

A minimum of 8 dancers are required to create a Ballroom Competition Team.
