Competition Dance Company – or simply “Company” – is designed for the student that demonstrates a vibrant and dedicated desire to study dance more intensively. In addition to elevating their artistry as a dancer, the student will be given the necessary tools to build greater strength and hone their technique, all while being energetically led to perform, compete and work together with others in a team environment.
All Company students will be challenged and encouraged to grow through a committed practice and performance schedule. In doing so, the student will increase in confidence, expand their range of learning, and improve in executing dynamically choreographed routines that showcase their passion and love for dance at a competitive level.

Transportation – please note – most Competitions will take us outside of our city. Examples include, but are not limited to, Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, etc.
Fees – entry fees for Competition typically range from $40 – 150 per student. There are (typically throughout the dance calendar year) prompt deadlines associated with collecting all Competition fees, placing Costume orders, purchasing Dance Wear items, etc. All deadlines and costs will be announced accordingly. If fees are not paid on time, items will not be ordered for the student. Once we have collected all on-time payments, we will inform you of the specific Competition date, time and location (as quickly as we are provided that information).
