Members of the Dance Creation Competitive Team may begin rehearsals early in September and conclude in June by performing their pieces in a DC end-of-year recital. All groups, solos, duets and trios are not guaranteed to perform in each recital. They are assigned to either the first or 2nd show.
DC Competitive team members are required to enroll in at least one DC regular class of the same style as to the group or groups they are participating in. (For example a dancer in Hip Hop Group must be enrolled in a Hip Hop class or another urban style.
There will be a 2-hour training/choreography class each week and all members are required to attend the training session. Specific time and day will be announced later on.
Dancers are carefully placed in their competition groups that are matching their technical abilities. The age of one dancer may differ from the age group of another. But we make a concerted effort to make sure dancers in groups with one another are going to be challenged equally.
