Carey on Dancing
2023-2024 Competition Team Information
We are so excited to offer the opportunity for our dancers to participate on the competition team next season. Competition students receive additional training in all styles and technique classes throughout the year. Therefore, students need to be committed to attending weekly classes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays each week in addition to attending monthly choreography classes one Saturday per month.
Our competition teams attend three Regional Competitions in NC or SC from March until May. All competition students perform in the production number and can choose to compete in Jazz, Tap and Lyrical. Students will continue to receive instruction in all styles throughout the year even if they do not compete a particular style. Detailed information will be given to parents on the first day of placement camp, so families can decide how many dances your child would like to compete for the season.
Competition is open to all students who are at least 5 years of age and have at least two years of prior dance experience regardless of studio. Students younger than 5 are eligible to audition by invitation only. All students interested in joining our competition team must participate in our SUMMER Placement Camp. One week includes a ballet and acro intensive along with nightly focus classes on stretch, leaps, turns, flexibility, and strength. AND one week includes learning combinations in all styles of dance. Students are observed throughout the two weeks to assess their ability to learn choreography and progress in technique classes.
At the end of the placement camp, students are placed on teams and dances based on their performance and growth during camp, and along with number of dances parents have chosen for their child.
All competition dancers are welcome to compete a solo, duet or trio for additional entry, choreography, and costume fees.
Placement Camp: Cost: $180.00
