LIVE DREAM DANCE COMPETITIVE COMPANY Our company is a group of serious, dedicated dancers who will take part in
competitions and extra performances throughout the year. It takes a lot
of dedication and hard work on both the part of the dancer and the parent in
order to be a part of our award winning company.
Dancers should have at least 3 years of continuous dance experience, excellent
attendance and attitude. They must show dedication and respect to
teachers, choreographers and other students at all times as they are a
representative of the studio.
Anyone who is interested in being a part of our Competitive Company for the 2013-2014 season will need to schedule a private lesson time to be assessed by the director. This class is not an audition, but rather a way for the new director to assess student interest and ability levels, and to determine if a student is ready for company. Live Dream Dance is still accepting dancers for our competitive team. Call now to book an appointment.
