A few things to think about;
Is your dancer tired of starting over each year with beginners? Combo Classes are a great starting point, however, after repeating these for a few years, your dancer might get bored or tired of starting over each year with beginners. Keep in mind, these are OPEN classes and anyone can enroll. We do suggest different classes for different dancers but a lot of the time, what works for schedules might not coincide with the levels of each dancer.
Does your dancer want a little more structure? We take our dancers to the next level in our Company Teams with organized classes in Jazz, Ballet, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Acro-Tumbling and Contemporary.
Starting at the age of 4.5 dancers can join our Company Teams, dancing one time per week for 1.5hours. They get to perform at our Winter and Spring Concerts, go to one competition and participate in our ballet production.
Just like in sports, competition in dance serves as a tool to motivate dancers to want to progress. Competitions are also about comradery, having fun, making memories, being rewarded for hard work and stepping outside of our comfort zone.
Competitive dancers learn skills like team work and unity, goal setting, how to win and loose gracefully and why it is important, discipline and consistency, confidence that helps in all aspects of life, good sportsmanship, being dependable and committed and how to be a good friend. Dance friends are friends for life!
When we invest in our children it helps them to feel worthwhile. They want to continually improve because WE believe in them. An investment made financially, will be well worth it in the long run, because our children will be successful in life.
At The Dance Academy in Lehi, Utah we get asked several times each year about our Company Teams. We have many different Company Teams and Open Dance Classes for children of all ages at our studio near you.
Whether you choose to have your dancer participate in our TDA Company Teams or our Open Classes we are committed to giving our very best to every student.
