What is Competition Dance Team?
This team is divided by ages and skill levels. Each member will be assigned routines that are appropriate for their age skill and commitment level. We only except those qualified in age appropriate levels to be on our competition dance team. They compete for three weekends out of the season and if they qualify for Nationals are required to attend a weekend away at the destination of the directors choice.
