Competition team dancers, these master classes are required classes for all competition team members (except mini company), to make it easier for our dance families, we have opened registration for all master classes throughout the season. We encourage you to go ahead and register for these classes through May so that you don’t have to remember to register for them monthly. The $25 fee for these classes are non-refundable as we are charged for the classes not per dancer that attends. If for any reason your dancer can not make one of the classes, you may make up class(es) on the regular schedule, but will still be charged the $25 monthly. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Company Fundraiser: Our annual Kiwanis walk is October 21st. This is a very profitable and easy fundraising event for our Competition Team. Simply collect pledges and walk the mall for about an hour. 70% of funds raised by any group goes back to that group, the other 25% helps Kiwanis charities. The best part is any size cash donation may cost you nothing, if you write it off as a Tax Credit for the Working Poor. Just like the school tax credit, this credit reduces your actual state taxes 100%. A donation of up to $800 per couple, or $400 for singles, qualifies. Donation envelopes are available at the front desk.
Competition Schedule: Our 2017-18 Competition Schedule has been released and is available to download on the Our Company page of our website. The schedule includes all competition and convention fees and due dates throughout the season.
Choreography Calendar: A calendar with all choreography dates and fees are now available. You can download a copy of the calendar by clicking the button below. Please note that all choreography dates are mandatory for all dancers in those dances. Please make sure that you mark all appropriate dates on your calendar.
