2020/21 COMPETITIVE TEAM PLACEMENT

If you are a new dancer interested in auditioning for our team, please call us at 403-744-4141 or email info@elementsdance.ca to book an assessment. New dancers interested in the competitive team must attend our summer intensive August 17-21.

Mission

Our mission within our competitive program is to offer our students the opportunity to pursue excellence in their craft. We strive to balance fun and enjoyment with a commitment to hard work and progression, where each child can reach their full potential.

Participation

Participation in the competitive program is by audition only. Dancers have the opportunity to participate in group pieces, and solo/duet/trios are offered to dancers who show dedication and consistent work ethic in all their classes. The competitive team will participate at 4 competitions per year (3 in the Airdrie/Calgary area and 1 out of town, within Alberta).

Group routines are choreographed in “choreography classes” which are built into our weekly class schedule. Rehearsals for solos/duets/trios/small groups will take place from late October- early March. Competitions will run between late March and early May and may be during school hours. Solo/duet/trio/small group choreography fees, all entry fees and costume fees are not included in your regular tuition. A mandatory parent meeting will be held for all 2019/20 team families in September (date and time TBA).
