For students wishing to pursue dance at a more intensive level, we offer competitive programs
that combine exciting performance opportunities with intensive dance training.
Our competitive teams compete in various dance disciplines and range in age from 6yrs old to 18yrs old.
Aspiring competitive dancers must have previous dance experience and pass an audition before being accepted onto the team. Our teams compete both locally and nationally/internationally each year. It is a very rewarding and positive experience to be a part of the competitive dance team.
Pre-Junior, Junior, Intermediate, and Senior. Placement into these levels depends on age and ability and is at the discretion of the directors.
The competitive team will attend 3-5 competitions in the spring (local & out of town) Outside of regular classes, there will be other mandatory events like summer intensive, ballet exams and conventions
Each level has a predetermined program of classes that a student must take. These classes run on weekday evenings. Choreography and rehearsal of competitive routines is done outside of class time, mostly on weekends.
need wings to fly
The perfect stepping stone for many dancers who want to explore the world of competitive dance and challenge themselves even more in their dance training but without the commitment of the full-time program.
The routines they learn in these classes will be performed at local area competitions only (no out of town travel) as well as at recital, giving the dancers more performance opportunities over the year
Dancers in the part-time program will have a set number of classes depending on what disciplines they are interested in (maximum 5 classes- Ballet, Jazz, Acro, Tap & Hip Hop). These classes will be scheduled throughout the week.
Being a part of any competitive team means a commitment and dedication from both parents and students beyond that of the recreational level. It is understood that students will make competitive dance at POG their primary extracurricular activity.
Dancers interested in our competitive programs must attend an audition and be accepted into either the full-time or
contact the office with further questions or to schedule an audition
To dance is to be out of yourself...
Larger, more beautiful, more powerful
