STARZ Competition Team

STARZ Competition Dancers


     These dancers are selected each year through auditions. Qualifications for the team include at least one year of experience as a dancer, ballet and jazz technique, and a recommendation based on class performance from an NDCA instructor. These dancers train weekly in their basic technique classes and rehearse their competition numbers as well. Competition dancers are able to experience performances for audiences from around the world. They receive critiques and advice from professional dancers/judges from across the country. They are also able to participate in master classes with these artistic professionals in the various styles of dance. It is a wonderful opportunity for the dedicated dancer!
