Elite Team (Competition Team)
Elite Team is for advanced dancers ages 16 and older that would like to continue dancing at the competitive level, but do not have the time necessary to compete with Extreme Team. Dancers must have a quadruple pirouette, aerial, flat splits in all directions, and be executing foutte turns. Elite Team requires dedication, positivity, good sportsmanship, and commitment from each team member.
Elite Team dancers are required to take 1 hour of Summer Dance classes on either Tuesdays from 12-1pm. Dancers are required to make it to at least 4 of the six weeks of summer dance. If a dancer has to miss more than 2 weeks of summer dance, she will be placed on a plan to catch up with the rest of her team with additional dance hours required. Please register for summer dance immediately following receiving your placement letter.
Elite Team Dancers will have the opportunity to perform in multiple parades throughout the summer.
