Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Competitive Troupe Team?
Sarah’s Dance Academy Competitive Troupe Team is a dance competition team that is developed for dancers who desire to perform more often and take their dance to the next level. Members of our Competitive Troupe Team will perform at 1 to 5 competitions, and at the annual Sarah’s Dance Academy Dance Recital. Travel Teams will compete out of town as well as local and Performance Teams will compete locally only. Teams will be learning technique skills for all styles of dance. Performance routines will be taught in Jazz, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Pom-Pon and/or Tap. Competitive Troupe Team dancers will have the opportunity to attend some professional dance workshops to expand their technique and style. All dance students may try out for the Competitive Troupe Team. You do not need to be a returning student of Sarah’s Dance Academy, or be invited to join.
When are Evaluation/Placements (Auditions) & how do I sign up?
Please contact the Studio to register for 2014-2015 Placement Auditions. If you have a friend that is interested in the Competitive Troupe Team, bring them along! You do not have to be a previous dancer at Sarah’s Dance Academy!
How often will we practice?
Competitive Troupe Teams will practice for 1-4 hours, 1-3 days per week, depending on the level of the troupe team. Students will learn 1 to 3 routines in Jazz, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Pom-Pon and/or Tap. The style of dance will depend on the troupe team. Any extra practices, if needed, will be held on Saturday mornings.
What are we looking for at Evaluation?
Dancers with positive attitudes, willingness to try new things, teamwork skills, motivation, and the want to grow and improve as dancers and as persons. Most importantly, you have to have the passion and love for dance!
What will I gain from being on the Performance Troupe Team?
Being a member of our Competitive Troupe Team teaches dancers teamwork, responsibility, self-motivation, and goal setting. The extra attention to technique and detail that goes along with competition preparation will advances the skills of the dancers much faster than the regular taking of dance classes. Dancers will build relationships and interacting skills as well as gain the encouragement to work at their highest level.
