Competition Dance Team

"Unity is strength...when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved." - Mattie J.T. Stepanek

Join Our Team

Welcome to our Competition Team page! Our team is a group of dedicated, hardworking dancers. Students 2nd grade and older may join the team unless teacher gives permission. Every student on the team needs to take a ballet or technique class, along with a clog class if you are on a clog team. Classes are arranged so that participation in these classes should be manageable. Students are welcome to take class in Mt. Ayr as well. The idea is for each student to gain more "floor time". Classes are required. If you had to miss - please make arrangements to make it up. If you know ahead of time, please video the class. Our dress code is to ensure all dancers are comfortable and focusing on dance, rather than their clothing. If you want to be a dancer, feel like a dancer, then dress like a dancer. Be proud of who you are and what you are doing! Respect the art.

Wear leotards, booty shorts, bra tops, leggings, capris, and tank tops.
