Comprehensive Dance Training…
Our competitive programme is ideal for those wishing to gain MORE from their dance training.
Our award winning competitive dance team (May Dance - A-team dancers), will participate in 3 or 4 dance competitions in the dance season, attend workshops and perform at community events.
Our Competition/Recital season is held once every two years.
What to expect:
At May Dance we prepare our competitive dancers (A-team dancers) for a career in dance and the performing arts or as dance teachers. We offer:
Exposure - A-team dancers are encouraged to learn from different choreographers and to broaden their dance styles by attending workshops.
Opportunity - A-team dancers will be asked to attend suitable auditions.
Experience - Select A-team dancers will have the opportunity to work alongside Miss Helen and gain valuable teaching experience.
Inspiration - A-team dancers are encouraged to get familiar with the dance world! At May Dance we can connect you with inspiring dance professionals.
All A-Team Dancers are required to take Ballet and Jazz technique classes in their age group. Acro technique and Conditioning/Stretch class are also highly reccomended.
A-Team dancers are also required to take class in the style of dance they have been selected for and any styles they would like to be considered for.
A-Team Dancers will learn their competitive choreography OUTSIDE of their classes. Rehearsals to learn competitive choreography will be scheduled as an addition to regular class times*.
*Rehearsal times will usually fall on the weekends.
A-Team dancers are selected throughout the prior season based on their commitment, dedication and ability. It is expected that A-team dancers practise and stretch daily.
Auditions may be required for dancers new to May Dance or those new to the A-Team.
