Join our Performance Team for the 2021-22 season!
Our Performance Teams offer an opportunity for the dancer who is looking for more! Our teams inspire and challenge the dancers to a different level than recreational dance without the competitive aspect. This is a non-competitive, but team driven and goal oriented program open to every dancer with at least one year of dance experience. If you are interested in joining one of our Performance Teams or have questions about the program, contact the Performance Team Director below based on the studio location you would like to attend.
Our Performance program is a weekly commitment of 1 – 2x per week (for 1.5 – 2 hours) with additional community performances throughout the season. Every Performance Team dancer is required to take ONE recreational class (of any style) in addition to their Performance Team class. There are multiple teams within the Performance Team program that are split up by age:
Edina Studio Location:
- Minis: ages 5 – 6
- Petites: ages 7 – 8
- Juniors: ages 9 – 10
- Teens: ages 10+
Wayzata Studio Location:
- Petites: ages 5 – 7
- Juniors: ages 8 – 10
- Teens: ages 11+
To help prepare our dancers for auditions in August, we offer additional training opportunities throughout the summer at both studio locations.
Edina Studio: Performance Team Summer Dance Training
Wayzata Studio: Performance Team Summer Dance Training
We have performed at Gopher basketball games, Timberwolves games, Mall of America, the Edina Invitational, Edina Tree Lighting Ceremony and more! The final performance schedule will be determined at a later date. Because our performances are an important part of our teams’ experience, we will ensure this opportunity continues this season, which may include studio created performances, outdoor venue performances and more.
All dancers interested in becoming a part of the Performance Team program are required to attend auditions. After the auditions, we determine our teams by first separating them by age and then by level. Teams are based on age and skills. We also consider work ethic, attitude and teamwork. Our ultimate goal is to place dancers where they will succeed most that season.
Below are the audition dates at both studio locations. A make-up audition date is also offered, email our Performance Team Directors at your preferred location to inquire (PT Director email addresses are listed at the top of this page).
