Tahoe Dance School Competition Team

Tahoe Dance Competition Team

Tahoe Dance School Competition Company

Tahoe Dance Competition Team members travel around Northern Nevada and California competing in jazz, hip hop, tap, lyrical jazz, contemporary and acro dance. The members consider dance to be their most important extracurricular activity. The number of members each year varies between ten and twenty five participants whose ages range from nine to eighteen years of age.

Dancers and parents must be dedicated, as competing with the team is a large commitment. In addition to team training, regular classes through Tahoe Dance School are a requirement. Dancers perform at four competitions; typically, one in February, March, April and May, as well as being featured in Tahoe Dance School’s spring performance.

All team members perform with the Large Group or Production routine both of which encompasses different dance genres and a wide range of ages. Team spirit is a must! There is also the opportunity to perform in small groups, solos, duos and trios, all of which is decided at auditions.

Auditions are held immediately after the Spring Show and rehearsals begin with Team Week dance camp late August. With the extra dedication these dancers give, and the additional performance opportunities they receive, their confidence and skill level improves, and they develop great friendships with their fellow teammates. Although Competition Team is a serious dedication, dancers and teachers focus on having fun and expressing their love of dance.
