Dance Teams

Dixon Dance Academy offers thirteen competition-level classes that focus on the joys and the compromises of being a part of a team. Teams are Large Groups (minimum of 9 dancers) that will compete in at least one Spring Regional and one Summer National Competition. Team dancers are required to take at least one additional weekly Technique class. A Company is a Small Group (maximum of 7 dancers) that will compete in four or more Regional Competitions and one more National Competition. Company dancers are required to be placed on a Large Group Dance Team, thus need to take at least one additional weekly technique class.

Students must audition to be placed on a team. See Auditions Page for more details.

Thank you to all who auditioned. We had a great turn out this season.
