Joining a competition team provides a great opportunity for students to work together as a group toward a common goal, while providing more performance opportunities.  Through local competitions, they will be introduced to dancers and choreographers from around the region, meet new friends who share their love and passion for dance, and be amazed by the commitment and quality of dance in the area.  Judges’ feedback from the competitions offers students a constructive way to improve their dancing, while building their self esteem. 

 

Expectations of Team Members:

 

  1. Commitment and attendance.
  2. Participation.  You will need to participate in the Christmas Parade and 4th of July Parade, as well as attend up to 3 local competitions.
  3. Teamwork and good sportsmanship.
  4. Hardwork and effort.
  5. JSD Attire: You will need to purchase a JSD Warm-up suit ($110) to wear at parades and competitions.
  6. Included with your monthly tuition is access to our Sunday evening technique class.  Attendance is not required, but is strongly encouraged.

 

Other Info:

 

  1. Local competitions are usually held weekends in April and May.  We usually attend 3 competitions per season.
  2. Competitions charge an entrance fee per student, per dance.  Group fees average $40 per student.  Solos average $100 and duo / trios average $90 (split between the students).  Most of our competition teams perform two group dances at each competition. 
  3. Anyone on the team wishing to do a solo will need to schedule private lessons.  The cost to prepare a solo is $200 / and takes approximately 8-10 lessons.  You may select your own music and costume, with an okay from us.
  4. As we get close to competition season, we may schedule a few weekend and school vacation rehearsals.
  5. Costumes.  We will try to use costumes that most of the students already have, but some may have to purchase a costume.  We will also use “homemade” costumes.
  6. Fundraising.  Dance teams can be an expensive endeavor; so many teams fund raise to defray the cost of costumes, entrance fees, warm-up suits, etc.
