We are confident that PRO DANCE ACADEMY is the perfect place for you to embrace your inner dancer and shine to the world!
Our Competition Team, the “ACADEMY”
Our Academy dancers compete and perform regionally in 3 competitions per year. We run our competition team differently than most studios. We know that families are very busy yet still want to provide the opportunity for their children to find passion in an extracurricular activity. We also know that most dancers do not go on to be professional dancers after high school. For this reason, we focus on self confidence, team building and being supportive of teammates, hard work and perseverance, humility and grace, while preparing them to take their skill and compete it on stage. You can say that our top 2 goals are developing character and dance skill, while our last focus is how many national titles they receive.
- does not have weekend rehearsals (unless it’s for solos/duos/trios)
- dances anywhere from 3-6 hours per week, depending on the level
- wears appropriate costumes
- does not perform inappropriate moves or dance to inappropriate music
- achieves top awards at every competition, with our most important award consistently earned, the “spirit” award for being the most supportive studio of the weekend
“I just want to say a big THANK YOU for everything y’all do for these kids. I noticed that our girls were truly having fun in a competitive and crazy environment. You all have instilled wonderful values in them. To do their best and have fun while doing it. Also, I want to add that it was saddening and embarrassing in a lot of cases to see the choice of costumes that were chosen for a majority of dancers. I am proud to be a part of a studio that pridefully and tastefully chooses the wonderful costumes for the kids. They were all beautiful, interesting and modest. Just goes to show that you don’t have to put children in revealing costumes to have a fantastic and winning performance. I am also very proud of all of our girls and boys for behaving in respectful and proper ways. And they had fun while doing it! A big hug to all of you for creating a loving and Christian filled environment.”-Kim
