Dance Connection is dedicated to developing the whole person with dance as a contributing aspect of the learning process. Our goal as educators is not only to train dancers, but also teach and practice discipline, honesty, trust, responsibility, commitment, dedication, team work, self-control, respect, and perseverance. All with a smile and joy! Dance is heartfelt, and we hope that each dancer’s love, passion, and desire to succeed in dance will help them achieve their goals in life. Dance Connection Company Dancers represent the most dedicated dancers at Dance Connection. Each dancer is expected to strive for their best in dance excellence, as well as become mentors and role models to other dancers at the studio.
Dance Connection Performing Company – Competitive (DCPC)
The Dance Connection Performing Company is a premier training ground for serious dancers between the ages of 7-18. The company requires jazz and ballet training requirements, and also includes contemporary, lyrical, tap, and hip hop dance styles. At the advanced level, these dancers are interested in pursuing dance in higher education and/or the professional industry. Selection is by audition only (held in the spring prior to the season).
DCPC dancers participate in a production routine including the entire company, and may be cast in other group routines as well as solo, duo, or trio routines. Our DCPC company attends local dance conventions and training workshops, and regional dance competitions. They attend a national competition every two years.
Dance Connection Dance Team (DCDT)
Our newest program, started in 2010 is our Dance Team which is a non-competitive group that focuses on performance and team building. It gives students the opportunity to work with professional choreographers, gain additional performance experience, and expand their knowledge of jazz dance in a noncompetitive environment. Dancers should have prior jazz dance training, and should love to dance. Registration is open online for both our Jazz Team and our Teen Team, and like our Ballet Company, and Performing Company, the dancers receive a scholarship rate on unlimited classes to help further their love of dance.
