Mini Competition Team

We are so excited to once again offer a mini competition team for the 2018-2019 season!  This team consists of a group of young dancers who perform one routine at each of our four regional competitions.  In addition to their mini competition team routine, these dancers will also perform additional routines in our End of Year Revue..  The weekly schedule for our mini team is as follows:





We have so much fun with our mini team as we introduce these dancers to the competition world!  Want to be a part of our upcoming mini team?  Be sure to contact us for more information!

SDA Competition Team

Storytellers Dance Academy

At SDA, we aim to not only create a place where dancers can grow, but to also maintain a positive environment where each dancer feels like a part of our SDA family!  In addition to learning new steps and strengthening our technique, we place a large emphasis upon teamwork and the value of working together.  This not only strengthens each individual dancer, but also strengthens our competition team as a whole!

Our award-winning team takes classes in the styles of Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Contemporary/Lyrical, and Hip Hop.  We work hard to challenge our dancers during our weekly technique classes, while also making sure we have a whole lot of fun in the process.  Our goal is to always push our dancers with exciting new dances to help them grow not only in their technique, but also in their performance skills.  To see many of our performances throughout our seasons, be sure to check out our YouTube channel!

Our weekly competition schedule for the 2018-2019 competition season is as follows:

Petites and Juniors:

Tuesday; 5:15-7:15pm

Thursday: 5:30-7:30pm


Monday: 5:30-8:00pm

Wednesday: 6:00-8;30pm


Monday: 6:00-8:30pm

Wednesday: 6:00-8:30pm

We also have group choreography and rehearsals on Saturdays throughout the season.  Our competitions typically begin in early March, though that is subject to change from year to year.  Each season, we attend four regional competitions, and one national competition.  Our competition dancers also perform in our End of Year Revue each June.

We aim to help our dancers excel while always maintaining an exciting, positive, and safe environment.  While growth in our dancers is a priority, we also believe having fun is just as important.  We hold many events throughout the year for our team to bond together outside of dance classes, such as movie nights and pool parties.  It is important for us to feel as close of a bond as possible with our team, and we love getting to spend time with each and every dancer!  Our team also has performed at many events around Charlotte, such as at the Charlotte Eagles halftime show and on Good Day Charlotte!  In July of 2017, our team performed at Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort!

During our first five seasons, our team received numerous first-place awards and other achievements.  We have received Studio Spirit awards at various competitions, recognizing not only the amazing dancing of our team, but also the sportsmanship displayed by our dancers and families.  To see more of our achievements through the years, be sure to check out our social media pages!
