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 2017-2018 competition season is as follows:




Petites and Juniors:

Monday; 5:00-7:00pm

Thursday: 5:30-7:30pm


Teens and Seniors:

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!

















During our first four 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!


Our competition team is also going to Disney this year!  We are incredibly excited to have been invited to perform at the Walt Disney World Resort in July of 2017.  More information will be posted as it becomes available.



For the first time, our studio will have a Mini Competition Team for the 2017-2018 season!  This team will consist of a group of young dancers who perform one routine at each of our four regional competitions.  Dancers in this program will remain in their recreational class as well to continue to grow their foundational technique.  These dancers will also have a weekly rehearsal on Thursdays from 4:30-5:30pm during which they will learn and rehearse their competition routine!  The monthly tuition for our mini team will be $25.  We would love to have you as a part of our Inaugural Mini Team!



Registration for our 2017-2018 team is now open, and we'd love to have you as a part of our dance family!  For more information or to register, contact us.
