CONGRATULATIONS TO SDA COMPETITION STUDENTS SPRING 2021! What an incredible season of dance, our most AWARDED season ever! What a great time we had on some incredible stages!
Our Competition Company (C-Comp) is an additional performance opportunity for students wanting the excitement of learning exciting and FUN choreography, then performing in a competition setting for judges’ critiques. Dancers will compete 2-5 dances, based on level. C-Comp students must take a minimum of classes weekly to participate, plus their assigned competition classes and perform in SDA's Nutcracker. 2 regional competitions will be attended in 2022 and dancers will perform their C-Comp dances again at our annual spring shows for a total of 3-4 stage opportunities each season! Now open to PRIMARY FOR 2021-22, Secondary, Intermediate and Advanced dancers, admittance is with the director approval only. Dancers may be invited directly, or if they have NOT been asked directly, they must email to be admitted. Our C-Comp dancers become as strong as they are BECAUSE of the extra dancing/performing through this program, so don’t be afraid you’re not good enough to join C-Comp!
