The Motivate Dance competition team is better known as a performance team. It is an opportunity for additional training and performances, and is available for all students ages 8 and up (or by invitation for those under 8). Along with furthering students' dance technique and stage presence, members of this dedicated team participate in team-building activities, develop positive attitudes, learn time-management, and display outstanding sportsmanship. This opportunity provides dancers with a second family, helps teach leadership skills, and establishes how to work as a team.
Motivate Dance competition team members are committed to their training. Dancers that are interested in joining will attend a placement class in June. This is where they will be assigned to competition numbers and placed in their class levels. They are also encouraged to attend one of our summer camps. These students are required to take Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, and Technique classes in their designated levels along with attending Monday or Tuesday night rehearsals. Hip Hop, Tap, Acro, and Pointe are highly recommended for competition team members, and if dancers are assigned to be in a Hip Hop, Tap, Acro, or Pointe competition routine, the class that correlates is also required. Dancers are required to participate in 2 group dances, and additional groups, solos, duets, and trios are available as well. The performance team will attend 3 competitions throughout the season and will perform both competition and class routines in Motivate Dance's annual recital.
