Dancers who wish to participate in local and state-wide competitions are encouraged to do so. Competition is not for every dancer, and is not required at Emotions Dance Studio. Dancers and parents should discuss this option in detail with their instructors and studio owner prior to committing.
Dancers who wish to compete may do solos, duets/trios and on some occasions, small group dances. Dancers must be at least 7 years old to participate in our Competition Track.
Dancers who wish to be enrolled in the Competition Program will be required to take in their appropriate levels:
There is also a monthly competition fee of $25 added to each dancers account. This fee covers the operation of the studio for rehearsals, travel to and from competition for instructors, plus one costume.
Families will also be financially responsible for choreography fees, competition and convention fees, additional costume fees, plus all required class tuition fees. Dancers who are behind on their class tuition will not be allowed to attend competition until their account has been paid.
Participation contracts will be discussed and signed for any dancer who wishes to participate in this program. Dancers are strongly encouraged and in some cases may be required to attend at least two weeks of Summer Intensive. Dancers may also need to attend placement classes to determine their level.
