We will perform at 2 regional competitions, and other community events throughout the year. We only attend adjudicated competitions (everyone receives an award based on points.) Having teams with limited practice hours and limited competitions help dramatically reduce stress and fees for parents and students. We will also have the opportunity to attend master classes and conventions. Taking classes from Master Instructors gives the students an opportunity to learn in a different, fast-paced environment; and to learn new styles of teaching. Competition fees, costume fees, and uniform fees will apply, if you have questions about these, please let us know.
** 30% OFF Tuition for Multiple Class Discount applies per hour long class, If you are on multiple teams and/or take other classes, see details.
You can choose to compete a solo, duet, trio, or join a Competition Dance Team! Solos, Duets, and Trios offer individual instructor attention and custom choreography.

A note from Anna: Promoting Healthy Competition is very important to me. I, myself competed in an adult group for many years, as well as my young daughter. Healthy Competition to me means that the students feel they are growing and learning in an embracing environment where they feel like they can be themselves and strive to do their best! It also means that dance students live a balanced life with time for school, family, and other activities as well. Thank you for considering Dance–N–Magic!
