Allegro competition dancers participate in two different competition circuits: Competitive Artistic Dance and Competitive Cheer and Cheer Dance. The Mission of all Allegro Dance Arts Competition Teams is for the individual dancer to develop their skills in: team work, discipline, confidence, integrity, talent, and artistry. By giving 100% and working positively in a group, a dancer learns dedication, cooperation, and respect for others and her/himself; practices for future success in life.
The Competition team is for a dancer who:
1. Dreams of doing more with dance
2. Can commit the time, energy and heart
3. Works hard to achieve goals
4. Loves to dance
A competition dancer rehearses with a choreographer one to two hours per week. For every hour in rehearsal, dancers are expected to work 3-5 hours outside of rehearsal. Rehearsals may start as early as summer and run throughout the year. She/he will perform in three competitions in March, April, and May and may be asked to dance in area pageants and special events.
To qualify to join a team, a dancer must be four years old, study in the style they wish to compete, dance exclusively at Allegro, audition, and complete a competition agreement and questionnaire.
