Competition Teams

For interested students, Encore Dance Academy offers competitive dance teams. 
Typically, these teams are geared towards the more serious dancer. 

We have two options for competitive teams - classic and elite. The purpose of these teams is to increase the dancers' performance abilities, encourage growth and responsibility, promote teamwork, and have fun!

Our classic dance teams are for ages 7-18 and require less of a time commitment. These teams will have class once a week and attend 3-4 competitions within the state. Classic teams are required to attend an in-house workshop.

Our elite dance teams are for ages 10-18 and require a slightly higher level of commitment. These teams will have class once a week and also be required to take a ballet class and strength/conditioning class at least once a week. They will attend 5 to 6 competitions in the Midwest as well as Nationals. Elite teams are required to attend an in-house workshop as well as a dance convention typically held in the Chicago area.
