Elite Dance Project has an incredibly successful competition team! Joining a competition team is a great step in a dancer's journey! Elite Dance Project holds annual auditions for dancers who are ready to take this step. As a team, we travel to three required competitions throughout the winter and spring, as well as one nationals in the summer. For our dancers who wish to take competition more seriously, we offer the option for them to attend 5-6 additional optional regional and national competitions! We believe that competition dance is an amazing and positive experience and we want to make it a possibility for all families! Therefore, we offer three programs for students to choose from. Introduction to competition is our least demanding competition program. This program requires that students attend one ballet class per week. In addition, they learn and perform in our production routine. Secondly, our part-time competition program requires students to attend ballet and one additional class of choice weekly. These students will participate in several group routines. Lastly, our full-time competition students take each class offered for their age/level weekly. They compete in group routines and also have the opportunity to audition for solos, duets and/or trios. Our studio is home to several titleholders, and we have received countless first overalls and special awards at competitions all around the country. We have achieved major accomplishments at both the regional and national level such as earning the third overall highest scoring routine of the entire competition and being recognized for our outstanding costuming, choreography and technique. Some of our specific accomplishments include winning two GRAND national championships at Energy's Midwest Nationals in 2021, one of our students being one of three dancers at 2021 Nationals earning a $1,000 scholarship to the Summer in Studio Commercial Dance Program in Los Angeles, our 2021 senior lyrical group dance remaining UNDEFEATED the entire season (consisting of 6 competitions) and eventually going on to win first place and an overall technique award at Nationals, and that same routine earning both a golden ticket at Revolution regionals and a People's Choice Nomination at EnerGy Regionals which put our studio in the running to compete at the prestigious Industry Dance Awards.
