*NEW! First Steps Mini Competition Program* $115 / month

We are so excited to introduce our brand new First Steps Mini Competition Program! This program is designed for dancers ages 5-8 who may be new to the competition scene, or new to dance in general, but are committed to being part of a competition program. Minis will take ballet and acro class each Monday. In addition, they will learn several group dance routines. Rehearsals for these group dances will take place either on Mondays or Fridays. In the winter, they will compete these group dances at two local regional competitions. Along the way, our staff and older teammates will mentor these minis and help them learn the ropes of what it means to be a competitive dancer. They will be introduced to all aspects of competitive dance, without the experience being too overwhelming. This program is designed to be a wonderful FUN learning experience for young dancers who are eager to be onstage! 

Part Time Competition $150 / month

Our part time competition students are required to take ballet, acro, and one additional class of choice each week. In addition, they will learn several group routines each Friday and compete these group routines in the Winter at three local competition events, as well as in the Summer at one Nationals event in Ohio.

Full Time Competition $225 / month

Our full time competition students are required to take all classes available in their age group each week. In addition, they will have the opportunity to audition for solos, duets, and trios in addition to group routines. They will rehearse their routines each week, and compete at three local competition events in the Winter. They will also compete at one Summer Nationals event in Ohio.

Our studio is home to several regional titleholders. We have received countless first overalls and special awards at competitions across the country. We have achieved major accomplishments at both the regional and national level, such as earning the highest scoring routine of an entire competition, being recognized for our outstanding costuming, choreography and technique, and winning national competitions 10+ times!

We recently sent off two graduating seniors to continue their dance careers at the collegiate and professional level. Gabby and Rachel had trained at our studio throughout middle school and high school, and grew to be incredibly talented and successful dancers before our eyes. Rachel is pursuing a dance degree here in Michigan, and Gabby is pursuing a commercial dance degree on a scholarship in Los Angeles.
