Ready to start competition? Choose Elite Dance Project and dance with TEN TIME NATIONAL CHAMPIONS

At Elite Dance Project, we pride ourselves in offering the best technical training in the Lapeer area with the fiercest competition program.

2023/24 Competition Team Auditions: August 6th. Please email for more information! 


Elite Dance Project is home to an incredibly successful competition team. Joining a competition team is a great step in every 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 out of state nationals in the summer. For our dancers who wish to participate in additional competitions, we offer the opportunity for them to attend additional optional competitions. We are passionate in our belief that competition dance is a positive learning experience and we want to make it a possibility for all families. Therefore, we offer three programs for families to choose from to fit all schedules and budgets. Following auditions, our staff will work very carefully to place students into groups, duets and trios based on their skill level and age. 


Introduction to competition is our least expensive and demanding competition program. This program requires students to attend one ballet class per week. In addition, they learn and compete with one group routine at each competition. 


Part-time competition requires students to attend ballet and one additional class of choice weekly. These students will participate in several group routines. These students are not eligible to audition for solos, duets or trios. 


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 regional titleholders. We have received countless first overalls and special awards at competitions in Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Indiana, and Kentucky. We have achieved major accomplishments at both the regional and national level, such as earning the overall highest scoring routine of an entire competition against over 450 other routines, and being recognized for our outstanding costuming, choreography and technique. Some of our specific accomplishments include winning several GRAND national championships, one of our students being one of three dancers at our 2021 Nationals to earn a $1,000 scholarship to the Summer in Studio Commercial Dance Program in Los Angeles, group routines remaining completely UNDEFEATED the entire season (consisting of 11 competitions across three states) and eventually going on to win first place and an overall technique award at Nationals, and earning both a golden ticket and two Industry Dance Award People's Choice Nomination. Most recently, our students Gabriella and Kiana were signed to be represented by Go 2 Talent Agency, a leading agency for professional dancers based in Los Angeles, CA!
