The Competitive Program is designed for students 6 years and older, wishing to make a bigger commitment to the study of dance. These students are members of a dedicated team of dancers that are given extra performance opportunities through participation in dance festivals and competitions in and around the Edmonton area. In May 2018 (with the exception of our Pre-Junior Team) we will also be attending a dance event in Lake Louise.
Our Team Vision:
The focus of the Flexpointe Competitive program is dancing to ones’ personal best. Students are grouped according to age and ability, which allows them to build strong bonds. Our school values are the heartbeat of our program. We pride ourselves on our dance family environment which encourages teachers, parents and dancers to work together. We believe that together we can achieve great things.
Apart from competitive hip hop; students must be enrolled in a minimum of one ballet class per week and may also enrol in jazz, ballet, tap, lyrical, modern/contemporary, musical theater, acro and/or hip hop. Competitive program students are also given the opportunity to participate in solo, duet, and small group work. Competitive classes will also participate in our annual recital in June. Dance examinations in ballet, jazz and tap are strongly encouraged to ensure a strong technical foundation.
*Placement in this program is subject to approval by the studio Director.
These classes are for the 6 – 8 yr old new to competition performing. Students may enrol in a combination of recreational and competitive classes. For example: may enrol in a competitive jazz class and a recreational ballet class. Please see our recreational program page for information on recreational classes.
Each team has a minimum class requirement of 1 ballet class/week (with the exception of hip hop classes). Students may take a combination of competitive and recreational classes.
