2023-2024 Competition Team Auditions
We are expanding competition opportunities for 2023-2024! All dance competitions offer tiered levels of competition. Dancers qualify for levels based on “time in the studio”. Our newly forming Performing Squad would qualify for recreational or intermediate divisions. Our Performing Company would qualify for elite or advanced divisions. No dancer can compete in both divisions.
All dancers interested in competitive dance programs will need to attend auditions May 22nd and May 23rd at Burns Dance Studio. See below for more information.
