Part-Time Competitive Program
CDC also has the perfect opportunity for those who have been dancing in recreational to experience the excitement of competitive dance. Our part time competitive program is based on 5 disciplines with a minimal time commitment taught by our full time staff. Ideal for the newcomer to competitive, but also full time dancers looking for a step back from the demands of a full time program.
This program takes our youngest dancers and helps them put their best foot forward on the path towards competitive dance. With 2 hours a week in Jazz and Ballet, they get a fun introduction to what the world of competitive dance is all about. These dancers do not compete but perform in our year-end show at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga.
The next progression from our Pico program, these dancers train 4 hours a week in Ballet, Jazz and Tap. They will take their first steps on the competitive stage with their Jazz routine while also getting the opportunity to perform all 3 disciplines at our year-end show.
Micros take the plunge into the true training of competitive dance with a higher level of focus on technique and presentation. Their 6-hour a week program continues to nurture their excitement for dance. Training in Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap and Acro while only competing their Jazz and Hip Hop routines gears them towards a more full time commitment.
With well-established skills our Pre-Junior dancers continues to experience the competitive dance world.
