The Competitive Program is designed for the serious dancer who demonstrates a natural apt for dance as well as passion for performing. Students who show drive and determination in all classes, while upholding strong work ethic are invited to inquire about our Competitive Program.
There is a great sense of accomplishment when participating on the Competitive Team. In addition to new skills and strengthened technique, a true sense of teamwork is attained as well as one’s self-esteem. The confidence students acquire along with unmatched life lessons are immeasurable.
At Protégé Dance Company, we work hard and have fun too! We take pride in our students’ technical execution as well as their performance quality. However, the real success isn’t measured by the numerous accolades our team receives year-after-year, but in the acknowledgement and praise of our team’s professionalism, kindness and humility from the community.
Time and time again our team is complimented on their grace when accepting awards, respectfulness towards others and their genuine and positive energy both on and off the stage. We support our own and others, taking a holistic approach to competitive training. In addition, our in-house mentorship program cultivates a natural big sister big brother platform, where our senior dancers become fantastic role models to the young ones.
