Concord Dance Academy's Competition Team is made up of over 100 dancers from over 40 New Hampshire cities and towns. The Competition Team is comprised of many dancers ranging in ages 6-18. They perform at seven regional dance competitions and at least one national dance competition throughout the year. The team is chosen from an extensive audition process. Dancers are selected for the competition team because of their technical and artistic abilities, their commitment and desire to learn, their positive attitude and excellent attendance in class. The dancers compete in tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical, open and musical theatre in solos through large groups in each age range.
The Competition Team functions as both a performance group and a competitive team. Students on the Competition Team have learned the value of community service through performing at nursing homes and other community events in the area. The students have participated in a number of fundraisers for the Concord City Auditorium as well as help raise money for local food kitchens. The dancers learn the importance of teamwork, dedication and commitment that is needed to achieve their goals.
Through competition, our dancers are exposed to several different teaching styles, new choreography and the chance to travel and perform in many different venues. Members of our competition team have developed great work ethic and time management skills. These dancers become role models to others and because of that they routinely grow and develop both artistically and academically.
