Covid 19 Update
DSL will not be attending dance competitions until 2021 at the earliest. This term students will focus on preparing a variety of dance numbers that can be taken to competition once we feel it is safe to return.
The Competition Team is open to all students however, students are required to attend all rehearsals to ensure all members of the team are prepared for the competitions.
The Competition Team will prepare choreography in a variety of dance styles including Jazz, Contemporary, Commercial and more. Students will be given the opportunity to compete and perform a diverse selection of dance routines at various events throughout the year. The team goal is not necessarily to take 1st place at an event, but to empower students to be creative, versatile and develop their confidence as a performer.
The Competition Team is very popular and requires a high level of commitment from the students. Parents should be aware of the following additional expenses they may incur before signing up to the competition team:
- Competition entrance fees (approx £10 - £40 per competition)
- Costume hire (approx £10 per hire)
Parents will be emailed details of the competitions being entered at the start of the term. Solos, duets and trios can be choreographed through a scheduled private session.
Students new to the competition team will spend the first term learning choreography before being entered for competitions.
