Garden City Dance Studio offers a competitive dance team for children ages 5 and up. The team competes annually in both a locally-hosted "Regionals" competition and a "Nationals" finals competition held within the tri-state area.
All students interested in joining the competition team are required to audition. Students accepted to the Garden City Dance Studio competitive team will take 2-15 classes per week, depending on age and skill level. Students will also attend workshops and master classes with guest choreographers.
Students will be directly trained in technique, choreography, showmanship, and will learn discipline, character, time management, and organization by participating on our team. Most of all, our team members develop lifelong friendships! Training with our competition team will prepare your student for college/university dance teams and professional work.

Special events will be available to students who are interested in performing out-of-state. Past events have included team trips to Disney World (Florida).
Our team members are expected to be supportive of one another and treat their teammates with kindness at all times. Teamwork skills are a must. Please note that we do NOT tolerate any sort of bad behavior of any kind, from students or their parents. Students can be removed from our team at our Director’s discretion.
Pricing and fees will be discussed in person with parents.
