Competitive Company

Welcome to our 2021-2022 Competitive Company.

Known as “company” 

Please take a moment and review the teams, solos, duets and trios.

Friendly reminders:

 Anna Marie, myself and the faculty of LDD have spent countless hours over the course of the last year studying the dancers in our current company, and/or observed dancers from our classes and new dancers to LDD at auditions. Dancers are placed on teams with the same skill level and technique and similar age. Remember our goal is for each dancer to be nurtured, loved and grow as a dancer and an artist.

For level 6 teams, the qualifications are for perfectly executed tricks!!! If not perfect, then level 6 is not an option. We feel the teams will be very strong and successful and of course as it is every year, the dancers growth is of our utmost priority.

Team placements are not open for discussion. We will not respond to questions regarding placements. Please do not text, email or call.

ALL TEACHERS WILL BE ASSIGNED MID SUMMER.

 Solos: 

If you have competed one or more years than you are eligible to compete one or two solos. Teachers will be assigned mid summer.

 Duets and trios 

This is the hardest of selections. We always get a lot of request but it is always very hard to fulfill. For a successful duet or trio you must have a twin or triplet in the studio. All matching from body type, style of dancing, technique and the same skill level. We have matched those dancers who we feel met that requirement.

Over the next couple days, Anna Marie will email your class level and your schedule for the dance year. If you have not received by Thursday please let us know. 

Please be sure to download the competitive company BAND app. The link will be in the email Anna Marie sends out. 

COMMITMENT TO COMPANY IS MAY 20TH!

IF YOU WISH TO DROP A ROUTINE/SOLO/DUET/TRIO, YOU WILL NOTATE SO ON YOUR REGISTRATION FORM. PLEASE ONLY EMAIL US IF  WE LEFT OFF YOUR NAME FROM A LINE/PRODUCTION AND YOU MEET THE CRITERIA LISTED.
 
 

Thank you all for being amazing supportive parents and dancers and trusting us with your dance education. We are honored and blessed to train you!
