Competitive Company

Welcome to our 2020-21 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 2019-20 studying the dancers in our current company, and/or observed dancers from our classes and new dancers to LDD via private lessons and their videos, plus reviewed submissions videos to make the BEST teams to compete. Dancers are placed on teams with same skill level and technique. Remember our goal is for each dancer to be nurtured, loved and grow as a dancer and an artist.

For level 6, 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.

 Solos: 

If you have competed one or more years than you are eligible to compete one or two solos. We have assigned a tentative teacher and the genre we feel you will be successful in. We will confirm teachers by Friday. So please check the website on Friday to make sure no changes for your solo have been made. All changes will be posted on website. 

 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.

Monday and Tuesday, Anna Marie will email your class level and your schedule for the dance year. If you have not received by Wednesday 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. 

 

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!

LDD Competitive Company Incentives

Dancer of the Month

In classes, company dancers can receive stars from their teachers when their teacher feels they have gone above and beyond in their training. Whether that be that they learned a new skill, encouraged a teammate, mentored a fellow dancer etc.

At the end of the month the dancer with the most stars wins Dancer of the Month!

DOMinator

The DOMinator is a competitive dancer that has won Dancer of the Month 3 times. Then they will receive a special top monogrammed dance top to wear to all practices!

They will also be invited to participate in a special DOMinator performance at Showcase!

Chaplin

Our Chaplin is chosen from a current level 6 student(s) that show exemplary leadership skills. The Chaplin is in charge of hosting fun social events for our LDD family to create a special bond between all ages and levels.

If you win the top scholarship at a convention, your name will go into a drawing to win a free airline ticket to train in Los Angeles or New York City.
