RJ's Competition Teams
RJ's Competition Teams are focused on serious dancers that want to take their dance education to the highest pre-professional level. We look for dancers with good attendance, attitude, technique, and overall coachability. We look for well-rounded dancers who excel in all styles of dance. Dancers must possess dedication, passion, hard work, and effort. Our teams are some of the most highly regarded in the country and regularly receive the highest placements and awards at prestigious regional and national competitions. These teams dance among some of the nation's best dance studios and perform for top artists.
Dancers must audition in the summer to participate in the following year's competition season. Dancers wishing to audition are encouraged to attend open ballet and jazz classes during the summer and are REQUIRED to attend the Summer Intensive.
If selected, dancers are expected to attend 2 regional dance conventions, 4-5 regional competitions, and 1 national competition (every other year). Dancers also participate in local community events. Our competition directors determine the placement of students on the team and the number of competitive routines given to a dancer.
RJ's high school Team
The RJ's High School Competition Team is a separate team that was created just for our dancers who also participate on high school dance/cheer teams or in other sports, clubs, and activities. These are dancers who still take their dance education seriously and want to compete, but due to other activities need a lesser commitment.
