Friendship. Teamwork. Technique. Community.
ABDC offers a competition team program for dancers entering grades 1-12. We work hard to foster a team environment that encourages good sportsmanship, teamwork, fun, and hard work! Depending on the age of the dancer and the team, competition team members take classes in ballet, tap, and jazz, plus rehearse weekly with their team. Our program focuses on creating well-rounded performers, who also value the impact that dance can have on the community.
One of the core values of ABDC, and our competition team program, is community service. Our dancers perform a holiday show at local nursing homes and on the Beacon Santa Telethon. They also fundraise throughout the year as a HOPE STUDIO for Dancers Against Cancer, an organization that provides financial assistance to members of the dance community impacted by cancer. They build relationships with all team members through our Team Sibling program, and create lasting friendships.
Our team members attend competitions and conventions throughout the school year, and well as performing at various other local events.
