ABOUT OUR TEAMS
B2D is home to various competition teams for dancers between the ages of 7 and 17, with skill levels ranging from beginner to advanced. We currently run competition teams in Hip Hop, Contemporary, Jazz, and Tap.
While our teams’ focus is on competition, our mantra encompasses a broader range of objectives, including building a strong dance foundation, embracing the spirit of collaborative team work, and exercising the highest sportsmanship at all times.
–COMPETITION SEASON RESULTS:
For the current 2018 season, our teams and dancers earned wide recognition at the various regional competition events we attended. The teams received countless first place scores, won various special judges awards, and received a slew of high-platinum adjudication awards. A few of our dancers were also honored with the Ms. Title award, which is the highest award given to soloists.
Our coaches have also won various accolades for their choreography work, including Best Choreography and Best Staging, Precision & Execution, awards. The studio itself was honored with the much-coveted Top Studio award at the prestigious WCTE competition.
2018 Team Auditions

Please review the audition Schedule below to apply for the audition that best suits your age (as of 9/4/18), skill level, and dance style of choice.

APPLY TO AUDITION:
Please complete the online form below to select the audition you’d like to attend. The audition fee is $20 per dancer.
The teams rehearse year-round, with a heavily reduced schedule during the Summer. Rehearsal is between 1.5 to 2 hours per week for most teams, typically on Friday evenings, Saturday or Sunday afternoon (varies by team.) Rehearsals begin in earnest in the Fall session (September). Team members are also required to take one technique class per session.
We typically participate in 3 to 4 regional competitions starting in February. All the dates are typically locked in August giving the dancers and parents ample time to plan.
In addition to competition events, our teams also perform at our semi-annual recitals, held in the Spring and Fall at the prestigious Rachel Schlesinger Concert Hall.
In addition to being part of a team, dancers also have the opportunity to participate in solo, duet, or trio entries. There are specific guidelines on how to apply for such entries. Once a dancer becomes part of our competition team program, we will provide them with full details on the process.
