Competition Teams

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’re currently home to over a dozen 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 past three seasons since we launched the competition team program, our teams and dancers have 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.

TEAM STRUCTURE

REHEARSALS:
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 falling on weekday early evenings or on weekend afternoons (varies by team.) Rehearsals begin in earnest in the Fall session (September). Team members are also required to take one technique class per session.

COMPETITION EVENTS:
We participate in 4 regional competitions starting in February and ending in May. All the dates are typically locked in August giving the dancers and parents ample time to plan.

STAGE RECITALS:
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.

SOLOS/DUETS/TRIOS:
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.
