Competitive Team

Charlie and Grace Swingin'

For those interested in a more competitive environment, the competitive team is the way to go. Practicing three times a week (generally on Wednesday and Thursday nights and Saturday mornings), the competitive team focuses primarily on six dances:

  • Waltz
  • Tango
  • Foxtrot
  • Rumba
  • Cha-Cha
  • Triple-Step Swing

As you progress in the team you also have the chance to learn upper-level dances and international dances such as:

  • Standard Waltz
  • Standard Foxtrot
  • Quickstep
  • Mambo
  • Viennese Waltz

We are currently working on expanding the number of competitions that we attend as a team, but currently averages to about 4 competitions a year, with numerous social events to attend between them. 

Auditions for the competitive team are held at the beginning of each school year, with the month of September being used for basic instruction to prepare all students interested in auditioning.
