We have a few steps to ensure families have a great enrollment process. The first step is to fill out the Information Request Form. Once your form is received, we will send you more information and follow up with you to walk you through your next steps!
Dancers will need practice half shoes for all team practices. Dancers should also bring (clean) tennis shoes for hip hop. All performance shoes come with costumes (except Fame Company).

Yes! We have partnered with Watch Me Grow to provide a secure live stream for parents to watch all classes and practices. We do not allow parents in classes and practices.
We know dancers are ready to compete when they love dance and they look forward to going to classes and practices. They like to dance at home and have probably put on a dance show for you at home! The most important quality competitive dancers have is the love for dance and the drive to work hard. We will do the rest! We pride ourselves on training dancers and we have seen amazing growth in dancers in just one year. If your dancer WANTS to do it, that is the most important indicator they are ready to compete!
We try really hard to place all dancers who try out on an All Star Team. However, there are instances when a dancer is not quite ready. If your dancer does not make it onto an All Star Team, we encourage them to join a Performance Team. Also, we encourage these dancers to work really hard on their Performance Team, as we are always watching and we take that into consideration for the following year. We also encourage dancers to take private lessons when they are available and technique classes!
It is important for Fame Company dancers to be able to perform by themselves at competitions and performances. If we feel as though a dancer is not ready to perform on their own they may not be placed in The Fame Company. We do work very hard to place everyone in at least one Fame Company routine. There are also a limited number of spots available due to practice schedule availability. Depending on the number of dancers who audition, we may not be able to accept all dancers into the company.
We do our best to challenge dancers at all age levels. We encourage dancers to remain on the team with their age group. Sometimes dancers who move up too quickly start to feel behind compared to the older dancers. We have seen this cause dancers to quit because they are not quite ready for the older team. There are also non-dance differences in maturity that can become tough for younger dancers. However, in certain circumstances we do allow dancers to dance on a team that is older than their age. We do ask the dancer and their parent make that decision wisely.
