Looking to kick things up a notch?

The Studio School of Dance’s competitive dance teams are an elite group of award winning students who are hand selected based on expertise and talent. Our hard working dancers and teachers are dedicated to excellence and have been awarded the highest honors in regional competitions all over the tri-state area. 

Our competitive program is designed to truly challenge and inspire serious dancers who are ready to put their skills to the test. Our teams offer conditioning, technical training, industry leading choreography and the personal attention you will not find anywhere else. 

While we focus on giving students the ability to pursue dance as a profession, the skills learned in our competitive program have proven to be a benefit to students in all career choices. Self-discipline, confidence, self-expression, perseverance, responsibility, and time management are just a handful of the qualities that our competition team students are guaranteed to master.

We Offer Three Groups of Competitive Teams

Pre-Competitive Teams

For children who would like to become a part of our award-winning competition companies, the Pre-competitive Teams serve to prepare dancers to join our competitive group.

Students enrolled in Pre-competitive teams will take an array of preparatory classes for one year while they prepare their number for the following year’s competition. Pre-competitive dancers are able to refine their skills while having extra time to perfect their future competition dances.  

After one year in the Pre-Competitive program, most students will progress to The Studio’s competitive teams.

Competition season is kicked off with a pre-season bootcamp just before the start of every fall dance season. Our students work hard throughout the fall and winter to prepare for competitions that start in February and continue monthly through the end of May. When not attending a competitive event, our teams continue their training by performing at local events including NY Knicks Basketball games, the Mount Kisco St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and The St. Patrick’s Day Carnival, among others.
