GDA Competition Team Dancing in Disney Performing Arts

Competition Team

Competition Team is open to most students in the Studio. It is for the student who wants to make Dance their primary extra-curricular activity. Our dancers consistently win Titles, Top Awards, Judges Awards and cash awards at competitions throughout New England. We fully embrace a sense of team and instill values of team work, commitment, self motivation and giving back to the community.

How much is tuition?
Competition tuition is the same as recreational tuition.

Is Ballet Required?
Ballet technique is the foundation for all styles of dance. Competitive dancers are REQUIRED to take a ballet technique class AND a ballet dance class. We are one of the few studios that also compete our ballet dances.

The Elite Travel Competition Team goes on to perform in places like Walt Disney World, Cruise Ships, Hershey Park, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, etc. Only those students who are current Competition Team members will be considered for this prestigious group. We have given over 200 dancers the opportunity to dance in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. In 2011, dancers performed on Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas cruise ship while enroute to Bermuda. In 2017 we danced in Walt Disney World with over 50 dancers.

We also give back to the community by dancing at nursing homes, competing to support organizations with prize money and charity events like the UMass Cancer Walk. We also support Sophia’s FUNd and the Jacob Boudreau Scholarship Fund.
