Engage Competition Crew

Our Comp Crew program is an opportunity for dancers ages 7-18 to work with professional caliber choreographers to develop and compete in dances in various genres, including ballet, hip hop, jazz, contemporary, musical theatre, and lyrical styles. Comp Crews compete at two competitions, two competitions/conventions in the Chicagoland area, and a national competition. 

Award-Winning Teams

Some of the goals for this program include developing a strong sense of unity,  camaraderie, and competitive spirit as a team while providing technical development and mentorship on an individual level helping each team member grow to become the best dancer/competitor he or she can be.

By joining Comp Crew, each student is committing to a year-round program starting in our summer intensive in June and culminating at our all-studio recital. Auditions take place in the late spring each year.  The summer schedule includes choreography, technique, leaps & turns, and rotational classes featuring jazz, ballet, and hip hop.  In the fall, dancers continue their training with their team-specific choreography class and additional technique classes.  Each team will compete in a minimum of two dances at each competition during the season.  Dancers can choose to perform in additional specialty pieces based on their interests and abilities as well as have the opportunity for a solo/duo/trio based on faculty recommendation.

Interested in auditioning?  Dancers can prepare for auditions with a variety of studio-offered classes.  A ballet technique class, as well as a Contemporary, Lyrical, or Extreme Jazz & Hip Hop class, are recommended.  Information meetings will be held each spring to answer questions and allow parents and dancers a chance to get more information on what it means to be a Crew dancer!
