THE ELITE

COMPETITION TEAM

The Elite of Elite

A place on the Competition team is for extremely gifted dancers who participate in multiple classes. Representing the school at local and national competitions, the Elite ‘squad’ train under professional conditions.

Every dancer aged ten to fifteen years old will have the opportunity to audition for the squad. Auditions are held annually.

Competition classes run once a week in Chiswick (West London) and Wimbledon (South-West London). A 100% attendance rate is expected for competition class.

Although competing in dance is ultimately hugely rewarding, we would like to stress that it is not for everyone. Very much like a sporting environment, dance competitions can be intense. Dancers should expect to be held to a professional standard and critiqued by judges.

To enquire about the team and the audition process please contact our Vice Principal: rebekah@eliteda.co.uk
