An additional class focused on choreographing a group routine which will be entered in various dance competitions during April & May. Dancers must be enrolled in prerequisite Ballet technique class and Tap technique to participate in Tap Choreography.

Dancers in our competitive choreography program must be able to commit to all rehearsals, competitions and performances, and will be expected to meet all dress, hair and makeup requirements as outlined by the choreographer. Due to the team nature of competing with a group, dancers must be fully dedicated as their fellow dancers and instructor count on them in order for the group to be successful.
