Being a member of the team:
To be a member of a contest team, you will have to sign a our APDD COMPANY TEAM CONSTITUTION stating that you have read it thoroughly and that you promise to abide by our policies. Please make sure to thoroughly read through ahead of time so that you will understand everything about being on a company team. This document can be found on our website under the COMPANY TEAM tab. Being on a contest team is a big responsibility. Please consider the commitment you will have to make before trying out for a team.
There are multiple events that will be mandatory for all contest team members. This year, we will have a summer classes TBA, dress rehearsals, two competitions, community performances (Treats on the Streets, Diamonette Spring Show) and our annual recital. All of these events will be mandatory. Community performances will only be mandatory for elect teams performing.
We use the demerit system to enforce rules for the contest teams. Team members will have to work off these demerits in a timely fashion in order to remain on the team. Please read through our constitution for more information on this! Although this is used for discipline, please understand that this is also a healthy way of conditioning to build up the dancers strength and endurance.
For the past couple of years, we have had fundraisers through our parent booster club! Please sign up. We are also looking for a new president this year!! Although fundraisers are not mandatory, we strongly suggest that you use these to your benefit! Being on a contest team can get pricey as the year progresses. Some kids earned up to $500 by participating in our fundraisers last year! Please take advantage of our fundraisers!!!
Tuition is $55 for one hour a week (One team - 1 dance)
Tuition is $100 for 2 hours a week (Two teams - 2 dances - for example: Mini Hip Hop & Mini Jazz)
Tuition is $85 for an hour and a half per week. Only available for advanced students doing three dances of different genres, instead of just one. There are some special discounts for contest students and siblings.
*This year, we will be offering a special opportunity for former Mini dancers. This will include a 2 hour class but will include a Hip Hop, Jazz, and Lyrical routine. For those who do not make all 3 routines, we are considering including them in the 2 hour class ($100/month) so that they may learn the required technique desired. However, they will only compete and perform the dances that they make at tryouts!
Being on a contest team is not only a big responsibility and dedication for the student, but for the entire family as well. Being on a contest team is a big financial responsibility that should be considered before signing up or trying out.
Competitive teams offered 2019 – 2020
"Junior" Hip Hop Team
JV or Varsity Team (3 genres)
Please understand that not every team may make. Teams are created by skill, level, and interest (number of students)
These are not official team names. Team names will be assigned after tryouts!
When signing up please let us know what you would like tryout for! Levels (Tiny/Mini/Jr/Jv/Varsity) will be considered during tryouts! We need to know what genres of dance you are open to, or if you are only interested in ONE dance such as hip hop. Please understand that it is very difficult to make a "Jazz" team if you have never had any Jazz training!
