Competitive Dance Teams

You deserve to dance with a team that will care for and encourage you, will develop dance technique with you, laugh and learn and grow with you.

Ascension Dance teams give young people a place to feel loved and supported while providing opportunities to improve their strength, flexibility, self-confidence, as they perform in showcases and throughout the community.

Why compete?

For the dancer that loves the thrill and excitement of performing on stage and wants to work towards a common goal with a team environment, dance competitions can provide the motivation and incentive to push themselves to grow and develop to new heights.

Why Ascension Dance?

The Ascension Dance competitive team is a 9-month intensive dance training program where dancers build technique, strength, flexibility, artistry and performance skills in a supportive, team environment. They learn teamwork, healthy competitive nature and strong commitment while building confidence and increasing self esteem. Life-long friendships will be built, and individuals will reach personal goals and achievements they have aspired to.

We provide quality training and offer opportunity to dancers that show great potential, ability and passion for their dance. This program is tuned to those dancers that want to grow and explore their ability, talents and passion through hard work, determination, team spirit and above all accomplishment within their aspiration for dance.

Our competitive model differs from others in our industry. Although competing is the end goal, our focus is on building skilled, strong, confident, and determined dancers first. The fundamentals of dance are foundational in a dancer’s ability to perform, so each week includes class time to develop technique, conditioning, strength and flexibility. We create our schedule to be flexible, and encourage interaction and shared class time across skill-sets and disciplines. Our schedule also allows team members the flexibility to participate in other extra-curricular activities and family events.
