Welcome to Competition!

The Diretors of the CCPAC competitive team are passionate about 2 things:

One, providing an amazing experience for all of our dancers and their families and two,
delivering on our promise to bring our dancers the very best (and most fun) competitive dance experience they’ll ever have!

Why Do We Offer Competition?

You’ve probably heard us talk about the P.A.C., but how do you know if joining the team is the right path for your child? First, it’s important to remember that we believe dance is invaluable to ALL of our students, no matter how many classes they take! The team’s purpose is grounded in our mission to provide an increasingly comprehensive training for those who want a deeper dance experience. And while there are many reasons why we’ve chosen to offer a competitive program, we can sum them all up within these three overarching objectives: 

1. Training with the benefits of performance.

Because dancers participate in additional classes, rehearsals, and performances at an intensive level, our competitive dancers are spending many hours honing their technique and skills. Even more importantly, they are also developing their artistry, establishing their commitment, growing their resilience, practicing their sportsmanship, and building their teamwork skills. Through these character qualities, they are forming lifelong habits and learning how to cultivate a forward-thinking, positive mindset.

2. Working on goals bigger than yourself.

As part of a group, each competitive member is learning to contribute to a larger purpose – to raise everyone’s potential. That purpose starts out with learning choreography together and then shifts into “practicing and polishing” mode, striving for excellence so that when the performance event arrives, everyone on the team is contributing their best effort. While winning is special, it doesn’t compare to the personal wins that come with dancing your heart out and cheering on your team while they do the same.

3. Preparing to possibly pursue dance in the future.

The in-depth focus on dance that our Dance team offers serves as a platform for our students to consider pursuing dance long-term. They might think about pursuing a professional performance career, studying dance in college, or exploring teaching or choreography. Dance-related careers may pique their interest too, such as photography, journalism, and physical therapy. Being immersed in dance at a young age not only inspires our students to think about the future, it shapes their curiosity about which educational direction might be right for them.

We believe success is all about each child’s personal growth! If the competitive commitment seems like a good fit for your dancer, we would love to provide them with that experience. We invite you to connect with us with any questions you have about the program!
