When you become of member of our competition team, dancers will experience a new and exciting level of dance, performing and the thrill of competition. Through hard work and dedication these dancers will learn teamwork, camaraderie, self-esteem, and the ability to take constructive criticism and use it to improve as performers. Our philosophy on competition is to use it as a training tool for each dancer, to see other dancers and styles and levels of accomplishment. Participation in such events is a reflection of DWA’s commitment to a well-rounded dance education for the dancer. It is not only about the way we train our dancers, but also on how we as teachers, influence them as people.
