SHINE & VIBE JUNIOR TROUPES

This program includes Jazz, Tap, Hip-Hop & Ballet dance styles.
Our Junior Troupes participate in 2 recitals & 2 local dance competitions, with the option of 1 away dance competition.
This program gives students the preparatory skills needed to advance into a troupe program in the future.
Ballet is non-competitive class
Performance tights & Earrings are not included in your costume fee, therefore each junior troupe member will be responsible for ensuring that they have at least two pairs of performance tights & earrings as per our Dance Zone recommendation.
Junior Troupe members are required to purchase a team jacket/hoodie to wear at all competitions & events.
Junior Troupe members are expected to attend classes regularly and be committed to making classes a priority over social events. Attendance is an important aspect of being a team player and encourages your troupe to excel.
