JUNIOR TROUPE

*BY RECOMMENDATION ONLY

SHINE & VIBE JUNIOR TROUPES

All Dance Zone Junior Troupe programs dance a mandatory 4 hours/week for a 32-week session.

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.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

  • ​ 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.

  • Extra Routines - Junior Troupe dancers have the option of registering for solos, duos, trios & small groups with other dancers of their choice. The Junior Troupe limit for extra routines is 5 Solos/Duos/Trios and 2 Small Groups.
