Ballet Studio Earn Top Honors
The competition program at The Ballet Studio, TEAM TBS, has been developed for our dancers who want to take their dance skills to the next level, while still having the time available for other school and extracurricular activities. The average amount of hours that our competition dancers dance is 3 hours per week. This places us in the INTERMEDIATE level at the dance competitions. We have won numerous high golds, platinums, high platinums, special judges awards, and Nationals at this level! So many of our dancers are involved in other activities ( sports, school plays, singing, karate, playing instruments, horse back riding, ice skating, etc.) and we want them to be able to have the time to enjoy these activities AND dancing at our studio!
Our program consists of 3 age levels...
Peewees - (grades 2nd to 5th)- Level 1
Juniors - (grades 6th to 8th)- Level 1.5
Seniors - (grades 9th to 12th)- Level 2
All dancers participating on our team will attend the once a week Wednesday evening competition class.
TEAM TBS dancers who would like to advance their dance skills and strengthen their technique,
in addition to attending the Wednesday evening class, may dance in our program on Saturdays, level 3 TEAM TBS.
This level consists of a large group (approximately 8-10 dancers) who dance for one hour, and a small group (approximately 5 dancers)
who dance in both the large and small group, a total of 2 additional hours. The requirement for the Saturday class is junior
and senior dancers with two full years on TEAM TBS. For more information pertaining to this program, please contact
us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SOLOS, DUETS, and TRIOS
Students in any level of the competition program may perform a solo, duet, or a trio dance in one, two,
or all three of the competitions. Th Please contact our TEAM TBS Director, Miss Sherri Di Stefano at email@example.com,
for more information. These dances will be taught by Miss Cara, TEAM TBS (Assistant Director), Miss Amanda, Miss Olivia,
Miss Sherri, and Miss Courtney. The cost of each solo session is $250.00 per dancer for all 4 sessions, $150.00 per dancer for all 4 duet sessions,
and $100.00 per dancer for all 4 trio sessions. Each dancer will have a total of 4 sessions in their solo, duet, and trio dances,
beginning in the fall, and then 2 additional sessions at the studio (for no additional cost), with ALL dancers competing is solos,
duets, and trios, prior to the first competition. We will contact our dancers, after the recital in June, to discuss scheduling.
The Ballet Studio, if invited, may enter The National Competition for one of the three competitions in which we have competed.
A decision to go to Nationals will be made by the competition staff, parents, and dancers, after the regional competitions are
completed. Participation in the National competition is not mandatory, but preferred. Some dancers, due to prior commitments,
may be unable to attend.
The only two additional requirements for TEAM TBS, above and beyond weekly scheduled classes, are the following...
Guest Teacher Workshop(s)- Our PEE WEE, JUNIOR, and SENIOR dancers are asked to attend either of the two
workshops (please see calendar on the competition updates page). The total cost is $80.00/per each four hour workshop.
Dancers who would like to attend both workshops may attend the second for half the cost, which is $40.
The workshops are important for our competition dancers, helping to strengthen their technique, along with
attending regularly scheduled weekly classes. The fees for the workshops and classes are due by September
26th and are non-refundable. The schedule and registration forms for the workshops will be given out the
first class in September.
