Dance & Music Academy offers 3 different programs for students that want to pursue dance more seriously.
Performing Company - Company dancers are chosen each Spring by audition. They are required to take 4-5 technique classes per week. Company dancers perform in Woodstock's Nutcracker, Spring Recitals, Riverfest, parades, and at nursing homes.
Competition - Competition dancers compete at regional dance competitions throughout the Southeast. We believe in healthy competition which encourages our dancers to work hard towards the goal of being their personal best. Competition Teams are chosen through audition.
Star Program - A great intermediate step for dancers that want to do more than recreational dancing, but aren't quite ready for Company. Star program students are selected through a placement class.
