Company Competition Team
MOVE Dance Company is home to an award-winning team of dancers between the ages of 5 and 17, with skill levels ranging from Advanced Beginner to Advanced. We currently run a curriculum-based program in Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, and Tap.
While our teams’ focus is on competition, our main objective encompasses a broader range, including, but not limited to, building a strong dance foundation, embracing the spirit of collaborative team work, and exercising the highest level of sportsmanship at all times.
