CDA Elite Competition Team

The CDA elite team was created for dancers who are interested in more dancing, performing and competing with other dancers from all over the U.S! The Elite team offers a large variety of training from our certified instructors and will teach your dancer the basics of commitment, hard work, and performance. Members of the team participate in dance conventions and dance competitions throughout the season. All dancers must audition in the summer to be a member of the team, we also require certain summer and fall classes for all team members. There are 3 mandatory competitions that run from the end of February through the middle of May. We give all members multiple opportunities to show their skills and perform as much as possible! The classes required during the regular season vary but consist of 1 lyrical choreography class and 1 jazz choreography class; we also require certain training classes and acro during summer and regular seasons. Other styles such as tap, small groups, solos, duets, trios, lines and other additional dances are by invite only.  The CDA Elite team was started by our very own Dana McIntyre under the owner of Sara Clemmons. Our team grows each year and we love meeting new dancers, if you have any questions about auditions, our classes, or requirements not listed below please contact us!
