Programs for the Competitive Dancer

At Premiere Dance Academy, we offer programs and classes for individuals with an innate passion for dance. In the Competitive Division, our dancers push themselves to succeed, polish their technique, and take part in competitions to show off their talents.

We develop our students into well-rounded, polite, and confident dancers that look forward to competing and that feeling of accomplishment. Although we push our dancers to give it their all, we place value on personal skill acquisition rather than winning, so they truly gain an appreciation for the art of dance.

Programs

Our Competitive Team Dancers are chosen and show interest in all Levels, Ages and Dance Genres. The starting age for our Competitive Teams is 5 Yrs. Old.  This is an opportunity for all dancers to be a part of our Competitive Team of like-minded students and add another exciting and fun experience to their dance training. We have 2 Streams a Beginner Team called Rising Stars that compete in Calgary and a more Experienced Competitive Dance Team that does travel out of town to other Cities and Provinces.
