What to Expect if you are chosen for Aspire’s Performance Groups:

If your child is interested in advancing their training and participating in more performance opportunities, our competition performance groups are perfect for them.  In addition to a dance competition, these groups will also participate in a dance convention where they take class from other industry professionals, perform at Riverfest, be featured in our Christmas show & May show, do an extra performance of their competition dances on stage probably in February, participate in the Christmas parade, as well as any other farmer's markets or other performance opportunities that arise. The competition performance groups at Aspire require a commitment from August through May for the 2022-2023 season  If selected, the performance groups are required to attend our summer intensive to learn choreography for their Riverfest performance. Details below:

Dance competitions take place in the spring and we will be looking to compete sometime between the end of February-early April. Competition fees range from about $50-$60 per dancer for group numbers. We will be doing some fundraisers for competition/costume fees and are happy to break up tuition payments and any other expenses into multiple payments each month if this is something your child would be interested in doing.
