Competitive & Performance Dance Teams

Dance Lessons Teach Life Lessons!

Interested in being a part of our Competitive & Performance Dance Teams at Destination Arts? Contact us for more information!

We will have 8 teams for the 2019-2020 Season starting at age 5 and going to age 18:

  • Tinys
  • Minis
  • Performance Teams (Youth team & Preteen team)
  • Petites
  • Juniors
  • Tweens
  • Teens/Seniors

You will ultimately be placed by ability and instructor discretion, as some teams may overlap ages.







Our Competitive Team Auditions are Saturday, June 22, 2019!

  • Ages 5-9 – 10:00-11:30am *new students age 5-9 or previous team members in our tiny & petite teams*
  • Ages 10+ – 12:30pm-3:00pm *new students age 10+ or previous team members in our performance, junior, tween, teen or senior teams*

You will need your jazz and tap shoes for auditions – you can use ballet shoes or foot undeez if you don’t currently have jazz shoes

Not available to tryout on June 22? We will have a makeup audition date on Friday, July 26, 2019 at 6pm.

— All dancers that make our team are required to take our Summer Dance Bootcamp for their particular age group listed HERE.

— All team members (or those planning to audition at the later date) are also required to take at least 3 weeks of the 4-week summer class session to keep up their technique. Those classes are listed HERE.

Current team members must re-audition each year for team placement. All team fees/time commitments, etc. are given out with team placements, so you will know up front what to expect if you were to accept. Please contact us if you have any additional questions!

There is a $20 fee for the audition class on tryout day. You do need to pre-register at the link below to secure your spot (also for makeup auditions.)


“I had been coming to Destination Arts during the summers for the past few years to take summer classes and enjoy fun intensives and camps. I loved it so much that it was the main reason I moved from my home state to live in NC with my mom! I love the school and the teachers and students are incredibly kind and welcoming!”

We look forward to dancing with you!

“Coming to DAC after being at a different studio for 8 years, we didn’t know what to expect. Now, after only 3 months of being at this studio, I couldn’t imagine having my girls anywhere else.

The staff is super friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to help where needed. Communication flows freely and we are always kept up to date on studio news. As a parent of a competitive dancer, our schedules are always up in the air, but Cameron and Dylana made sure we had most (if not all!) dates up front so we can plan around them.

We LOVE Destination Arts and are so excited to be a part of their growing family!”
