Micki’s Dance Connection is very proud to have a very strong MDC Competitive Team consisting of presently 115 dancers ranging in age from 3 – 18 years. Our competitive team consists of dancers who love to perform and compete in a positive, fun environment that instills self-esteem, discipline , creativity, confidence, work ethic and development of well-rounded, technically trained dancers.
The MDC competitive team enters in four – five competitions each year that are in the months of April & May.
Within our large MDC competitive team we are fortunate to be able to offer 2 different levels of competitive dance. Level 1, or ‘B’ Company team is designed for the student who loves to dance and wishes to compete, but does not want to train more than 6 hours per week. This program requires less hours of training than our ‘A’ Company team, keeping the number of classes and time commitments down. ‘B’ Company team is lead by Miss Jennifer and has dancers ranging in age from 3 to 17 years old. This program offers the opportunity to excel in all areas of performance, while building confidence, self esteem, sportsmanship and teamwork.
