HOTVDA offers competitive classes for the more serious dancer. Try outs are held in mid-May for any dancer interested in participating.
There is a $5 audition fee. Competitive class placement for all dancers will be decided upon by our staff and audition judges.
Competition classes are offered in tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, and hip hop and start the week of September 10 and run through early May. Most competition classes (including competition
technique) are held on Sundays but some classes may be held during the week depending on studio and instructor availability. Group classes are 45 minutes long and all solos duets and trios and 30 minutes long. Solo classes will meet every other week.
Strength and conditioning and ballet classes are required for all competitive dancers. These classes offered on Sunday (beginner, intermediate and advanced) as well as technique on Monday evenings (intermediate/advanced) . Each dancer will be assigned to the appropriate level class by the studio staff.
Dancers in our competitive program are required to enroll in at least two summer class. Summer classes are a six week session that begin June 19.
Our competition season begins in Spring. We attend 4 mandatory competitions each season. Competitions are held March through May throughout Wisconsin ( Green Bay, Madison, Wausau, Wisconsin Dells) as well as Chicago and Minneapolis. Once our competitions for the season are chosen, dates will be communicated to families so you can plan accordingly (most likely early summer). We may also discuss the possibility of attending a National level competition.
Contracts and Deposits
Once audition results are released, dancers/parents will have to sign and return our team contract, along with a $100 deposit, to confirm they accept the classes they’ve been placed in. CONTRACTS AND DEPOSITS WILL BE DUE NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, JUNE 15. Failure to return the contact and deposit by the deadline will result in your dancer(s) not being placed in our competitive program. This $100 deposit will go towards dancer’s accounts at the end of our dance season, unless the team contract has been breached. In that case, the $100 DOES NOT go towards the balance of the account and will be used for the added expenses we incur for having to re-choreograph or re-stage routines and added administrative expenses.
Any dancer on a HOTVDA competition team must pay a $25 non-refundable registration fee. The registration fee is per child, not per class. Registration fees are due by the first class in September.
