Performance Team Classes near San Jose
Interested in expanding your performance experience? Try out for Dance Academy USA’s Performance Team! The mission of our Performance Team is to provide a positive, fun and exciting experience for all of our dancers.
Dance Is a Performing Art
It is meant to be shared with other people, and as we know, the only way to become great at something is to practice practice and practice. With that in mind, in 2012 we created the Performance Team. The Performance Team is a team of dancers traveling the community to perform at venues such as Great America, Santana Row, and Christmas in the Park. This is a great way to be part of a team experience without the rigors of a tryout – or – the financial demands and time requirements of the Competition Team.
Be Part of a Team
In our opinion, it’s very important for kids today to be a part of a team and the opportunities to do so are fewer and fewer. It’s quite ridiculous really, a child almost needs to start playing soccer at age 2 to make the high school soccer team. We are happy to provide this opportunity to kids without the unrealistic demands that are typically placed on team experiences. We are really excited about what this team does for kids. In DAUPT, dancers are exposed to a professional dance experience, in a non-competitive environment.
This is the perfect opportunity for that dancer who wants to perform, be part of a DAU team and still be involved in additional extracurricular activities. DAU’s goal is to provide several dance outlets to support all types of creativity. This is also the perfect opportunity for those dancers who want additional performing opportunities or who want to perform outside of the competition environment. The DAUPT contract and application submission are due every spring season.
It is the goal of Dance Academy USA to build a relationship with its community by creating a strong performance team to represent and participate in various arts events and venues throughout the Bay Area. The DAUPT was created for those who wish to broaden their performing experience in a non-competitive environment while instilling the values of teamwork.
Being a part of the Performance Team requires commitment and dedication beyond that of the regular schedule of classes. DAUPT has five mandatory events that may include, but are not limited to, performances at amusement parks, Art and Wine Festivals, Holiday Parades, and more.
By registering for DAUPT, you must fulfill all of the requirements, including attendance at mandatory Choreography Camps and the June DAU Recitals.
Dancers may participate in both Performance Team and Production Company as long as they are able to fully participate in events and classes required.
