Commitment Level:

The XT members are required to participate from August through Nationals, which is typically beginning of July. This is a serious commitment and will not be taken lightly. Participants are expected to fulfill this commitment, and will be required to sign a parent/student agreement. The Xtreme Team attends 1-2 conventions, 3-4 regional competitions, and 1 national competition in the summer.

 

Benefits of competition:

Competing against the finest teams allows our teachers and students the opportunity to be inspired by the talent across the country.  This is how XT is continuously improving and evolving with the times while challenging ourselves to grow to new heights.  Students who wish to pursue dance professionally have an opportunity to grow and develop their performance skills through competition.  Competition allows the dancer to perform more frequently and teaches them the importance of thriving under pressure.  The XT is also required to attend 1-2 conventions per season, giving our dancers the opportunity to take class from teachers who are currently working professionally.  Being apart of our competition team helps a dancer build their confidence while simultaneously becoming a well-rounded, well-trained performer.
