Competitive Program
Where aspiring dancers shine!

"Technique is what you fall back on when you run out of inspiration" 

Open Company Auditions
 

Each summer we hold auditions to determine where each dancer should be placed for growth and success. We welcome a wide range of skill levels, dancers will be assessed by our amazing

faculty so we can place each dancer where we believe they will thrive.

While auditions are running, there will also be a parent

information meeting running, this is a great opportunity to have

any and all of your competitive questions answered, from fees to time commitments, everything will be covered in this meeting.

There is no charge for our group open audition.

Private auditions are also available for a fee of $25.

Our Competitive program is unlike any other, it provides and nurtures to the wants and needs of each and every student, delivering the highest calibre of training. We promote individuality and versatility and encourage all of our students to find their own voice and their own style. As part of our commitment to excellent instruction, our Competitive Program promotes self-esteem, self-discipline, teamwork and the development of well rounded, technically trained dancers.

Most of our competitive dancers start their journey on our Competitive Team by dancing in Large Groups and Small Groups. We believe that dancing in a Solo, Duet or Trio is a privilege – these types of dances will be awarded to any dancers who we feel have earned the opportunity based on work ethic, commitment, ability and professionalism.

Pre-Competitive

Our Pre-Competitive program is for those dancers wishing to take the “next step” in their training. This unique program is the perfect way to get a taste of the competitive world and is a great opportunity for children to grow their love for dance, enjoy a competitive environment and become part of our competitive family.  

 

Part Time Competitive

This program is designed for dedicated dancers aged between 6 and 18 years.

 

Our Part-Time Competitive Program offers the best of both worlds. Dancers get to experience the exciting world of competitive dance while still leaving time throughout the week to explore other interests. Part-Time students receive structured, well-rounded, and team-focused training from Goddards Studio’s professional, qualified and energetic teachers. In this programme, students will gain confidence, performance skills, self-discipline, and much more.
 

Dancers will grow in their technique and artistry and grow as individuals in an encouraging and family-like environment. Students in this program will also be exposed to many different choreographers and unique class opportunities over the year! This program is open to dancers with at least one to two years of experience and an expressed dedication to being part of a team and enhancing their dance education. Part-Time dancers will train 6 hours per week over two to three days.

Full Time Competitive

This program is designed for dedicated dancers aged between 6 and 18 years.

 

Designed for dancers who want the more out of their training with a bigger commitment, dancers in the full time program are expected to be dedicated to training in a disciplined, technique-intensive program. Dancers will require a strong foundation in technique and performance, they must show self-discipline, dedication and passion to work harder, and focus on each individual dance styes being taught.
