Performance & Company Teams

Our performance/company teams are an elite group of students who are required to study many forms of dance; they perform and compete throughout the year. These students work very hard to find rapid growth in their dance training. These students grow at an accelerated rate above regular curriculum students due to all the performance opportunities and multiple classes they take. The purpose of our teams is to improve performance ability, technique and challenge the dedicated dancer. Auditions are required to be eligible for teams. Auditions held the week after our annual recital.

Socorra’s Performing Arts Studio is committed to providing high-quality dance classes to enhance the overall development of the child. We provide a safe and child-centered environment to encourage our students to explore dance with qualified, nurturing teachers.

We believe that dance training encourages young people to develop a positive self-image as they increase awareness of their physical being. Along with improving coordination skills and developing muscular awareness, dance classes give children the freedom to express themselves through movement.

The highest educational standards are expected from all Socorra’s Performing Arts Studio faculty members. They are lifelong learners who continue to educate themselves through certification programs, teacher-training schools, conferences, and other learning opportunities.
