Dance Obsessions’ competition program requires dedication and commitment from both students and parents alike. We hold mandatory choreography camp in the evenings during the last two weeks of August and Saturday rehearsals during September through January to complete choreography. Thereafter, rehearsals are held after class for groups and two (or more as needed) Saturdays per month for groups, solos, and duo/trios (after Fall choreography has been completed). Students are required to attend at least three local competitions per year.

Communication between the studio directors and parents will be conducted via email. Please be sure to check your email daily for information and updates. If you do not have access to email, please be sure to inform the studio director. General information and competition information is also available on our website, Facebook, and Twitter.

Audition Fees will not be refunded if the student elects not to participate on the team. Additionally, dancers will be refunded Audition Fees ONLY if the dancer is not selected for the team.

Anyone interested in our competition teams can email us and we will send you our Competition Team Rules and Regulations packet.
