Arena Dance

Competition Team: Our competitive dance squad is made of dancers ages 5 -18 who want to take their dance to the next level and compete both locally, regionally, and nationally.  Dancers train in ballet, technique and other styles.  Our team has won numerous awards over the years and holds auditions in late May/early June each year.  


Arena Spirit Squad: Our Spirit Squad is a non-auditioned performance-based dance group who performs locally at sports events, and other exhibition opportunities.  Ages 8-12 welcome-their season is September-May.  This is a great option for those that don't want the commitment level of the competition team but still want to gain valuable performance and pom technique experience.
