Duet Dance PERFORMANCE TEAM

DUETTES & JUNIOR DUETTES

Duet Dance Performance Team serves as Duet Dance Academy’s program for our Elementary (K through 5th grade) and Teen (Middle and High School) recreational dancers who would like to take their dance training to the next level and enjoy more performance opportunities.  The Performance Team is two groups dancers divided by age/grade:

  • Junior Duettes for grades Kindergarten through 5th Grade

Performance Team members train 2 hours per week with a 1 hour Performance Team Choreography Class and a 1 hour Technique Class to develop skilled technique, advanced movement, and excellent performance quality. These dancers attend regional local festivals, parades, and other community events to represent the studio and show off their skills.
