Competitive Program

Creator’s Arts Centre Competitive Program: 

For the dancer looking to push themselves as an individual and learn how to have integrity in a competitive environment. Competition is part of life — no matter what career path you end up on. And our competitive program prepares your child to build now the skills they will need later to walk through their adult lives with confidence and grace. We believe that skills like self-motivation, active listening and knowing what your strengths and weaknesses are as a person are integral to being successful in life and these are the skills we encourage our competitive students to develop.

Dancers in the competitive program become members of “Impact Performance Company” have a set amount of rehearsal hours with a choreographer and are expected to also rehearse themselves weekly.
