Our annual competition boot camp is required for all dancers planning to compete under Tenth Talent for the upcoming season. This 5 day camp*** (see below) heavily focuses on all styles of dance as well as strength, flexibility and improv. Our boot camp also doubles as our Evaluations to see which dancers work well together and can be considered for teams for the upcoming season. We don't consider these evaluations as "try outs" because every child will make a team as long as they have other dancers their age group and/or skill level to dance with. Every student is REQUIRED to purchase ankle weights to use at Boot Camp and throughout the season. The final day of boot camp will be reserved for Company Headshots and our official Competition Kickoff Party!
OUR 5 DAY COMPETITION BOOT CAMP IS $120 AND WILL BE HELD AUGUST 10-14 FROM 9AM-2PM
*** = Full 5 day camp is for ages 8 & up, we will have our tiny boot camp with reduced hours for ages 3-7 priced at $90

Required classes for ages 3-7 consist of one weekly stretch/conditioning class, one weekly tiny ballet/tap class and our tiny skills class. Our tiny acro class is HIGHLY recommended for our tiny competition students to improve flexibility, strength and balance.
Required classes for ages 8 & up consist of BOTH weekly stretch/conditioning classes, BOTH weekly ballet classes, as well as our Skills class and Improv. Our Combo class which focuses on Jazz, Contemporary and Hip-Hop (see Class Descriptions) is HIGHLY recommended for competition students to improve memorization skills and versatility.
All competition students are required to attend at least 1 dance convention, 4 regional dance competitions and 1 national dance competition over the course of the dance season. Depending on the amount of young dancers interested, we may introduce a pre-competition team that only attends 2 competitions per season as a relaxed approach to competing.
