Competitive Teams

Take your urban dance training to the next level! Challenge yourself with more advanced techniques and choreo plus battle top dancers at a National Street Dance Competition. This program runs Sept 2017 to May 2018 (a full season commitment required)

  • Advance your techniques in a variety of street dance genres including hip hop, house, funk styles (popping, locking, animation), dancehall, waacking and more! Throughout the season, competitive dancers will learn a minimum of two choreographed routines sampling from a variety of urban styles. Ability to pick up choreography and maintain attendance is therefor a must!

This event features top studios, crews and professional dancers from across Canada with a judging panel consisting of top artists and choreographers from the hip hop dance industry. Classes will also enter one local competition in April/May 2016 based on class interest and availability.
