Fusion Dance Academy Company is a combination of Fusion Dance Academy's soloist, duets, ensemble, and groups who want to travel and compete throughout the year. Every year we hold 2 auditions for the competition company, May and August. The instructors hold auditions to allow your child to excel every year to the next level. The instructors select which dance style the dancer would be best suited for. Many dancers are eligible for many styles and categories of dance. Parents and dancers decided from the list which dances they would like to be apart of.
The competitions take place in and around Arkansas between the months of January and May. Anyone who joins Fusion Dance Academy Company will purchase group apparel. The Fusion Dance Academy Company dancers will pay for costumes, competition fees, and studio fees up front in one lump sum. (you can break the payments up if you need to) We will compete at 5 competitions, which will be mandatory.
The Apparel will include: black jazz pants $24.00 and jazz top $23.00(this will be to dance around town as a team.)
This is optional not mandatory to have;
warm ups $75.00
Garment Bag $17.00
