Competitive Division at Elite Studios

 The competition program at Elite Studios is an exclusive group of dancers selected by Elite Studios Director and staff to train at the highest level. Dancers who wish to participate in the competitive division must be accepted into the program. Our Competitive Division is made up of 3 companies: The Core, The Collective, and Petite Elites. Companies are divided up into individual companies based primarily on age and are enrolled in a set curriculum of classes designed to develop the most technical, versatile, and strong dancers.

The Core & Collective classes are by audition only and classes are not open to the general studio population. The 2 companies exist to offer to different paths for our competitive dancers. The Collective Company is a company designed for dancers who wish to participate in competition dance, but at a lesser time commitment. The Core Company is a company designed for dancers who wish to pursue dance at the highest level of training and commitment is a vast one both timely and monetarily. It is expected that The Core not participate in activates outside of dance as the obligation is time-consuming but extremely rewarding. The Core & Collective participate in our charity concert each winter, The Benefit, as well as 5 – 7 regional convention and competitions (The Core) and 2 – 3 regional convention and competitions (The Collective), along with many other activities. Dancers entering the 3rd – 12th grade may audition for The Core or The Collective.

For our dancers in Kindergarten – 2nd grade, we have our Petite Elite Company! Petite Elites is an invitation only company for our youngest dancers to begin their competitive dance journey! Dancers in Kindergarten – 2nd grade have the opportunity to be evaluated for our Invitation Only Petite Elite company for our youngest level of competition dance! Petite Elites participate in 1 convention and 1 competition a year, while also participating and training alongside The Core & The Collective to begin their competition dance journey! If you are interested in your dancer being evaluated for the Petite Elite company, please send us an email at

For more information on either The Core, The Collective, or Petite Elites, questions about auditions, or any other related item, please fill out our Contact Form on our Contact Page and we will be happy to answer any questions you have & send you the 2019-2020 Information Packet!
