Marco Island Dance Academy Competition Team



Our Goal

Our goal with the Marco Island Dance Academy competition team is to help create well rounded dancers and young people. The experience of competition is not about winning. It is about growing and maturing young dancers with accountability in respect, hard work and positive attitudes. We are only competing against ourselves and striving to gain confidence and work ethic; winning and awards are secondary.



Team  MINIS- Ages 5-6





Team  SENIORS- Ages 15-17

PRICING: We have created a special Flat Membership rate for our competition team members:  Competition Team members will be billed a Flat $245 per month per dancer participating on the competition Team.  This will include 2 (1 hour classes per week for Group comp routines) and two additional classes consisting of Acro & Ballet. There is a block schedule this year so the Ballet & Acro classes will follow either before or after their choreography day.  MINI Team will only have 30 minutes two times a week of choreography and then a ballet or acro class following.

                                                 Dress Code

Participating on a competition team requires more professionalism than the regular Dance classes. Dancers are encouraged to wear clothes that make them feel comfortable, however, dance shoes will be required for rehearsals. Hair must also be worn away from the face. It can be quite distracting to be swiping hair away while dancing.

Also please note, competitions will require makeup to be worn on stage with clean hair and proper costume pieces. We will have instructions on what makeup should be worn and how hair should be styled for each dance.

Solos, Duets, and Trios

Please note that some dancers will be offered the opportunity to perform solos, duets and trios. Dancers who do not participate in these small groups are just as much part of the team and will be treated as such. All dancers develop at many different rates and it is not a critique on any personal level if your dancer is not selected. **Choreography Fees are paid up front and include 4 privates to learn the routine. Refresher hours are billed accordingly.  Choreography routines are the sole property of Marco Island Dance Academy and can only be performed with the studio and their entered competitions only.

Travel and Accommodations

Some competitions will be out of town and require travel and lodging. All dancers will be responsible for their own travel and accommodations. Chaperones will also be needed for away competitions. This can be organized between parents if they wish to share the duties, however please notify MIDA of the arrangements.
