COMPETITIVE DANCE TEAMS
The Sisters Dance Academy facilitates an opportunity for dancers to be a part of our award-winning, competitive dance teams.
Focus: Contemporary & Jazz
Director/Choreographer: Kayla Williams
HIP HOP SQUAD
Director/Choreographer: Shannon Abero Guerrero
Within both teams there are three age brackets:
- Prep for ages 9-12
- Junior level for dancers ages 12-15
- Senior level for dancers ages 15-18.
Dancers who are at the intermediate to advanced level in Sisters Dance Academy classes and who want competition opportunities are encouraged to audition. Auditions are typically held at the end of each dance year in May or June. Our auditions for the 2022/2023 season have concluded. If you have a dancer that may be interested/eligible to join our dance teams, and you’d like to know more, contact Lonnie at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2022, our teams competed in three regional competitions, attend one regional dance workshop and performed at events all over Central Oregon. See the list of some of our awards below:
We are so very proud of our competitive dancers and their recent accomplishments this spring 2022 at the Energy competition in Vancouver, WA and the Thunderstruck Competition at the Portland Convention Center. At Energy, the Hip Hop Duet by Kamryn Osborne and Mackenzi Reed, placed First in their age/level division AND our studio was awarded the Studio of Excellence Award (for having the most enthusiasm, awesome sportsmanship, and excellence in performance). At Thunderstruck our Sr. Hip Hop Squad came in FIRST place for their group routine “Comin’ in Hot” and received “The Most Entertaining” award out of the whole competition! Both awards are a huge honor!
Under the professional care of coaches Kayla Williams and Shannon Abero Guerrero, dancers work to develop advanced skills, elevated expression and unique and sophisticated choreography.
