Performance Team - Frequently Asked Questions
For further information regarding our Performance Team, please contact the studio at (831) 471-8483.

My child hasn’t taken dance lessons before, but she loves to be in front of a crowd! Is the Performance Team going to be too challenging for her?

The Wings School of Dance Performance Team is designed to highlight dancers of different abilities. Team members will support one another and learn how to work together.

Can I observe dance team classes at the studio?
All dance team classes are closed rehearsals. However, team members perform frequently throughout the year, so friends and family will have a number of opportunities to watch them light up the stage!

What is a dance convention?
A dance convention is a traveling dance workshop that features celebrity dancers and choreographers. Students will take a variety of classes usually in a span of 2-3 days. This is a great way for dancers to be exposed to new styles and to learn from professional dancers and choreographers they’ve seen on “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Dancing with the Stars”. A challenging, rewarding, inspiring event for all! Dancers will be placed according to age and skill level.

Can I observe convention classes?
Yes! All Performance Team members must be accompanied by an adult at dance conventions. Observer bands can be purchased for $40.00 at the studio prior to the convention or on the day of the event.

Are travel costs included in event fees?
Travel costs are not included in event fees or Performance Team tuition.

Why does my child need to wear makeup at performance events?
To avoid a washed-out look, dancers need to wear makeup to counterbalance stage/performance lighting. Team members will wear light makeup applications for day performances and stage makeup for theatrical and evening performances.
