Each dancer with the desire to compete is required to audition regardless of past competition experience.
A dancer who has previously competed is not guaranteed a place on the competition team.
Competition is an opportunity to increase performance skills, to do the best job we can, to show responsibility in practice, commitment, and to form new friendships in working as a team.
Teams participate in an average of 2 competitions per year and 1 workshop.
Come ready for dance ; clothes and shoes (all types), hair tied back. This will be just like a class.
You will have a warm up – stretch out. The instructor may do something across the floor – for example leaps and turns. Then you will learn a combination. Please come to have a GREAT time, enjoy yourself, learn and perform some Fun Dances.
Dancers will be divided / evaluated by age and skill level.
We will watch you dance with others in several different groups
until we find the best match – the best class for you with dancers who have similar dance skills.
Upon conclusion of placement classes, we will email your recommended class/team.
Students who are interested in becoming a part of Pure Motion’s Competitive Team, auditions occur in the month of August.
Many factors determine a student’s placement on the team;
Elements such as experience, technique, performance, coordination, class behavior in addition to the student’s ability to take direction, apply corrections & loyalty.
Pure Motion started competing in 1998. The team is for dedicated students who are advanced and exceed in a specific style of dance, starting from 5 years old and up.
Once a student is chosen to be on the team, the student will go through intensive weekly training and participate in Regional and National Competitions throughout Canada and the United States, as well as performing in Benefit Shows and special events for the community.
PM Competition Team has been very successful and has awarded the school Cash Prizes, Scholarships and Several Gold and Platinum Trophies. As well as Overall, Top, Best Costume, Best Choreography, Dancer of the Year, Most Passionate, Top Model to name a few. Competitors starting at 13yrs old can possibly be selected for our Teacher Training Program.
Competition is not for everyone, but should your child be approached regarding the team, this means that we recognize the talent, potential, and hard work that is displayed by your child. We acknowledge their capabilities and feel that they are not being met as a recreational dancer.
Being on the team involves dedication and commitment from both the students and his/her parents. The dancers spend hours together rehearsing, fundraising and participating in planned events. The teams become very close and friendships blossom throughout the years.
