IGNITE+ is an extension of our current Ignite Competitive Team that allows dancers to expand upon their competitive training potential.

IGNITE+ dancers will receive exclusive access to the following:

  • IGNITE+ dancers will add an additional Pre-professional class that is only available to IGNITE + dancers. Dancers will be able to choose between 3 different Pre-pro classes to register and take weekly. 

  • Dancers in IGNITE+ will also have exclusive access to attend an additional optional weekly class with our Pre-Professional Company.

  • IGNITE+ dancers will receive a one on one Parent/Student/Teacher evaluation to review dancer goals, growth and create a track for the rest of the season.

In addition, IGNITE+ dancers will have the chance to participate in the following optional opportunities (additional charges apply):

  • IGNITE+ dancers will be given the opportunity to audition for a solo, duet or trio to be performed at their scheduled competitions (please see audition criteria below). This opportunity provides your dancer with a one-on-one, 30-minute time slot every other week with an SDW Faculty.
