IGNITE+ is an extension of our current Ignite Competitive Team that allows dancers to expand upon their competitive training potential. Our new IGNITE+ program will provide dancers with more opportunities to train like a pro with our SDW Faculty.  This is the perfect opportunity for dancers who are looking for a new challenge. 

IGNITE+ dancers will receive exclusive access to the following:

  • IGNITE+ dancers will add an additional IGNITE+ only class to their Friday evening schedule with opportunities to learn different styles from different Pre-Professional Company teachers

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

  • IGNITE+ dancers will receive a mid-year, one on one Parent/Student/Teacher evaluation to review dancer goals, growth and create a track for the rest of the season. You will be re-evaluated at the end of the year 

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 to be performed at their scheduled competitions (please see solo audition criteria below). This opportunity provides your dancer with a one-on-one, 30-minute time slot every other week with an SDW Faculty. 

    • Please note that these 30 minute privates take place every other week and will require an additional rehearsal fee due to your solo teacher at each scheduled rehearsal

    • There will be a one time solo choreography fee 

    • Entry fees for one solo at two competitions 

    • Solo costume budget will be set by dancer’s family

  • IGNITE+ dancers will be given the opportunity to participate in master classes when guest choreographers come to the studio (typically on weekends throughout the fall)

    • Master classes are approximately one hour-long classes with an industry professional

  • IGNITE+ dancers will have the chance to participate in a one day convention in the fall

    • Cost and date for convention TBD
