Do you have what it takes?
IMPACT Dance team is an elite group of dancers who are not only talented, but also great role models for DWK and the community. DWK team dancers participate in several events throughout the year including competitions, fundraising and performances.
Dance competitions are a major activity in the dance world. They offer stage experience, a fun and rewarding way to show one’s hard work, education by observing other students from other areas, friendship camaraderie and self-confidence.
DWK offers team classes to students who desire to be performers and are motivated to do his/her best. Students must also demonstrate a good attitude toward correction, good attendance, be punctual, are serious dancers and have a healthy attitude toward being a team dancer as well as other teammates.
To be on any IMPACT team is a privilege. Therefore, admission to these classes is by invitation only. Once in a group, a student does not necessarily remain in that particular group for his/her schooling. A student moves at his/her own rate of development determined by DWK’s expert instructors. Students in this program are exposed to all disciplines of dance. Each student is required to take ballet, tap and jazz technique class in addition to their team class.
Teams are committed to approximately 3-4 mandatory competitions and conventions each year. These events take place on the weekends and due to the specific scheduling of each event, the entire event weekend must be reserved on your calendar, as DWK will not know the specific performance time until a few days before the event. If you cannot commit to the rules and regulations as well as attendance in class, then being a company dancer is not for you.
