The CDA Mini Competition Team is the gateway of personal growth, confidence and long-term friendships. Mini Competition Team will participate in their regular scheduled combo class and attend one extra practice on Saturdays. Members of this team will perform one or two dances at competition and recital.

The CDA Pre-Junior Competition Team pulls from the previous Mini Team and dancers with experience from regular scheduled combo classes. Dancers will take 3 days of technique classes and will perform at competitions and recital. Pre-Junior Competition Team offers the opportunity to perform solos, duets and trios.

The CDA Elite Competition Team offers dancers the opportunity to perform in hip hop, acro / gym, ballet, tap, contemporary, jazz and more. Members of this team will participate in competitions, recitals, local events and charity performances. Dancers are available to perform with solos, duets, trios at this level

Hip Hop Performance and Competition Team – THE CDA CREW. Dancers interested in being a part of the CDA Crew must also be taking a CDA hip hop class. Dancers must be evaluated in the hip hop class and team rehearsals for a series of classes prior to being accepted to compete on the team. The CDA Crew will help promote diversity within the community by using hip hop dance as its medium. The students will develop a sense of camaraderie with his/her fellow teammate while learning teamwork, responsibility, and hip hop dance


Looking for a dance competition team? Charlotte Dance Alliance offers the opportunity for dancers to audition to become a member of their competition team.   Our team is comprised of dancers, teachers and parents.   We consider this as your child’s sport.  The dancer’s need parent’s support to encourage them & cheer them on.

The mission for our “Company” Competition Dance Team is simple: to provide opportunities for enrichment that go well beyond the art of dancing. We strive to inspire, challenge and provide character building experiences through dance and performance. “Competition” is not just about winning- winning is the least important thing. It is about striving to be the best you can be, and about sharing your passion to do so. Company team is a wonderful experience, but one that also requires a lot of hard work and a serious commitment. All four (4) regional competitions, one (1) national competition and one (2) conventions are mandatory..

Technique & choreography are worked on every week, and it is the dancer’s responsibility to be there to participate actively in each class.  The following classes are required for competition students: ballet, technique, and competition rehearsal classes.

COMPETITION TEAMS are chosen and categorized by age averages and skill. Students are placed where they can grow, be inspired and challenged throughout the season ahead! We offer groups for all ages and levels of dance. The Competition Team offers the more serious and committed dancer more intense training and performance opportunities.

SOLOS, DUETS AND TRIOS are offered to ALL students regardless of age, experience or level! It is our belief that dancers grow so much working on a special number as such, and we offer this to ANY dancer(s) interested.

CHARLOTTE DANCE ALLIANCE DIRECTORS/TEACHERS are enthusiastic and honored to do what they love as a career. We take pride in every student we teach, and feel they are all a reflection of who we are. We strive to instill self worth, high self esteem, team work and good morals in a positive family atmosphere to every child we instruct! We are readily available to discuss your interests and answer any questions you might have regarding this program.

If you are interested in being a member of the CDA Competition team please contact us for additional details. Our Intensives will be held this August 6-9, 2018. The intensives are mandatory for anyone planning on being a part of the team.
