Dance Team:

Micki's Dance Studio believes that being involved in competitive dance develops positive self-esteem, confidence, accountability, and leadership in dancers. In our program, dancers have the opportunity to perform for large crowds and compete against many other teams from all over the country. Micki's Dance Studio always maintains a high standard of age appropriate routines and uniforms for our dancers. Our goal is not necessarily to take 1st place, but rather we encourage our dancers to do their best and improve from one competition to the next and most of all have fun. Time and time again, our philosophy has made our teams and dancers stand out above the rest.


Parents of students who participate in the Dance Team will need to sign a waiver for permission.
