Philosophy and Expectations

  • The FDS ELITE Competition Team requires hard work, dedication, teamwork, and much more to build a successful group. 

  • This program is designed for our most experienced and advanced dancers ages 8+.​

  • Placement by audition only. 

  • It is a specific program based on ballet, contemporary, jazz, and hip-hop technique.

  • This is the most prestigious placement and has its own set of prerequisites, requirements, and opportunities.

FDS ELITE teams are divided this year into three levels and two styles, each receiving instruction in contemporary and hip hop.


  • Level I: Ages 6-7

  • Level II: Ages 8-9

  • Level III: Ages 10-12

  • Level IV: Ages 13 and up

In each level, a minimum of 8 dancers is required to create an FDS ELITE Competition Team.
