The MFDUSA Competion Team
The Dance USA Superstars are a competition team comprised of dancers as young as 4 and up to the age of 19. For over the past 27 years, the competition team has been competing regionally and nationally. Competition dance has given these dancers confidence, structure and life lessons that they will treasure for the rest of their lives. Being a part of a team gives them focus, dedication, responsibility, lifelong friendships; and most important, how to be a part of something great. These dancers have balanced many hours of classes and rehearsals and have still managed to keep their academics their number one priority. They sacrifice a lot of their time to be dedicated to this team and the art of dance. Not only do these talented dancers have the opportunity to study with famous teachers and choreographers, they perform at multiple venues besides competing. Every year they surpassed what I ever could have thought. Between High scores, best choreography & invitations to the World Dance Championships every year. I could not ask for more! Being such committed dancers, they also participate in various events like the annual “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer”, as one of our biggest fundraiser iDance4aCURE, a 12 hour dance marathon to battle pediatric cancer. To date over $80,000 has been raised by our studio from all these fundraisers. This year alone we raised $40,000 how awesome is that?!
