Here at Thrive Competition Team, we invite you to learn the artistry of dance, competition, performance, team work, adaptability, expression and joy through our welcoming environment of competition dance team. Our goal is to provide a place for everyone to experience this unique and rewarding side of dance where each dancer will thrive. Whether you are just starting out, or a seasoned verteran, you will feel welcomed and engaged on this supportive and challenging team. Most importantly here at Children’s Dance Theater we promote a healthy approach physically and mentally to dance education and training with the hopes of instilling joy and self worth. Children’s Dance Theater is a non discrimination studio.


Debut Team is a great place for dancers to begin their competitive journey. There are no prior requirements to join this team and have room to evolve as your training grows. Debut has less time and financial commitment involved. This team is not selective and is a guaranteed placement.



Elite Team is for dancers with 3-4 years competitive/training experience and are ready for a challenge in artistry and skill level. This team has a larger financial and time commitment, you must study in the conservatory program of CDT to be eligable for Elite. The elite team is a selective process with no guarantee on placement.
