Designing an exciting and creative competition program for your child is very important to Havilah Dance Company. Our goals are to continue to provide excellence in dance training, as well as to establish an environment that encourages teamwork, dedication, discipline, and confidence. We strive to constantly grow our professional and talented instructors as they guide each student on their journey through the world of dance and theatre.
We look to our parents as partners in our program, and your input is valuable and essential to the success of our students. At this time of the year, our staff is involved in planning and preparing for the upcoming season. Our goal is to produce a program where each dancer is offered challenging classes for their unique skill level, which will allow every student to reach their full potential.
Our studio is a family environment, and we hope to provide a program with which you will be proud to be associated, and one where you can trust that your child will receive our very best as we share our love of dance! Our pledge will continue to be excellence in dance training with high moral standards.

We offer the following Competitive Company Team opportunities [based on enrollment each year]:
If selected for 2021-2022 HDC Company Team Membership, each dancer will be required to perform in the ‘Class Dance(s)’ for their level. Class dances are the routines that dancers participate in with the team that they are selected for, and rehearsals occur during weekly class times. These routines and rehearsals are included in the price of tuition and there are no extra choreography fees (unless the piece is being set by an outside choreographer; but this is rare for class routines). For 2021-2022, requirements are *tentatively* as follows:
For total number of routines my dancer can participate in (this information is not due until the week of Intensives, you will be sent a form to fill out if you are attending HDC’s Summer Intensive):
*We use this number as a guide when selecting students for our extra Large & Small groups; invites for which will be emailed out in September.
*These extra routines may require choreography and/or a supplemental prop free, and will require costume and entry fee(s). They will also have additional rehearsal time slots usually on the weekends.
*Please note that in order to participate in a small group, your student must participate in at least ONE of the large groups they have been chosen for.
A note on COVID-19: We plan to approach the upcoming season with caution, thoughtfulness, and preparation. Although our plans are subject to change based on the pandemic, we believe our current approach is sustainable through this upcoming season. We will keep a watchful eye on any new developments and advice from medical professionals. If the situation requires, we are also prepared to incorporate new ideas and concepts, and virtual alternatives to provide the same level of training through these adjusted means. We ask for flexibility from team member parents as we navigate new territory together with the common goal to create a sense of normalcy, stability and inspiration for our children.
