The North County DanceArts’ Competition Team is an award winning competitive dance team that allows the dancer who wishes to explore the world of competitive dance and performance, with more emphasis on performance and personal growth to do so. North County DanceArts’ philosophy is directed toward providing a family-oriented environment whereby a dancer is encouraged to gain performance experience in various genres of dance, build personal integrity, confidence, work ethic and grow in relationships with other dancers of similar desire.
The North County DanceArts’ Competition Team at this time offers an Exhibition (Upper level dancers) and Ensemble (lower level dancers) groups.
