Want To Join Our Dance Team?
Competitive dance is a team building program done Pure Energy style. Our goal is to promote dance as a unique, fun loving team experience that will last all dancers a lifetime! Is it hard? Is it dedication? Is it commitment? The answer is yes! For our team to be successful everyone must be on the same page. Like all results, to find satisfaction you must climb the mountain.
Being a part of the competitive team is a great overall experience for the dancers. They are challenged to work to their potential in a fun and encouraging atmosphere.

Pure Energy is hosting it’s 2019-20 Dance Company Auditions! We encourage, and recommend any dancer who is looking for a new experience, a team atmosphere and a push in dance to come out to this event! Pure Energy offers 3 different levels of competition to fit all needs. We will begin the class with a warm up, combo and progressions down the room. The class will end inviting students to showcase their own work, or past choreography. The class is a fun way to introduce dancers to a new world of dance!
Will everyone make it? No, depending on their confidence level, some dancers are not ready for competing, this just gives them a goal to focus on for the following year. In this case we pay close attention to this dancer throughout the next season to see their growth and development.
