At The Dance Authority, my staff and I pride ourselves on providing a quality dance education in a loving family environment. We offer a variety of competitive programs for those looking to expand their dance knowledge through challenging technique classes, those seeking to fulfill their love for the stage, and those who want to be a part of a true team. I am excited to watch our dancers continue to grow and pursue doing what brings them joy. Being a member of TDA’s Competition Team is an honor and every dancer is key to completing our team puzzle. We hold a high standard for personal excellence both in and out of the studio.The present goal of any competitive sport is to win; however, I do not take lightly the long-term influence that TDA staff and peers will have on your dancers and the growth they will experience not only as dancers, but as they develop from young children to young adults. My ultimate goal is to nurture individuals that are independent thinkers, clear communicators, and confident to venture out into their next stage of life. – Darci Bray, Owner/Director
BITTY – COMPETITIVE DANCE TEAM
Our Bitty program is for our tiniest dancers who love dance and want more of it! These dancers have the desire to be just like the “big girls.” They are excited to add a variety of classes to their dance schedule and to dance on the big stage more than the year-end Revue. The Bitty team is designed to give our youngest dancers a taste of Company-style classes under the guidance of caring and energetic instructors. They may have the opportunity to perform at various community events, compete at local competitions in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area, with the option to compete regionally and nationally, and perform in our year-end Revue.
MINI/ PETITE – COMPETITIVE DANCE TEAMS
Our Mini and Petite programs are designed as a stepping-stone for our Academy and Company programs. They have a strong desire for growth and are excited to add a variety of classes to their dance schedule while dancing on stage more than the year-end Revue. They are introduced to the fun, yet challenging level-based Company classes and may have the opportunity to perform at various community events, compete at local, regional, and national competitions, and perform in our year-end Revue.
ACADEMY – COMPETITIVE DANCE TEAM
Our Academy program is for dancers who have the desire to perform more than the year-end Revue but are not interested in the full commitment of Company; or are dancers that are new to the competitive dance world and/or require additional training before auditioning for our Company team. Academy dancers are introduced to fun, yet challenging Company-style classes, compete at local competitions in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area, and perform in our year-end Revue.
COMPANY – COMPETITIVE DANCE TEAM
Company is our highly accredited competitive team and comprises our most dedicated and talented dancers. These dancers train by taking challenging, level-based technique classes while introducing a variety of styles to expand each dancer’s versatility. Company dancers may have the opportunity to perform at various community events, compete at local, regional, and national competitions, and perform in our year-end Revue.
