ADC Elite Competition Team

ADC Elite is a team of the most dedicated and passionate young dancers willing to push themselves to the max each and every week. This intensive program provides serious dancers with accelerated training, cutting edge hip hop and jazz choreography, and exposure to the world of professional dance through regional competitions and community performances. Elite team training focuses on strength, conditioning, technical precision, showmanship, artistry, and the execution of choreography. Each semester includes at least one regional dance competition.

This class is by audition only. Please call 212-717-0703 to schedule an audition.

Returning Elite Team members do not need to re-audition to register, but may be asked to join the placement audition before the semester begins to determine which team they will be competing with. Please hold September 7th for a possible placement audition.
