Having come from a father who was a 3-war vet in the military, I strongly feel that hard work, discipline, respect and teamwork creates success in and out of the dance studio.

Dance Academy USA Production Company the renowned San Jose dance school’s premier competition team, reminds the entire Bay Area dance community that auditions to join the team will be held this Saturday, April 6th and Sunday, April 7th.

The Dance Academy USA Production Company (DAUPC) is an accelerated training program for those students who want additional performance opportunities. Dancers are required to take additional performance and technique classes and membership invitations are offered on an audition-only basis.

DAUPC has participated in countless dance competitions in the past and, in nearly each and every case, they have returned home with dozens of top awards.

Dance Academy USA's Competition Team was established in 1991, a year after the opening of the studio. “My vision was not just to have a competition team, but to provide much more for the dancers than dance.” said DAU Co-founder, Jane Carter. “This is why the dance team is named ‘Production Company,’ because it is not just about dance.” Her goal was to create an atmosphere where dancers are able to be challenged, receiving the best technique in a nurturing and encouraging environment. “Having come from a father who was a 3-war vet in the military, I strongly feel that hard work, discipline, respect and teamwork creates success in and out of the dance studio.”
