The Dance Academy USA Production Company 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. All DAUPC members must re-audition every year, as the team is highly competitive, with slots available only for those that want to take their game to the next level. 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.
Competition Team Manager, Loretta Carter, said "We’re headed to nationals on the heels of so many impressive victories at various dance competitions this year. It’s a testament to our teams’ hard work, dedication, and commitment to excellence. They’re going to lay it all out on the stage – technique, teamwork, showmanship, and passion for dance. We couldn’t be prouder!"
