JAZZ DRILL TEAM
Our Jazz Drill Team is a group of dancers beginning their company experience with DWDA. These dancers train in Jazz and Ballet, as well as many of our other offered disciplines of dance. They perform in parades and other performances throughout the valley to bring energy, joy, and excitement to the local crowds.
Our Performing Company has 5 different age/ability levels and is a group of experienced dancers who represent DWDA at many local community events throughout the year. Our Performing Company dancers love to entertain, and spread the smiles and good times everywhere they go! Company members perform at various local functions, including “Christmas in the Park” in Litchfield Park, the Holiday Boutique in Buckeye and at a local assisted living facility around the holidays. In addition to these events, this group also performs the opening and closing production routines in our annual spring recitals.
The award winning DWDA Elite Competition Team trains and competes in many styles of dance on both a regional and national level. The team is comprised of a group of serious and dedicated dancers from throughout the West Valley ranging in age from seven to eighteen years old. Year after year, this Elite Team continues to win high point and top placement awards, as well as numerous judges’ choice awards for technique, showmanship, and choreography. In July of 2016, among many other incredible awards, the Elite Competition team took home the coveted National Grand Slam Champion award from Encore Nationals in Las Vegas!
