3The Competitive Program at Shift Dance Academy is available for students looking to take their dancing to the next level. Competitive classes offer a greater challenge and require more dedication than a recreational class; and students absolutely love it!

Our competitive classes require that each student attend a minimum of two ballet classes each week to maintain their technique and continue their development of dance fundamentals.

Performance Opportunities

Each competitive class will be invited to compete in 3 different dance competitions over the course of the year, and in some cases more. These groups may also be asked to perform at various community events such as West Van Days, the Rogers Santa Claus Parade, etc.

Competitive classes include:

  • Jazz
  • Lyrical
  • Tap
  • Hip Hop
  • Ballet
  • Contemporary
  • Musical Theatre
  • Stage
  • Acro
  • Pointe
