The LDA Elite Program is a competitive soloist and team dance program designed for the serious LDA dancer who is highly motivated in dance. The program serves to provide personalized training and performance opportunities to further enhance the growth of each participant’s dance form and artistry. Invited participants are in the mini, junior, teen and soloist age brackets. Participation is based on an application and audition process. Although all dancers are welcome to apply not all applicants are accepted.
The LDA Elite Mission
The Elite program's focus is to further challenge and support dancers who already perform at a technically advanced level for their age category and to those who show potential towards soloist level choreography and performance in ballet, lyrical, contemporary and/or jazz. Along with technical proficiency, dancers selected for participation as either a soloist or apprentice will serve as representatives of the LDA program and must commit to their required technique classes and genres.
LDA Elite prides itself on individualized training focused on each dancer’s specific needs. All decisions made by the Director and Coaches are for the overall health and advancement of the Elite program as a whole - not towards any one individual member’s personal agenda or promotion. Dancers and Parents must be willing to trust their Director and Coaches to make the most sound training decisions and competitive placements for their soloist. Elite program members must have exemplary class behavior, attendance, and attitude and are asked to represent LDA in a positive light inside and outside of the studio at all times.
