5678 Competition

Over the March 23, 24 & 25 Weekend, Claire, Veronica, Sydney, Hazel, Alexane and Eva all attended the 5678 Competition in Jasper, Alberta.  We're very proud of all of them; for the professionalism and honesty with which they represented Red Deer and Strive, as well as their sport of Dance; and for all the hard work they have put in.  They met new dancers, choreographers, Judges and more. They got to see a performance of Cirque Du Soleil Corteo, as well as meet some of the performers from Cirque and participate in Workshops with them. 

We have a new Competition Care Plan

Exciting news just in time for competition season!  Are you new to Strive and have questions about preparing for competition season?  Are you new to the dance competition world and wondering how you can make the competition season run smoothly for you and your dancer?  Are you a seasoned dance family and would like to utilize resources like a Costume Chart or suggestions for packing the snack bag for your dancer?
