About the Valley Dance Company

The majority of our students dance at the recreational level, and we offer a wide variety of instructional, technique-focused weekly classes with a professional year-end revue for them.

But for the student who desires something more, our dance studio has a competition dance team that allows for more performance opportunities and training at dance competitions and conventions.

Our goal for them is to have a competitive, positive, and extremely self-driven group of dancers that are very focused on dance and desire to better themselves while being team players.

  • We pride ourselves in developing well-rounded dancers. This past season, our team had jazz, lyrical and contemporary routines all earn overall first-place wins.

  • Our routines also won specialty awards for choreography, technique, stage presence, and entertainment. 

  • Awards are fun, but our main goal is to see growth in all of our dancers on and off the stage. It is our desire to develop work ethic, dedication, and drive in our dancers that will serve them well through their dance careers and carry over into all of their future endeavors.

For students who desire more training and performance opportunities at competitions and conventions, we’d love to have you join our dance family!
