For the past five seasons, our Shining Stars students have enjoyed new experiences, competition success, improved skills and fun activities. Our Shining Stars Performing Groups offer advanced dancers a higher level of training as well as additional performing opportunities. These programs are open to dancers ages 9-18.
If accepted, dancers must attend SDA Summer Intensives. Sr. Shining Stars are also required to take a minimum of 4 group classes including Ballet, Jazz, Modern and Contemporary throughout the dance season. The Shining Stars rehearse weekly one weeknight and monthly on Saturdays. Our senior group attends approximately 4 regional workshops/conventions and 3 competitions throughout the season. They may also perform at local nursing homes, charity benefits and community events.
