Our 2021-2022 Competitive Team is currently full. Please contact us for an individual assessment.
The Phoenix Rising Dance Studios competitive dance program is rewarding and is valued for its ability to transform young dancers to greatness through dedication to excellence and teamwork.
Dancers engaged in our competitive program take at least four hours of dance each week. Your dancer will become an inspired leader and a proficient dancer taking ballet, contemporary, hip hop, jazz, musical theatre/tap, and tumbling.
You’ll also experience the joy of celebrating your dancer and their wins at dance competitions locally and nationally.
