Starfeet Performance Team
Our Performance Teams perform under the name StarFeet Academy. As of the 2019-20 season Vivette's Dance Studio has decided to pull away from competition. Dance is a performing art, not a competitive sport. Baton, Gymnastics and Ice Skating are sports that have competition as their sole purpose. Dance does not. I have been involved with competition for 35+ years. I've seen our dancers work so hard and improve a great deal from the extra practice and performance opportunities. I've also seen increasing sexualization of dancers down to the very young child and I don't like it. It gets harder and harder to maintain standards when booty shaking is rewarded over age appropriate choreography. I believe that I can give dancers the extra practice and performance time without parents spending a fortune on entrance fees.
Dancers will be able to schedule solo's, duets, or trio's outside of their class time if they wish. We will perform. We will just not compete.
Our older dancers wished to continue competing and to be a part of a larger group. With my blessing and love they have moved on to a friends studio as I concentrate on the littles and middles and performances.
