The Tap Team is an elite group of tappers who train on our site and perform and compete locally. Dancers are selected by on-site audition.

Team members are required to have a minimum of 3 years of tap training and proven to have advanced tap skills.  In addition, we are looking for strong performers.  Previous competition experience is a plus, but not mandatory.

The Competition Team started 3 years ago in response to our talented studio class tappers.  SA Studios wanted to offer an opportunity to expose these tappers to new experiences that would take them to the next level.

The 9 month Team season runs from end of August- mid May.  A full season commitment is required. Team dancers must be enrolled and regularly attend both semesters of Tap Technique class (enrollment open on July 22 HERE) and Competition Rehearsal sessions.  They are also required to attend selected Competitions (3), Conventions (1), Performances (2-3), meetings (1-2).  All dates will be revealed and discussed at the Team meeting in the beginning of the season.

Team dancers are encouraged to take additional SA Studios classes that are offered on-site. In addition, they are welcome to train elsewhere as long as it doe not interfere with their SA Studios Tap Competition obligation.  It is important that Team dancers are not allowed to compete during the season with another studio.


Registration is now closed. Please email kelly@startingarts.com if you are interested in auditioning on the 3rd.
