COMPANY “The Crew”
Dance Machines has an
award winning Dance Crew. Each Dance Crew provides a
challenge for our students to be the best that they can be.
It is such an exciting way to build that
self esteem and pride in your dancer.
Dance Crew is focused on
several aspects of dance. Hip Hop, Tap, Jazz, and Modern are
just some of the subjects that will be taught. It travels
the DFW/Texas area and competitions are generally scheduled
in late Winter and Spring. Highly accredited judges will
critique your dances and will sometimes provide an
audio/video review of your dance. Workshops often accompany
the competition and are highly recommended for your benefit.
How many hours per week are we
required to attend?
A minimum of 4
hours is required, however more hours may be offered to your dancer,
depending on the different styles of dance that they may be

Conventions that are offered.

the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The Crew will sometimes travel to San

Are extra practices required?
Sometimes it is
necessary to have an extra practice before a competition. These
times and dates will be given to you in advance, so that you can
plan your day.
Auditions are done
in the classroom setting. Each Director of The Crew is observing
your dancer in class. Invitations to The Crew are based on
recommendations from the teacher. For example: your attendance in
class, the attentiveness you show to the teacher’s instruction, your
drive, style and enthusiasm in the classroom setting.
Do you have more questions?
Each Crew member’s parent/guardian is required to attend a Teacher
Talk with our Directors of the The Crew. This is your opportunity
to meet one on one, and discuss the most important thing…..your
dancer’s endless possibilities in the dance world.
