The Sawyer Dance Troupe
The Sawyer Dance Troupe competes at regional and national dance competitions throughout the year, hosts guest artist workshops, and represents the Sawyer Dance Academy by performing at community-wide events. Dancers in this program are extremely dedicated to the art of dance, attend classes and rehearsals several times a week, and practice outside of rehearsal times as well.
This audition-only group is open to any area dancer 9 years of age and up who has had at least 2 years of dance training. Once chosen for the group, members must be enrolled in a dance class, either at the Sawyer Dance Academy or at their home studio, throughout the school year. Our dancers compete in a variety of techniques including contemporary ballet, jazz, tap, modern, lyrical, musical theatre, and clogging.
