Soul Connexion Competitive Dance

Soul Connexion provides performance opportunities in both festival and competitive environments to help our students reach their full potential as dancers. We promote healthy competition, good sportsmanship and the personal development of each of our students. Dance competitions are a rewarding experience and thus require an extra commitment and investment.

We are excited to announce that we launched a Pre Competitive Program in September 2017 and our first season was a huge success! This division of our dance team is ideal for students looking to sample the competitive program without the extra time commitment and investment. It’s a great opportunity to gain performance experience, build confidence, and shine.
