Learn all about the competitive dance team, Just Dance! Company, at Charleston Dance Center.

WHO WE ARE

A Nationally Awarded Competitive Dance Team

Our dancers, age 5 to 18, compete across the country at regional and national competitions and conventions. This is the highest level of training, performing, and competing offered at Charleston Dance Center and among the highest of dance companies in Charleston. 

Our Dance Teams: Minis, Petites, Juniors, and Seniors

Through an Audition process, Just Dancers have earned their spots on the prestigious competition team.

Company dancer requirements are specific to their level placement for the season. Requirements increase with the dancer’s age and ability levels. Currently, we have four Just Dance! Company Teams:

Mini Team

With the average age typically being 8-years-old, the Mini team dancers range between 6 and 10-years-old. While a dancer’s age is just one factor that is considered for team placement, height, ability, maturity, team composition and many other factors are also considered.

Petite Team

The Just Dance! petite company is selected through audition and has an average age of 10 years old. Petite company dancers are usually 8-12 years old, but a dancer’s age is just one factor that is considered for team placement. Height, ability, maturity, team composition and many other factors are also considered.

Junior Team

The Just Dance! junior company has an average age of 12 years old. Junior company dancers are usually 10-14 years old, but a dancer’s age is just one factor that is considered for team placement. Height, ability, maturity, team composition and many other factors are also considered.

Senior Team

The Just Dance! senior company has an average age of 14 years old. Senior company dancers are usually 13-17 years old, but a dancer’s age is just one factor that is considered for team placement. Height, ability, maturity, team composition and many other factors are also considered.

Just Dance! Company Team Requirements & Expectations

Competitive dance requires the highest level of commitment from both the dancer and the parent, so company dancers may have to choose dance as a priority over other extracurricular activities. Just Dance! company members are not allowed to enroll in dance classes at any other studio or participate in dance events outside of school and Charleston Dance Center without permission from Just Dance! Company directors.
