What is the Competitive Squad?

The Competitive Squad is being formed to allow dedicated and talented students to represent at dance competitions both nationally and internationally and to start offering competitive and professional pathways for our students. We are looking for soloists, duets, trios and groups to represent us in Jazz, Lyrical, Acrobatics, Hip Hop & Contemporary. We are very proud of the talent and passion our students have and are very excited about the step up that the Competitive Squad will bring to This will be an amazing opportunity for our students to represent their country and company, as well as creating a professional name for themselves. Students will learn focus, discipline and commitment as well as a high level of dance training. Entry is by audition/invitation.

How is Comp Squad different to Elite Troupes?

The difference between the Comp Squad and Elite Troupes is the commitment. Elite train on Saturdays for 1.5 hours and we recommend only that they take other classes to add to their training. The Comp Squad trains minimum 6 compulsorary hours per week with the expectation that they can not miss trainings.

What are our 2019 Competitions?

This year we aim to compete in Auckland NZ and Melbourne Australia. We have outlined ONE competition in Auckland and ONE in Melbourne for 2019.

14th September

Athlete Agreement

Both athletes and parents must understand that this troupe will require more training, dedication and determination than any of our other classes. They will need to train up to 3-4 times a week at least, bearing in mind that serious competitors are usually training 7 days a week. This will be a huge step up in terms of time and cost and each athlete and parent will need to be aware and supportive of this fact. The Comp Squad will represent PFORM in the competition space both nationally and internationally so all behavior must be respectful of that fact, they will not only be representing the company when travelling but themselves and their country. Most entering this Squad will be aspiring to make a career out of this. Our job is to put them in the best possible position for them to do so. 

How much does the Comp Squad cost?

The cost will be $500 per term for the remainder of the year so Terms 2, 3 and 4.
