Please consider the following when determining which competition level fits your routine:
Prodigy - Recreational/Beginner dancers who receive
limited weekly studio time and have had little if any, stage time other
than at their annual recital. They have not had the time to master the
technical skill that are required in the competition’s higher levels.
Protege - This intermediate level is for those dancers who may not be considered beginner because of previous dance experience but are training 5 hours or less per week.
Prestige - This level is for advanced dancers who average several hours of technical dance training per week and have strong technical ability. These dancers have significant competition and or stage experience.
