There are several options for dancers. Each team has different requirements for time commitment and training.

If you maintain regular class attendance, love to dance, and work hard in your dance classes, AIM Dance Force is for you! AIM Dance Force is great for young dancers looking to perform more often and further their studies or for those considering studying dance and performing arts in college.
Are there auditions for AIM Dance Force?
There are not auditions for AIM Dance Force. However, there is an application that will be considered along with the dancer’s behavior in class in order to determine the dancer’s technique, potential, commitment level, enthusiasm, and attitude. Team members are placed in numbers based on ability and technique, not just age or class level. Dancers are placed together in groups/duets/trios that the instructors feel will work the best together in rehearsal and performance. The goal is to place members in dances that will help build their self-esteem, challenge them and help them grow.

How much does it cost to be a part of AIM Dance Force?
Any kind of intense instruction or team is a larger financial commitment than basic classes. We aim to offer the most valuable experiences to each dancer in AIM Dance Force. Being a part of the AIM Dance Force includes additional costs for choreography & lessons, costumes, and competition entry fees. All team members will compete in a minimum of two out-of-town competitions, so families will need to consider travel expenses (fuel, hotel, etc.) as well. Additionally, all team members are required to have an ADF uniform, competition jewelry, and Balera tights.
