The Seacoast Dancers

The Seacoast Dancers is a pre-professional dance team that was formed to provide young aspiring students with more performing opportunities and an opportunity to take their dance training to the next level. The team consists of dancers with similar interests who come together to learn, rehearse, and perform in a supportive and fun environment. These dancers have a passion for dance, and the rewards that they receive from being a member are invaluable. The team becomes a second family to them, building friendships and memories that last a lifetime. It also provides them with opportunities to associate with dancers from all over the world, study with renowned teachers and choreographers, and travel with their passion and talent for dance.

The Seacoast Dancers have been consistently recognized by reputable individuals and groups in the competitive dance industry for their outstanding technique, performance, choreography, professionalism, and team-work. The team participates in approximately 4 competitions and 1 convention on weekends throughout the season, most of them ranging in the peak competitive time from January to late April. Having achieved outstanding performances and accolades throughout the year at regional competitions, the Seacoast Dancers move on to compete in one national competition in the Summer.
