Stone Oak Dance Academy believes that being involved in competitive dance at an early age develops positive self esteem, confidence, accountability, and leadership in young dancers. In our program, dancers have the opportunity to perform for large crowds and compete against many other teams from all over the country. Stone Oak Dance Academy always maintains a high standard of age appropriate routines and costumes for our dancers. Our goal is to encourage our dancers to do their best and improve from one competition to the next and most of all have fun. Time and time again, our philosophy has made our teams and dancers stand out above the rest. For serious students who Love to Dance and want to push themselves to excel in a positive supportive environment, Stone Oak Dance Academy offers opportunities for ages 5 and up. Participation is by Audition/Evaluation Only. All Teams attend a minimum of 2 Regional Competitions each year and 1 National Convention every other year. Individuals may choose to attend more competitions if desired. Each Team Level competes in Team Level Group Competition and the entire team of Mini’s through Seniors will also compete together as a Production Number. These teams may also be called upon to perform for various community events throughout the year. Members may also have the option of participating in Solos, Duets, and Trio numbers.

All Company Members and their parents are required to sign and adhere to a Company Contract.

Team Attendance Policy: Each Team Level must make the commitment to attend the required minimum mandatory classes and a weekly rehearsal. In order for our teams to be successful, it is important that the entire team work together as much as possible.
*If a dancer will be absent from practice, simply send us an email with the reason for absence, in advance to let us know.
*A dancer may have 4 unexcused absences from September—May. Additional missed practices must be made up with a private lesson.  Some more advanced level teams are held to a higher attendance standard.
*Excused absences
 include but are not limited to illness with a medical excuse and school events required for a grade. These should be kept to a minimum.

The competition/performance fee is non-refundable if the dancer is not able to perform.
