Training with DIS means membership in the International Choreographers Association (ICA), a dance club participating in the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) Dance Division.  We believe partnering with AAU assists us in ensuring dance is not only recognized as a sport but treated as one.

International

FAQ

If I do not take dance classes at DIS can I become a member of ICA?

Yes. AAU Dance is does not have many dance clubs.  For that reason we encourage everyone to take advantage of the competition we offer to become a better dancer.  Solo performers and teams can participate and compete for both recreation and professional development.

What if I don't want to compete and just want to take a class.

The annual $25 studio fee includes your AAU membership. If you choose not to compete in the varied competitive opportunities throughout the year that is ok.  There is no requirement to compete. You are still insured as an athlete while participating in our dance programs.

How long does my insurance coverage last?

Coverage must be renewed annually and is valid for one year.

Is there an age limit on who can participate or compete?

We host competitions for all ages from 3-adult. Everyone who dances with us can compete.

What type of training can I expect?

We are a studio similar to most.  Where competition is involved, all coaches are required to go through a mandatory coaching education and training program.  Our coaching program is a combination of training provided by DIS and Positive Coaching Alliance.
