Our Soloists and Comp Teams
The excitement from our competition days is just electric. Our wonderful soloists and troupe teams have early starts and late finishes, bringing their fire and passion to every practice. They learn much more than just dance steps, and it's not all about the bling. They develop a strong team working ethos, picking each other up when the results don't go the way they expect and celebrating each other's accomplishments when they do. They learn skills to last a lifetime and make the most precious friendships and memories.
Their amazing parents and carers fully support them. They bring the team spirit from the audience, packing their dancers off with endless pack lunches, correct costumes and immaculate hair and make-up, dropping them off on time and waiting with anticipation for those all-important results. Always willing to help with the fundraising for entities and transport a prop or two, even as far as Blackpool Winter Gardens and Haven Golden Sands.
Those lucky enough become our volunteer chaperones who are always on hand with spare bobby pins and can quick change a whole team in a blink of an eye. They may get to watch from the wings but seeing how everything works and the camaraderie of our teams makes them come back for more each competition day.
Add in choreography and tricks that never fail to astound and amaze and the hidden talents of our teacher's music-mixing skills with a touch of humour and bags of creativity. Award-winning costumes from Miss Vicky's amazing mum Carol set the stage just right.
It's a heady mix of magic that make our soloists and team members so very lucky to have these opportunities to be part of such a strong TVA family.
