You are invited to be a part of our 5th annual open company & apprentice company competition piece! Every year we bring one piece to our last competition of the season that features our apprentice company and any open company member that would like to participate. Participating in the process of rehearsing for competition and performing at competition is an enriching experience that teaches the importance of discipline and team work. Rehearsals start on March 18th for our performance the weekend of May 10th-12th. Sign up below


WATCH PRIOR Year's performances

We have a history of doing well with this big piece at competition. Last year, we received 2nd overall and in prior years we took home 1st overalls.



Personal Growth

Following through with commitments is one of the most important things you can teach your child. Through this process of setting a competition piece, there will be ups and downs, fun days and "boring" days. You are never too young to learn how to navigate your feelings and reap the rewards of personal accomplishment and growth at the end of this process.


Team Work

At WEAVE, we are a TEAM! Learning how to work as a group is another valuable life lesson that carries far beyond dance. In rehearsals dancers will be encouraged to lift each other up, hold each other accountable and vibe as one while dancing on stage!


Agents of Change

There are things in the dance competition world that we do and don't like. Part of what we don't like is the way that sometimes dancers are clothed (or lack thereof), the music they are dancing to, and the way they are dancing... basically, age appropriate behavior has been thrown out the window! At WEAVE you will NEVER see this from our dancers. When your dancer is competing at WEAVE, you can be proud that they are representing a philosophy that young dancers can move and be clothed appropriately AND STILL score high and earn the judges' respect. Let's be agents of change in the world of competition dance!

Details & Sign Up

WEAVE will be bringing an open level competition piece to Turn It Up Dance Competition at the Chattanooga Convention Center when they are in town during the weekend of May 10th-12th. This piece will only be performed on one of those dates (we don't know the schedule yet, keep reading more mroe details on scheduling.)

You/your dancer can participate in this piece as long as they are an open company member and at least in Kindergarten. Factors such as how long one has been dancing or what styles one is trained in is not contingent on one participating. WEAVing together dancers of all levels is what we do best ;)

WEAVE will be setting an open piece that will incorporate hip hop, contemporary-funk, jazz and acro movements.

Competition Weekend (May 10th-12th) 

We will not know their exact performance time until at least one week prior to the event. This is extremely common amongst competitions as they wait for all their registrations to come in before releasing the schedule. They will only perform the piece once and then will be required to stay for the award ceremony, and then will be released. This will take place all on ONE DAY.. we just don't know which day that is yet. From past experiences, we can say that they will most likely schedule our performance on Saturday or Sunday, but be prepared for anything! Keep your schedule flexible the entire weekend.
