Thomas Performing Arts Center Comp Team Showcase

Emery Community Arts Center at the University of Maine at Farmington

The Thomas Performing Arts Dance Center’s 2023 Competition Team will be performing their competition dances in a special Dance Showcase on June 2nd and 3rd. These dancers work hard and compete throughout Maine and New Hampshire against studios from around New England. Competition dance teaches students much more than dance, as they hear direct feedback and correction from judges, from their instructors and others. Working as a team, learning from their mistakes, taking constructive feedback, exhibiting discipline and focus are all valuable skills that these athletes learn throughout their season! Tickets are available from a competition dancer or via email:
