Excellence at Every Level

A Fine Dance Studio Prep Teams and Companies are comprised of the very best dancers at AFDS. The training is rigorous and designed to create pre-professional dancers who will excel at dance programs in college or post high-school schools of performing arts.


Company and Team placement is by invitation only. Criteria is based on technical skills and overall ability. Commitment to dance, enthusiasm, motivation and team/studio spirit are an absolute prerequisite. If you are interested in being invited to our competition program, please email Miss Abigail. Miss Robin can help design a scehdule of classes for your dancer to prepare him/her for the future opportunity of being on one of our teams/companies.

For the 2019-2020 Season we are proud to announce we will have over 120 dancers join our competition program. Placement is not based solely upon age, it is based on ability and team dynamics. We spend a tremendous amount of time and effort designing each team and considering each dancer as an individual.

Auditions & Invitations

We strongly encourage each dancer spend at least 1 dance season taking the following AFDS classes. Ballet, Technique, Tap, Jazz & Lyrical. Dancers who are currently enrolled in those classes will be preparing for what it’s like to be on one of our well-rounded teams.

If you are from another studio and would like to know more about our competition program, feel free to call (781) 449-4800. All new student auditions will be held in June by appointment only.

Competition dancers are expected to attend all competitions that are assigned by the studio as well as 2 conventions per year. The number of competitions goes up with the age and abilities of the dancers.

Competition dancers are also required to attend our summer intensive in the end of August.
