Above the Barre competitive team is an elite team of dancers from the Quad Cities that represents our studio beautifully.

We have teams of all ages including:


Performing Group 
4-7 year-olds, meeting one day per week, but participating in additional performances like Festival of Trees and one spring competition

Youth Group
5-8 year-olds, meeting one day per week but also having some additional weekend rehearsal times. This group joins the larger team for 3-4 competitions per year in addition to other performances.

Home Team 
For our dancers 7 and older that would like to compete but are not quite ready for the traveling commitment of the higher teams. These dancers are involved in all performances and competitions that happen in the QCA.

Travel Team 
For our dancers 7 and older that have been competing with our team at least a year or have a special invite from the studio director. This team travels to places near and far and has the opportunity to work with world renowned teachers and choreographers.

Elite Team
This team encompasses our students who have spent their lives dancing and continue to amaze us every day. They travel as a team and are invited to represent ATB in huge events such as the Festival of Trees Parade and other community events.
