Poquoson Dance Academy

We now have FOUR dance companies.  Kinetic Energy Dance Company, includes 4 age groups, Petite Company (ages 5-6), Junior Company (ages 7-11), Teen Company (ages 12-14), and Senior Company (ages 14+).    Our Mini and Petite Companies perform a jazz piece and the Junior and Senior Companies perform jazz, lyrical and character dances.  The entire Company also performs a dance, either jazz or lyrical, at competitions and our recital. This year's whole company dance is under the direction of Abby Topping and Laura Brady.  Our Senior Company also performs a contemporary dance under the direction of Abby Topping and Laura Brady. Petite Companies are under the direction of Molly Firth.  Teen and Senior Company under the direction of Shannon Pohlman.

The Kinetic Energy Dance Company has competed at several competitions over the past 8 years.  We have received overall high scores, Sportsmanship Awards and the Director’s Award.  Many members of the dance company performed on a Royal Caribbean cruise to Bermuda in August 2011.  We recently traveled to Myrtle Beach to compete in the Star Talent's National Competition for receiving a choreography award for Hallelujah, under the direction of Abby Topping.

Please let your dance teacher know if you’re interested in trying out for the dance company.
