Synergy Dance Company (SDC) is designed to combine a passion for education, performance and competition to create well-rounded dancers that have a love for dance. This company was formed in 2006 and began with 24 dancers and has grown to include 7 levels and over 70 members.
In addition to our SDC program we also offer a more competitive, elite group called our Xtreme team. These students are committed to not only attend their regular class but also twice monthly extra master classes, rehearsals or competitions.

Synergy Dance Company is interested in dancers who exhibit a strong work ethic, great attitude and love for dance. Competition is an important part of a dancer’s education but we balance that with educational opportunities and feel that there is more to a dancer’s training than competing. Our SDC team attends one or two conventions per year and 2 group competitions. Specific technique classes are devoted to teaching our dancers more than just a routine and we take pride in offering a variety of experiences to our team. We are devoted to developing the best performers possible while instilling qualities and values that will last a lifetime. Our Synergy staff is personally involved. We love our students and we are determined to teach our dancers positive sportsmanship, trust and self-esteem.
Dancers are required to attend classes twice per week with separate classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz and technique. In addition we also offer modern, lyrical, contemporary, drill team, acro dance and hip hop dance styles to our dancers through extra classes, guest teachers and master classes. We begin accepting dancers into our SDC program at age 6 with a minimum of two years dance instruction. All company classes are graded on a technical level from 1-7. All class placement is determined by the dancer’s ability to meet the outlined skills assessed for each level. Dancers placed inappropriately are at a risk for injury, so age and strength are carefully considered when Ms. Sherrie and staff decide placement collectively. Dancers undergo a twice yearly personal evaluation by Ms. Sherrie where their progress is accessed and recommendations are made.
SDC members continue their training in the summer by participating in National competitions and traveling to New York and LA. Our next summer trip in 2017, will be to New York City where the dancers will train at Broadway Dance Center, Steps on Broadway and Pearl Studios.
