Registration is now OPEN for our 2017-2018 TEAM and will remain open until September 3, 2017 at 5pm or until all TEAM spots are filled, whichever comes first.

Meet the 2016-2017 TEAM here!
What is Hip-Hop T.E.A.M.?
T.E.A.M. stands for “Together Everyone Achieves More.” At eMotion we value three things: Kindness, Respect, and Teamwork. These three principles are at the core of all we do, how we make decisions, how we treat others and how we operate to thrive. If you value the same things and you love to dance, we encourage you to join our TEAM and become a part of the eMotion family.
What does T.E.A.M. do?
The T.E.A.M.s meet once a week for class/rehearsal. They learn various routines to be performed at different events. In the past, T.E.A.M.s have attended or performed at club events, community events, 5Ks, competitions, flash mobs, workshops, etc. They also help get the community involved in dancing.
Who is T.E.A.M. for?
Kids T.E.A.M. – Ages 8-12
Teen T.E.A.M Elevation – Ages 13-18
Adult T.E.A.M. Elevation – Ages 19 and up*
(NEW!) Adult Innovation T.E.A.M. – Ages 19 and up (teens age 14-18 are allowed to join with permission)
*(Adult T.E.A.M. has had dancers up to age 64 and an overall average age of 37.)
T.E.A.M. is for people who are passionate about dance, who are kind and respectful to others and who value the concept of teamwork.
No hip-hop dance experience is required to join the Kids T.E.A.M. eMotion prides itself on being THE place to teach hip-hop dance step-by-step and will get you or your child feeling confident in just a few months. Taking our summer classes is a great place to start to learn how to dance and see what we’re all about.
For the Teen and Adult Elevation T.E.A.M. we are looking for people with 2 or more years of dance experience. This class moves at a much faster pace and is for those who are ready to elevate their dancing after having gained the foundational movements.
Innovation TEAM is for all levels of dancers and has a focus on creating a variety of work through collaboration with other forms of art including live music, film, and fine arts.
*If you’re not sure you have enough experience, please email Keri to chat more or attend a summer class to see how we can build up your skills to get you to be a part of our T.E.A.M.s.
What is the commitment?
T.E.A.M. is a 10 month program from September – June. In January we also allow more people to join for any available spots left. Based on which TEAM you choose or for some who can and would like to do both with permission from Keri, each has the following commitments:
Kid and Innovation (70% class/event commitment)
Teen and Adult Elevation (85% class/event commitment)
T.E.A.M. is a commitment and although everyone will miss some classes, we do ask that you commit to at least 70% of the scheduled classes for Kids and Innovation and 85% of the classes for Elevation. The amount of routines and events you want to commit to is up to you, but a decision on if you will be doing them or not must be decided early on. Events and performance days and times vary.
What are you looking for in dancers?
* Is the dancer focused and paying attention?
* Does the dancer show respect and kindness to the instructor and listen?
* Does the dancer show respect and kindness towards the other students?
* Does the dancer have a genuine interest and passion for dance?
* Can the dancer (and the parent if necessary for attending TEAM) commit to the financial requirements and to coming on a fairly consistent basis?
If you’ve answered “no” to any of these questions, then T.E.A.M. may not be right for you at this time.
Where are the T.E.A.M. practices and events held?
All T.E.A.M. programming and workshops are currently held at the Conservatory Ballet located at 2254 Hunters Woods Plaza Road, Suite L, Reston, Virginia, 20191. eMotion rents space from the Conservatory Ballet and is NOT in any way affiliated or part of the Conservatory Ballet. eMotion is its own Limited Liability Company. The events are held mostly in Fairfax, Arlington and Prince William County. Check out the video below to see what makes eMotion different.
When does the next round of T.E.A.M. start?
T.E.A.M. runs from September through June. Enrollment for T.E.A.M. is available NOW to join for our 2017-2018 season. Sign up is available here.
