DPA Dazzlers - Mini, Petite, Junior, Senior

Mission and Goals:

The goal of this Competition Team is to allow students an opportunity to compete and perform in public venues in a nurturing environment.   We offer a place to grow as a dancer/performer and build self-esteem, while focusing on professional training first and foremost. They train throughout the year to develop the skills in a broad range of dance styles, focusing especially on jazz and contemporary, as well as developing skills in improvisation. We want to create artists as well as technicians.

The head coach, Traci Borrego, is a former NFL cheerleader she worked as an ambassador for the St.Louis Rams organization doing numerous community relations and charity events. She also fostered her talents by judging regional and national dance & cheer competitions. Traci has been a dance instructor in ballet, jazz, pom and hip hop over the last twenty years and founded the Dazzlers in 2007. Her unique flare for precision, form, and technique have transferred into her teaching and choreography.  Traci's passion for this art allows her to compose dances designed to suggest story, interpret emotion, and enliven shows.
