Footworks Dance Company has a national award winning competition program. We have received numerous regional and national recognitions. We have been honored for best choreography, teacher of the year, FDC people’s choice, Industry Dance Awards, Video of the Year and the Studio Excellence Awards, among many more. We are the Senior Rising Star National Grand Champions of 2015 and National Grand Champion Runner Ups for 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
Company dancers compete in regional competitions in Wisconsin (in places like Green Bay, Milwaukee or Madison), and the midwest (primarily the Chicago area or Minnesota). WE HAVE TEAMS for many interests and commitment levels. Footworks also competes at a national competition each season.
Our "Twinkle Star Program" is a terrific program for the young dance competitor (age 4 - 9). We will teach the value of teamwork and work to train dancers in stage performance. We will also provide fun "age appropriate" routines. Dancers will compete with a jazz and lyrical dance. This program also incorporates ballet and tap into their training (through our enrichment program). We want to set our dancer's up to be successful in their competition and dance journey from the start. Watch your dancer shine on stage and see their confidence grow in our Twinkle Star Competition Dance program. Dancers in this program are required to have previous experience in dance but no audition will be required. If you do not have previous dance training, a private audition would be required.
Our "constellation" company teams (for ages 7 - 19) are designed for boys and girls who want to take their dance training to the next level. These teams are by audition. These dancers will be committed to a higher level of dance training. These dancers will compete in several group routines in the genres of jazz, lyrical, contemporary, tap, modern and/or hip hop. All dancers will also participate in our ballet program. Please call the studio for audition information (920-423-7166), or fill out an audition registration form on our website.
Footworks also offers a "Star" competition program. This program is for dancers age 10 to 19. Dancers will be required to audition. This program is for dancers interested in a little less commitment within the competition company. This will allow dancers to be incorporated into our competition program while focussing on individual genre specialties. Dancers who love hip hop, tap, lyrical and jazz are encouraged to check into this program. If you only want to compete in 1 or 2 genres, this is the program for you. Dancers will also learn ballet within our enrichment program.
We are not out to beat anyone; we are out to promote team spirit and motivate our dancers by exposing them to high caliber talent. We work to produce dancers who are the best they can be! The value of a dancer in not found in a trophy, but rather within themselves.

Why Choose A Company? The benefits of competitive dance, go far beyond learning dance skills and winning trophies. Lifelong friendships are created through competition and socializing with dance friends. The value of teamwork and hard work is created. Dancers learn to trust and depend on one another as well as being a reliable person themselves. Self confidence, poise and respect, are other life lessons dancers can take with them for a lifetime, far beyond their dance classes.
