The Immortal Dance Force Competitive Dance Team

Immortal Dance Force provides an intense growth opportunity for the driven student who loves to compete and excels in a team environment. Our goal is to enhance the student’s dance experience by attending a dance convention, competing in one dance competition and supporting them to rise to each challenge. With ‘team’ at the heart of members and educators, this program is driven by disciplined collaboration, healthy competition, tenacity, and technical growth.

Immortal Dance Force is a Gotta Dance Performance Ensemble. Their debut season was in the Fall of 2012, and through hard work and team building, they were rewarded with tremendous success. In 7 years, Immortal Dance Force has grown to become a dance team with a very successful record in competitive dance.

2. 2-one-hour sessions with a choreographer to set piece.

All pairings and costumes are determined by the Immortal Faculty and Board.  If you competed in a solo, duo or trio and would like to repeat last year’s dance that’s a great opportunity to learn and grow.

Immortal Dance Force:

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I register for more than one dance style?
Yes!  You can register for all styles that you auditioned for in January.

If my dancer auditioned for Jazz & Tap, can they still register for a Ballet group?
Unfortunately they can not.  Without having auditioned for Ballet we do not have a score to place them in the correct group with Immortal.  They can however register for the Jazz and Tap groups.

Will my dancer be accepted into all groups which she registers for?
Not all dancers will be placed in each style that they register for.  It’s possible that a dancer who auditioned for Ballet and Jazz will only be accepted into a Jazz group.  This is based off of your dancer’s score and skill level.  While there could be 20 dancers at the same skill level and score range, there could also only be 2.  Availability can not be determined until after the preliminary registration.

Why can’t you tell which group my dancer has been placed in at this time?
After registration is completed, Gotta Dance needs to see all the dancers skill levels and scores for each style to determine if your dancer can be placed in the correct group.  Unfortunately we can not guarantee availability for groups within each skill level and score.

Can my dancer do a solo/duet or trio?
All dancers wishing to compete a solo/duet/trio must apply to the Immortal Board first.  Please complete application here. If their application is approved, dancers are required to compete in a group of the same style.  Meaning, for a Jazz solo, dancers also need to compete with a Jazz group.

When will we find out which groups my dancer has been accepted into?
All contracts with group placements and schedules will be emailed out on July 16th.  Dancers and families can then officially register to participate in those groups.
