DC Xtreme Allstarz is a non-profit competitive dance organization. DC Xtreme was founded by Zakia Gregory in the Fall of 2010. DC Xtreme is a competitive dance organization. Our goal is to teach the value of team building, sportsmanship, character, and integrity. We are excited and ready to dance!!!! Our dancers currently compete in hip hop, but Fall 2018 we plan to add Pom to our curriculum. Our organization accept kids ages 5-18 to audition. Auditions are held in April, conditioning and training is over the summer, and the season officially starts in August.
DC Xtreme is determined to teach the value of team building, sportsmanship, character and integrity while keeping academics first. Mostly importantly, we focus on the kids having fun. We want our Xtreme athletes to learn lifelong lessons in friendship, teamwork, time management, and helping others. We pride ourselves in promoting the importance of balancing your education with sports. DC Xtreme promotes strong self-confidence, self-respect, discipline, and appreciation through dance. We inspire every dancer to find the imagination inside themselves as they dance to tell the audience a story each year. DC Xtreme values the Washington DC metropolitan area communities, building relationships with our neighbors, and giving back to the community. The success of each dancer is a result of great teamwork between the dance studio and our dance studio families.
