Starz Artistic Performing Company

It is hard for me to believe that it’s been 15 years since I started my own competition team, Starz Artistic Performing Company. For those of you who don’t know, “Starz” is the company and competition team at Dianne’s School of Dance. This company consists of great kids and parents who participate in classes 3 or more times per week. These kids not only dance, many of them are Honor Roll students and are very active in their schools and communities. We are very proud of their accomplishments at dance and in life! As a group of Starz, we have been active in raising money and volunteering in the community with organizations such as “Meals On Wheels”, “Operation Christmas Kidz”, “Down Syndrome Association”, and “Relay for Life”.

SAPCO has been recognized as one of the “Top 50 Studios on the move in the U.S.” by Dance Spirit Magazine. They were also ranked 16th in the entire Southeast Region during the 2011 Season by the Federation of Dance Competitions. To our surprise, SAPCO’s Senior Team was invited to the Dance WORLD Championships in August of 2012 and placed 5th in the World!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have been named National Champions for the 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013, 2015 & 2016 seasons and always win top honors at regional competitions. They have won numerous overall titles and choreography awards. Way to Go STARZ!!!!!

Starz Artistic Cloggers started 6 years ago under the direction of Hoyt Starkey and has had such a successful year! The clogging teams always win many overall high scores. The clogging & jazz teams danced at Disney World during Spring Break this year and did an amazing job! We are so proud that Starz Artistic Cloggers were named National Champions at the American Clogging Hall of Fame in October of 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016!!!!

A very special thank you to the staff of SAPCO for their tireless efforts in making our company so successful! All of our staff and instructors have put countless hours into choreography, rehearsing, and being with our company for all of the many other activities and events! Thank you for helping the kids grow and improve each and every year!
