Preps Dance Co. Made the Beacon!

Preps Dance Co. is Access Broadway’s 2014 Stage Door Cup Champions

Preps Dance Company

Preps Dance Co. has achieved a true “Cinderella Story” by becoming Access Broadway’s 2014 Stage Door Cup Champions for winning America’s Best Debut School. Preps Dance is not even 2 years established and have achieved the following: 3 productions in the Athens Theatre, multiple charity events, and public performances, including being guest dancers at the Daytona Cubs Stadium and Downtown Disney. Preps Dance Co. has also won both the 2014 Regional and National Championship at Access Broadway as a Debut School.

Competing against performing arts schools that had 200 plus students attending Access Broadway’s National Competition, Preps Dance Co. was 28 strong including dancers from ages 5-20 years age. Many of the youngest level of Preps Dance Co. became National Champions before attending their first year of Kindergarten. For all of Preps Dance Co. this was an amazing achievement especially since none of the dancers had ever competed in any type of dance competition before. Not too bad for rookies.

Miss Lyndsay Fuller opened Preps Dance School & Company in August of 2012 after various dance school closings in our local area. Miss Fuller wanted to create a home for dancers who strived to dance at the pre-professional level and who wanted to perform for our local community. According to Access Broadway Judges Missy Zimmer Hubbard and Andrew Hubbard, Miss Fuller is doing a phenomenal job teaching her dancers to be able to compete with some of the largest studios in the country; they state her dances are in “good hands with a good heart.”

Other Access Broadway judges had only great words to describe how impressed Preps Dance Co. was, not only in their performance ability, but they were also impressed by their professionalism and grace. Preps Dance won 18 Platinum Awards, 10 High Gold Awards, and 2 gold Awards plus Best Debut Dancer – Alyssa Chute, Best Duo/Trio, 10 1st Place High Scores, and 5 2nd Place High Scores.

Preps Dance is located upstairs in rooms 201, 202, and 203 in the First Baptist Church of DeLand 725 N. Woodland Blvd. DeLand, Florida 32720. Phone Number (386) 227-7377. Email
