Each year, the Nancy Doizé School of Dance crowns a member of the Doizé Dream Team with the title of "Doizé Dream Teen" to represent the team and studio. The Dream Teen is a role model for not only the other team members, but all of the dancers at the studio. She sets an example of dedication, grace, helpfulness, and sportsmanship.
