which develops flexibility, rhythm, extension, balance, speed and strong movement in dancers, preparing them for a lifetime of dancing. Stu-
dents who continue in jazz classes build upon the movements and technique that students have already learned.
HIP-HOP (Ages 6 & up): Students will learn different hip-hop techniques. We will use the latest sounds in R&B, alternative rock, acoustic, and
pop music.
POMS: All poms teams will be performing at the Fall Festival & Children’s Christmas Party, along with 4 park district competitions (3 regular
and 1 state). There is an additional fee for competitions. Poms girls are also included in the annual recital. Since Poms is a competing team
every child must take at least one additional class. i.e. jazz, ballet, or hip hop. You cannot take just Poms. MINI DIVISION (K - 2nd): They
will be learning performance skills and dance techniques with pom arms and jazz incorporated combos and routines. JUNIOR DIVISION (3rd
- 5th): The girls will gain performance skills and pom techniques along with jazz techniques. VARSITY DIVISION (6th & Up): These girls will
learn a variety of advanced skills to help them improve their performance, pom, and overall dance skills to further themselves in junior high
and high school dance teams.
TECHNIQUE: This class consists of going back to the basics of dance. The class hopes to improve technique in all steps and styles of dance
including Ballet, Jazz, Pointe, and Lyrical. This class not only practices kicks, jumps, leaps, turning leaps, and turns but it will also use the
Ballet barre to improve the basic technique mechanics needed to perform every dance step as well as improve flexibility to improve jumps,
leaps, and kicks. This is not a recital class.
