The studio lays out our schedule by “Terms.” This is a 2-month to 4-month period like “quarters” or “semesters.” We structure our classes so our students get the most out of each class they register for. Recreational students have the ability to start at any point during the term except for summer term, but are committed to complete the term period. During the Summer term, we are choreographing and teaching our recital routines, and new students in the middle of the term make it nearly impossible for previous students to be ready for recital. Our Lifestyle Program students have the ability to enroll within the first two weeks of each term and are required to participate for the full term. At the start of each Term we have the ability to update the schedule and any events which fit that season.
As a studio, it is our goal to provide opportunities to perform for all of our dancers, but also understand not all want to. Each year we will hold a recital which virtually all students have the ability to participate in.
We audition for our Performance Teams and Competition Team at the end of the Summer Term. Each prospective member needs to fill out a brief online “application” and learn a small number of very short routines. The applicant needs to submit to us videos of them performing the audition routines, a short improvised dance and a personal introduction telling us why they want to be part of our teams.
We have divided our Performance Team into two teams, as some venues and parades have a minimum age for performers.
Our Performance Teams will provide the members a chance to perform in public at community events, parades and other venues. The Performance Teams will also perform at our annual recital. We work diligently to ensure that each member of the team can spread their joy of dance to the public and improve our students’ public confidence – if you can dance in public, public speaking shouldn’t be so intimidating.
In 2019, our Performance team was one of the opening acts for the Harlem Globetrotters at Saint Martin’s Pavilion!
Our 2020-2021 Competition Team will be participating in three competitions and two conventions! Unless we qualify for Nationals, we will keep travel in-state and work to keep the cost of in-state travel and hotels to a minimum.
