Our class is as follows: The parents will get a curriculum of skills learned the first class!

1. Warm-ups - A choreographed warm-up is done in an efficient and timely manner and allows the student instructor to lead the routine while the Instructor observes the student and reinforces proper stretching. Students need to be on time. The warm-up aids in flexibility and is very important to proceed with the class.

2. Roll Call - Please call the studio when you are absent. Absences hold up the progress of class.

3. Center floor techniques and Tumbling - This is one on one with the student and reinforces new skills learned. Students learn terminology for jumps, kicks, stunts, cheers, tumbling, and much more.

4. Dance Routines and Cheers - the routines are practiced, perfected, and made harder as the student progresses.  Students are encouraged to practice at home. Repetition will aid the student in progressing.

5. Condition Exercises - Reinforces the exercises they should be doing at home to condition and letting the muscles cool down.

We thank-you for putting your trust in us to teach your child!
