The Mascot and Mini teams are conducted a lot like a Combination Class. They still do ballet, tumbling skills and more. They perform at 2 competitions and have community performances. If your daughter loves to come to dance and loves the show time she would love to be on the Mascots or Mini Team. We do not stress the girls out or talk about winning. It’s all about doing our best and having fun. The girls form camaraderie among their class mates and have team bonding with the older girls. It develops skills the students will use to succeed in life and make memories to last a life time. Although the costumes and fund-raising is a little more than the regular class it is spread out for affordability. Because this is a team there are attendance rules for class, extra practices, and performances. We give out a yearly calendar at the beginning of the year giving the parents plenty of time to plan around these events. We are excited that you are joining our Team and look forward to enriching your child for years to come. We reserve the right to combine these teams if needed.
