DANCE/CHEER for GRADES 5-8

Teamwork Development:  Working with others is essential in all areas of life. Working with teammates from different backgrounds and skill levels in competitive dance helps our dancers to see themselves as part of a team, not just an individual, which helps them strive for success as a team. Increased Skills Acquisition: When you are part of competitive dance, steps, movements and methods are at a faster pace. With the practice and dedication needed, you can watch your dancer dramatically increase their abilities in a shorter time. Valuable Life Lessons: Competitions for dance teach valuable life lessons. You can expect your child to learn about teamwork, resolving differences, how to be a polite winner or loser, professional networking, and much more all within the sport of competitive dance. Creative Expression: Expressing yourself is something that many people struggle with. When your child is in competitive dance, they can enjoy a creative and active outlet. Performance Skills. Students will perform for home basketball games and different school events.
