DANCE TEAM AND CHEER PREP CLASSES

American All-Star is offering classes to help students, age 8 – 15, prepare for and be successful in trying out for junior high or high school dance teams and cheerleader squads.  Students will learn important and necessary dance team and cheerleading techniques in addition to elements of “performing” to ensure a positive experience when auditioning for school spirit teams.

CURRICULUM

These classes will instruct students in proper stretching techniques to acquire right and left splits, toe touches, kicks, and important elements of jazz technique.  Classes will also instruct students in basic dance team techniques (jazz, high kick, pom, hip hop) cheer jumps, technique, and voice projection.  The 8- class series will build each week and will culminate in a “mock” try-out for students to participate in as well as a final “performance” for family and friends.  All participants will be assessed at the beginning and end of the 8 – class series to track student progress.
